Wildlife Conservation Safari
Wildlife Conservation Safari Victoria Falls
Discover Safaris, in support of the Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Unit (VFAPU), launched the Wildlife Conservation and Awareness Safari to raise awareness for wildlife conservation efforts that are taking place behind the scenes in the Zambezi National Park.
During the course of this safari, clients are given the full background and history of the unit and are able to learn about many fascinating aspects involved in the unit’s operations, the challenges faced and the huge successes VFAPU has achieved to date. The participants on this safari are educated on the various types of poaching that take place in the region and are shown how snares that are laid to poach mammals are laid.
The clients are taken for a field trip into the Zambezi National Park where they may be tasked to search for any mammals injured through poaching at the time, identify spoor, patrol and sweep for wire snares and generally visit areas to investigate for any signs of poaching. The important point is that because the clients are paying for this experience, it allows us to visit areas that are not often patrolled and the more trips that run, the more frequently we can cover these areas.
This safari effectively provides a useful presence at ground level, to deter various forms of poaching, whilst the clients get to play an important role in conservation efforts.
