Amakhala Game Reserve continues to provide an excellent example of how communities can convert agricultural land for conservation purposes while promoting a viable tourism economy. Protecting the rhinos is a key factor in the ongoing success and sustainability of this initiative.
We ask all our guests to contribute to the Conservation Levy, which goes towards the protection measures established to counter the ever-present threat of criminal rhino poaching and to provide education for our future conservationists.
