Cansaf Sustainability in Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana

Cansaf and sustainability

Our Commitment


CSR – The future of wildlife in Africa depends on the direct value that the local community derives from keeping the environment natural. 

Tourism is the tool through which the local community will derive this value – if this is not managed correctly and the local community feels left out we are going to see the demise of wildlife numbers, indigenous forests and ultimately the very product we all enjoy.

Of course tourism is a great provider of employment and this in itself helps but through CSR projects we can get the tourist dollar to have a far greater impact.


Provide Running Water to a Community

Visit a nearby Village Community where a project to assist the community has been identified – water and sanitation at a local school –

  • Problem - There is no running water at the school
  • solution pre arrival of the group – assess budget of client and with budget allowing some of the following - install pipe line to water source – storage tank – pipe line to ablution building – install toilet and basins
  • Solution during group event – sensitize group to the culture and life of the local community – explain what their representative company has done through financing a project etc
  • Visit the school with a pre-planned structured interactive program that allows the group to spend time in the community and at the school undertaking some of the tasks required to complete the work and also meet and appreciate the people and their culture further first hand



Woodland Replanting

Protection and Replanting Indigenous Woodland.

Cansaf is part of a project called the Zambesia Reforestation Project – propagation of indigenous seedlings and the planting of young indigenous trees back in the environment in the region. We work closely with the local communities to make them aware as to why they should not cause deforestation.
