 We are very proud to have partnered with Marromeu Safaris in this incredible initiative. They, to, have significantly invested in their wildlife, anti-poaching and community — and it is excellent to see business competitors working hand in hand for the greater good of the conservation economy. Of particular note is their team that worked exceptionally hard in the construction of the bomas as well as their leadership, which was invaluable on the logistics of arranging officials to meet the lions in the field saving some precious time on transfer days.
