Imvelo Safari Lodges launched a brand new conservation course in 2021 aimed at young people (17-25 years) keen to gain an understanding of community based wildlife conservation .  They have just announced 2 new dates for 2022 – both based at Camelthorn Lodge in Hwange NP and offering an opportunity to really engage and understand wildlife, conservation and the incredibly important influence and support from the communities surrounding wildlife reserves as well as the impact and importance of supporting those communities.
