We are dedicated to the protection and conservation of the Zambezi River and its wilderness areas. This is an area which includes the UNESCO World Heritage Areas of the Mana Pools National Park and Sapi and Chewore Safari Areas, the Lower Zambezi National Park, the Matusadona National Park and numerous others. Importantly, we are the first Australian-based effort focused principally on conservation activities in the vicinity of the Zambezi River.
As part of this mission, Diwa Zambezi aims to expose Australians and New Zealanders to both the wonder of the Zambezi, and the tribulations it is constantly confronted with. We seek to inform of the reality and existence of poverty and its effects on Africa’s people and wildlife. We hope to develop and maintain the interest and passion of those who visit the Zambezi with us so that in time they too begin contributing toward the Zambezi’s preservation for posterity. Notwithstanding the above, we welcome involvement from people of all nations, not just those from Australia and New Zealand.
Important elements in us ultimately achieving our vision of preserving the Zambezi for future generations are as follows:
- The use of eco-tourism profits for conservation works;
- Popularisation of African wildlife, habitats and culture through the provision of wares in our online shop;
- Direct application of donation, membership and fundraising revenue to complement the revenues generated through points 1 and 2.
It is important that you note that as an Australian charity, Diwa Zambezi annually allocates a portion of its commercial and donation revenues to Australian conservation initiatives in addition to those in Zambia and Zimbabwe.
