Poaching is still one of the Kafue NP’s major challenges. Its enormous size, limited accessibility and little funding are the stumbling blocks. At the beginning of the season all lodge operators of the area met to discuss the way forward. With ‘Game Rangers International’ as the implementing body carrying out the aims of the ‘Kafue Conservation Society’ capable organisations have formed and every operator has agreed to raise funds by an additional bednight levy of 5USD. This levy supports directly the work of two specialist anti-poaching teams so guests can be assured of direct link between their stay and poaching reduction.
