About Us

We are Malawi’s first wildlife sanctuary and environmental education facility. Our remit has grown in response to the emerging conservation challenges of the past decade and we focus on where we can deliver the greatest impact. Our mission is to safeguard Malawi’s wildlife and empower the guardians of the wild. 

All of the money raised through our volunteering programme goes directly into the wildlife centre and is not tied up in administrative costs. It also supports our education and community projects which are essential for the future of conservation in Malawi and allows us to provide employment for over 40 members of local staff.

With donations and volunteering fees we are able to provide food and essential medical care for the animals, as well as improving and implementing our rescue and rehabilitation projects to ensure their survival not only within the centre but also when they are released back into the wild.
