Africa Albida Tourism, in support of Zimbabwe’s wildlife, will once again be hosting the annual Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Unit (VFAPU) fundraising golf day on 16 September, 2016 at Borrowdale Brooke Golf Club.
The Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Unit is a non-profit registered charitable trust dedicated to the preservation of wildlife and its natural habitat, and relies on donations in order to continue its conservation work in Victoria Falls and its surrounds.
The unit was established in 1999 by Charles Brightman, a local safari operator and conservationist, together with Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, Africa Albida Tourism’s flagship property, in an effort to fight the alarming levels of poaching that were taking place. Since that time, VFAPU has worked in close co-operation with the National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority and the Zimbabwe Republic Police, to achieve many successes. Other members of the tourism industry in Victoria Falls and across Zimbabwe also support the cause.
The golf day will take the form of a Four Ball Better Ball Stableford, and there are various ways in which individuals and organisations can participate. You may enter a team, sponsor a tee box or green, provide prizes, make a donation and more.
Support for this event is imperative in the fight against poaching activities in our region as well as educating communities about sustainable tourism. The battle lines have been drawn and it initiatives such as these, which are bolstering the efforts of anti-poaching units.
