The Hide Community Trust is a non-profit organisation, committed to conservation and sustainable community development. This Trust runs alongside The Hide Safari Camp and is partnered with a local community that surrounds Hwange National Park. The trust’s ethos is that ‘there is no conservation without community conservation’ – the two go hand in hand. Therefore, their aim is for the relief of poverty, the promotion of education, as well as the benefits of conservation. They strongly believe that by empowering communities that surround the Park with sustainable development initiatives, the local economy can further develop, with poverty falling and environmental pressures decreasing, resulting in more optimism in the region! United we are all stronger. Guests visiting The Hide are welcome to visit and get involved with the trust’s initiatives. These include tree planting, working with local farmers, visiting the school, which has an impressive nutritional food garden, as well as visit the women’s centre, where they make beautiful crafts out of recycled goods.
