The concession is classified as a community hunting area, the Company has made an independent commitment to improve the lives of the local African people.
The villages and communities on the concession receive the majority of the meat from the animals which are hunted on Safari. This not only provides these people with a vital source of protein, but creates an incentive for the local communities to conserve the wildlife, ensuring that they continue to prosper from it in the future.
Safaris de Mozambique employs approximately 50 people during the hunting season. The average Bread-winnner to dependant ratio is 1-8, which means that on average the company supports 400 people directly through employment.
To date, assistance to these communities has included the building and equipping of schools, and an administrative centre, and the drilling of boreholes to provide villages with potable water. Motorbikes have been given to the local police by the company, to assist in their efforts with fighting crime and WILDLIFE crime.
