Africa Foundation has been active in Botswana since 2014, working alongside the andBeyond Botswana team to support rural communities close to the world-famous Okavango Delta. Botswana is renowned for having one of the largest conservation land ratios in Africa, with 25% of the country set aside for its spectacular wilderness and wildlife areas. The Okavango Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage site and a major tourism drawcard. The Delta is home to Gogomoga and Tsutsubega, two isolated villages in which Africa Foundation is active. Africa Foundation is also active in Sexaxa, a small rural village in the Ngamiland District, 19kms north-east of Maun Airport.
Our partnership leverages the strengths of the two organisations, with the local &Beyond team directly supporting the work of our local project team and our community partners. We believe that conservation is best achieved by ensuring that the benefits of conservation are shared by the communities that are the stewards of Africa’s conservation landscapes and seascapes. Our work has a focus on healthy ecosystems, future foundations and future leaders.
