We are primarily concerned and committed to the long-term conservation of the few remaining pristine wildlife areas within the Zambezi Region in Namibia. We believe that the future of these wildlife areas is dependent on a strong committed partnership between Government, private investors and the local communities that live alongside these wildlife areas. Tourism activities must remain sensitive to the integrity of wildlife areas whilst offering real concrete benefits to local communities.
African Monarch Lodges generates awareness of nature conservation in Namibia. We work closely with rural communities and conservancies, to ensure guest experiences are well managed to give back to the people and wildlife affected most by the various land uses. Essentially, our focus is on promoting responsible tourism.
African Monarch Lodges recognizes the significant contributions of the local people to conservation and collaborates with them to foster our shared commitment to environmental stewardship. Our integrated holistic approach to conservation incorporates traditional knowledge and cultural values and results in tangible benefits. We work as a partner, making sure that the needs of the communities and local priorities are identified and addressed.
Our programs target urgent threats, secure land tenure and access, support local rights and improved governance, and strengthen livelihoods. Our initiatives support the rights of the local people to participate more fully in making the decisions that will shape their futures.
