CLAWS (Communities Living Amongst Wildlife Sustainability) is an NGO founded by Dr Andrew Stein, based in the village of Seronga 30km from the camp.
CLAWS collaborates with local communities to develop innovative approaches to promote human-wildlife co existence.
Kadizora Camp supports the efforts of the CLAWS Delta Research Centre and has seen the improvements they have implemented to reduce human-wildlife conflict.
Lions are an icon of the Africa savanna, yet recent surveys show drastic declines in their populations across the continent. As human populations expand, the range of lions and their prey have declined, leaving remnant, isolated populations with increased risk of inbreeding.
In Southern Africa, one large continuous population still roams across the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA), an area which expands across five countries and multiple land use systems. This area encompasses the Okavango Delta.
Conservation & COMMUNITY
Kadizora Camp is the only Lodge in our area that employs 95% of the staff from the local community. It is also the only lodge within the concession that is Botswana owned. We are passionate about responsible tourism partnering with conservation organisations, and actively drive community projects that makes a difference.
