ABOUT US

FACTS AND FIGURES

As of the end of 2011, Children in the Wilderness has hosted 4 065 children in seven Southern African countries, changing their lives dramatically and positively. As the programme has been rolled out to all the regions in which Wilderness Safaris operates, so its contribution has become greater. Children in the Wilderness hosted 563 children in 2011 and is determined to increase this number in 2012. Countries such as Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe host just under 100 children per year with smaller numbers being hosted in South Africa, Namibia, Malawi and Seychelles annually or biennially.
