Charity begins at Home!

Can you believe that an operator can start a charity whose only benefits to date go to improving their PRIVATE concession?
Well it is happening, African Bush Camps in association with Elefence has raised money to establish solar pumps at water holes in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe.
Although quite worthy if it is limited to waterholes which are on their concession rather than the many other waterholes that are in need of refurbishment within the public areas of the park, it strikes me that this is a disgrace!
Use the profits made from your own business to improve your concession, charitable contributions should be limited to the whole of the park, just as Friends of Hwange do!

What a joke!
