Donate to HERD

We work with HERD Trust to support and care for the rescued Jabulani herd of elephants. The Trust came to be during the COVID pandemic when tourism stopped and we were unable as a lodge to support the elephants, due to a revenue halt. The Trust was born to encompass HERD elephant orphanage and the rescued herd and other integrated orphans and to use fundraising initiatives to bring in revenue to cover the high continuous costs of supporting these endangered animals in need. HERD relies on public funding to remain operational from month to month.
