conservation on Amakhala
A strong conservation ethic has been passed down by the forefathers of Amakhala Game Reserve (AGR) to the current generation. The properties that joined together to form Amakhala Game Reserve have been kept in the same farming families since the 1850s and the concept of sustainable stocking rates of domestic stock and clearing of invasive vegetation have been instilled into the reserve since the 1920s.

The Amakhala Foundation is home to the community and conservation projects of Amakhala Game Reserve, as well as the educational projects of the Conservation Centre.
It was established in 2009 to coincide with the Reserve’s 10th anniversary, and is overseen by a Trust with five members. The Foundation is funded by outside donor bodies as well as through the payment of bed levies from Amakhala’s commercial lodges.
