AFRICAN PARKS

Conserving Africa’s national parks while also helping to support the futures of communities living alongside wildlife is a vast task. African Parks manages 19 national parks and protected areas in partnership with governments and local communities.

Our
Approach

Jamma International is proud to be supporting African Parks with their sustainable approach to wildlife conservation, economic development and poverty alleviation to ensure that each park is ecologically, socially, and financially sustainable in the long-term.


Founded in 2000, African Parks takes a clear business approach to conserving Africa’s wildlife and remaining wild areas, securing vast landscapes and carrying out the necessary activities needed to protect the parks and their wildlife. The organisation maintains a strong focus on economic development and poverty alleviation with a responsibility to make sure these areas survive into the future.

Working with local communities to ensure the sustainability of the use of their natural resources.

African Parks takes on the complete responsibility for the rehabilitation and long-term management of 19 national parks and protected areas in 11 countries covering over 14.2 million hectares in Angola, Benin, Central African Republic, Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, the Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Jamma International has been working with African Parks since 2018, to support their community projects within the Odzala-Kokoua National Park, Congo and before that anti-poaching work in Majete Wildlife Reserve, Malawi.

Where wildlife survives and thrives, there’s the opportunity for people to do so as well. All of this is inextricably linked.

“This is conservation at scale. If we can ensure that a significant portfolio of parks is handed over, intact and functioning to the next generation of conservation leaders, then I think we have fulfilled our responsibility.” Peter Fearnhead, African Parks CEO

The Khomani San are one of the last remaining groups of the indigenous people of South Africa. Jamma works with this neglected community to run their own primary school preparing the children for life in the nearest state school while ensuring that traditional knowledge and skills are transferred to the younger generations, enabling the San way of life to continue to develop.
