Our
Approach

Parfuri, at the far north of the Kruger National Park, is one of Africa’s most spectacular landscapes, where wildlife including elephant, buffalo, and big cats roam free across a transfrontier park that spans three countries. Pafuri is one of South Africa's top birding locations with more than 450 species recorded. 

RETURNAfrica partners with local communities to develop, market and manage high quality visitor and safari experiences at iconic destinations in Southern Africa in a way that benefits all. 

Partnerships that return benefits to the land and all it sustains.

RETURNAfrica works with local communities to create meaningful and sustainable benefits. They provide employment, training and skills development for community members and make direct financial contributions to projects which respond to a range of pressing needs. Eco-friendly amenities and skills development all play their part in nurturing the environment and improving lives. RETURNAfrica’s projects are carefully selected and responsibly governed. Offering unique visitor experiences, RETURNAfrica’s ethos focuses on making local partnerships work for conservation and development.

RETURNAfrica is a safari lodge operator engaging local communities and communal land-dwellers to commercialise rights held by them, and thereby securing the success of local conservation initiatives.

“When you reach the edge of the map and settle into this peaceful corner of Africa, it’s good to know that you are supporting a sustainable form of tourism, one that shows humans and wildlife can share the wilderness, for the benefit of both.” - RETURNAfrica

African Parks is a non-profit conservation organisation that manages 19 national parks and protected areas 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 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.

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.
