make a difference Journey with purpose
The Isibindi Foundation allows guests at Isibindi Africa Lodges to be philanthropic travellers, as their contribution ensures a meaningful impact in the lives of people residing in our communities, and the conservation of our natural areas through our various projects.

Saving our Rhino in the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park
The Isibindi Foundation alongside Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge has launched a campaign to assist in the protection of rhino within Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park (HIP) by supporting the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife HIP K9 Unit.
Saving our rhino Overview of the campaign
The Isibindi Foundation alongside Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge has launched a campaign to assist in the preservation of rhino within Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park (HIP) by supporting the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife HIP K9 Unit. K9 Units require substantial funding as the training of dogs and handlers is expensive. The approximate cost of a trained dog is in the region of R90 000.00, and handler training is R39 000.00. The total combined cost for dog and handler is R129 000.00. The areas where the funds raised will be used include the expansion of the unit (our goal is to add 3 more dogs and handlers to the unit) and to ensure the longevity of the unit by ensuring its long-term sustainability and maintenance.
