Besides Big Five game drives and stunning landscapes, an important part of being on safari (and on any tour, really) is experiencing the culture of the local people. Our travelers love the interactions with the people they meet on tour—from visiting schools to shopping local marketplaces—and one very special opportunity is on the Rose of Charity visit in Zimbabwe as part of our Untouched Africa: Botswana & Zimbabwe safari tour.
This organization formed in 2007 with the goal of “doing something amazing” and making a positive difference in the lives of children in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe. They work to support and assist children who are homeless, living with HIV/AIDS, disabled or orphaned by giving them access to food, clothing, education and medical care—currently helping 70 children, from 6 months to 16 years old.
The house in the heart of the Chinotimba township serves as a loving and stable home for abandoned babies and a meeting place for educational workshops as well as arts and crafts classes.
