Explore the wilderness on foot, with snorkel gear or by dug-out canoe. You will see the difference Manda is making – and by staying at Nkwichi, you will be part of it.
Established in 1999 the Project forges an invincible bond between protecting one of Africa’s last true wildernesses, releasing an African community’s true potential, and boosting the standards of international tourism.
Working closely with the 20,000 people in this vast area, Nkwichi has helped each of the 15 villages to set up a Community Committee. Through these Committees, six schools have been building, a maize mill, a maternity clinic, 60km of roads and over 700 farmers have received training in sustainable agriculture.
With assistance from the Swedish Government and the Ford Foundation, a Community Conservation Area of 120,000 hectares has been established in the names of the local communities.
Nkwichi has been recognised as a pioneering eco-tourism establishment and has been awarded many accolades, including the most recent Conde Nast Traveller World Saver Award in the ‘Doing it All’ category for small resorts 2012.
