Lodges within Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe, have introduced a voluntary conservation levy, effective from January 2016.

Concerned conservationists and stakeholders of Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park region have created a collaborative group: The Conservation & Wildlife Fund (CWF). The objective of CWF is to work together with the wildlife authorities in Zimbabwe to raise awareness, resource local authorities adequately and promote the sustainable use and management of wildlife. The founding stakeholder lodges, including African Bush Camps, The Hide, The Amalinda Collection and African Luxury Hideaways, have introduced a voluntary conservation levy of US$10 per person per night.

The levy applies to all new bookings and will not affect confirmed bookings prior to November 1, 2015. In 2017, the CWF intends to increase the levy to US$20 per person per night.
