Bushlife Safaris are active members in the Mana Pools National Park community and are passionate about wildlife conservation in Zimbabwe. Nick Murray, based in Mana Pools, works alongside a team of experienced pro-guides and trackers, whose main focus is to save our environment from the poachers who inhabit the area. In 2015, following many years of continuous work on the anti-poaching front, the Bushlife Support Unit was set up, uniting the Zambezi Valley community together in a consolidated effort to stop poaching in the area.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
