Makumu Private Game Lodge supports Eco Children, a non-profit organisation that was initiated by the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve which focuses on hands-on environmental education and whole school development.

Now you can visit Eco Children too!

Eco Children operates in the provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga in South Africa, areas with some of the country’s most severe social and environmental issues.

Their aim is to sow seeds of change, empowering children by increasing their awareness of conservation; stimulating their desire to learn; improving their learning environment; improving the quality of their education; and providing opportunities for talented learners.

By stimulating an interest in nature and improving learning environments, they strive to have a positive impact on environmental awareness and education amongst the youth in these areas, leading to better conservation and economic outcomes for South Africa.

Makumu Private Game Lodge has been a proud supporter of Eco Children for several years, and due to the increase in guest requests for community projects to visit during their stay, we have now added an Eco Children tour to our list of activities in the area. Please find our Activities Fact Sheet here. 

During your visit, you will have the opportunity to meet the team that is so passionate about this project, meet some of the teachers as well as the children and of course see the school itself. This really gives guests a great experience of the local community, get to know the incredible Eco Children team, and delve deep into this fantastic project. Please contact us for more information on this tour.
