Giving back

The Thulamahashe Children’s home, for orphaned and abandoned children, lies 40 km south of Kapama Private Game Reserve .  A trust was established in 2009 and with fund raising and contributions from Kapama, this children’s home is a safe haven for children of the area.  One of the highlights of the year is when Kapama treat the children to a game drive and a lovely Christmas dinner.  This is a wonderful time for everyone involved.
