Our Top Impact Partners


By Michelle Welvering on December 20, 2022

As a luxury African safari company passionate about sustainability and conservation, we at Rhino Africa are always on the lookout for like-minded organisations to partner with. We're all about making positive change in Africa, and in 2023, we're excited to be working with some truly inspirational "earth angels". Learn more about our Impact Partners.

Good Work Foundation

First up, we've got the Good Work Foundation. These guys are all about education, digital literacy, and entrepreneurship in rural areas of South Africa. We believe that providing support and education to communities is crucial for empowering future generations to become conservationists, innovators, and leaders.

Despite the challenges the pandemic brought over these past couple of years, the Good Work Foundation has thrived in leaps and bounds – opening a sixth Mpumalanga-based Digital Learning Campus and enrolling 50,234 students in their Open Learning Academy to date. It's been a total game-changer for these kids and their families!

Wildlife Act

Back in 2012, we joined forces with Wildlife Act to support their team of passionate conservationists in their mission to protect endangered and threatened species and bring them back from the brink of extinction. We strive to expand their conservation efforts and provide critical support to the rangers on the front lines of protecting wildlife.

Together with our Impact Partner, we're committed to safeguarding the future of our planet's wildlife and ensuring that future generations can enjoy the beauty and diversity of these incredible creatures. Over the past two years, they've achieved a myriad of milestones, including saving and tracking hundreds of animals as well as educating 124 new Conservation Ambassadors.

Khumbulani Day Care Centre

Khumbulani Day Care Centre is an inspiring initiative that Rhino Africa is proud to be a part of. As a haven for 300 HIV Aids-infected and -affected children, Khumbulani was born out of a passion for providing a safe and supportive environment for these young lives. Its inconspicuous beginnings in 2000 in the two-bedroom home of Gloria Bebeza are a testament to the power of determination and the desire to make a difference in the world.

Through their partnership with Rhino Africa and a broad network of funders, their facility has grown immensely with four permanent staff members, 15 volunteers and approximately 300 beneficiaries. Khumbulani is truly inspirational – providing access to education, healthcare, and other essential services to rural communities in need.

Rhinos Saving Rhinos

Last but definitely not least, in our pursuit of protecting Africa's wildlife, two other initiatives near and dear to our hearts are Challenge4ACause and Save the Rhino Trust

Challenge4ACause is our annual cycling event, where we cycle some of the most remote and unruly routes in the wildest corners of Africa – all the while raising funds to support the conservation of Africa's endangered species and the upliftment of impoverished communities. 

We also support Save the Rhino Trust in protecting the highly endangered desert-adapted black rhino population. This partnership allows us to work together to ensure the survival of these rhinos in Namibia's Damaraland region and positively impact the future of these magnificent mammals.

About the author 

Michelle Welvering

Growing up, Michelle always wanted to become a world-renowned artist, a kickboxing-champion and an eccentric explorer – aka a Kickboxing Exploring Artist! After pursuing an education in Fine Arts and opening her own Kickboxing gym in Pretoria, an unexpected twist led her to a six-year stint as a travel consultant in South African tourism. She believes that all things happen for a reason and, driven by adventure, she was eager to find a more “wild” and cultural space to call home. This led her to wander the Western Cape coastline, fall in love with the city of Cape Town and, of course, her workplace, Rhino Africa.
