The Timbavati Foundation was concerned about the litter building up outside of our two control access points situated on the entry to the Guernsey and Klaserie roads. This is not only an environmental issue but also creates a negative impression on the many tourists and local visitors to our region. We decided to do something about this and refuse bins were assembled at the environmental school to place at the access points. A big thank you must go to Rudamans of Nelspruit/Hoedspruit for the donation of the drums.

School students attending the school for the week were introduced to cleaning up the environment “hands on”. Fun was had by all as the areas were transformed from unsightly sites to clean and tidy areas we can all be proud of. The areas are moni-tored on a weekly basis and the litter is removed by the Timbavati Foundation and transported to the nearby Buy-Back refuse recycling centre in Acornhoek. More projects of this kind are in the pipeline as we do our part in cleaning up our environment for the benefit of current and future generations.
