The Sisters do it for themselves and conservation

Winning prestigious awards in the conservation, environmental  and tourism arenas in two consecutive years, the all-female anti-poaching team, the Black Mambas, did it again at a world tourism conference.

The founder, Craig Spencer, head warden at the private Balule Game Reserve, with its close proximity to the Kruger National Park and a no-fence arrangement, has now seen this team play a major role in stopping 75% of possible poaching events, in its tracks.

Fourteen women were selected for this winning team six years ago and are notching up  top awards in the respective fields, beating worldwide competition. Not only have they had major successes in stopping poaching, but the illegal bush meat industry and traps in the 127 kilometre private lodge, have almost been totally eradicated.
