While at the lodge, you can enjoy their new guest activity called BEHIND THE SCENES; its main focus is to educate people and directly showcase the current conservation work underway at Majete. In the 1980 and 1990’s Majete Wildlife Reserve was in precarious situation , experiencing serious poaching with the last elephant population disappearing by 1992; widespread logging and charcoal burning; inadequate resources rendering scouts’ work ineffective and zero tourist revenue.
BEHIND THE SCENES is a chance for visitors to see and learn how Majete was transformed from a depleted Reserve into the thriving wildlife destination it is today. The visitors visit the law enforcement operations room where law enforcement officers describe the period before African Parks Majete (APM) took on responsibility for the rehabilitation, development and management of Majete Wildlife Reserve. They are shown the muzzle loading guns, snares and traps that have been confiscated over the yearsand learn about the current anti-poaching activities.
From there the visitors learn about the and the reintroduction of 2,554 animals from 13 species and visit the holding bomas used before a release, then visit the 142 km fence which surrounds the park and helps protect the wildlife and the surrounding communities. Finally the visitors are taken to one of the artificial water-holes within the Reserve which were constructed to provide strategic water points for the wildlife.
