Majete Campsite – Majete Wildlife Reserve
The Majete self-catering community campsite is just inside the Majete Wildlife Reserve. It was built in 2007 and equipped with a thatched bar and dining space, barbeque area, toilets and hot showers. Power is provided through a solar system.
The campsite is owned and managed by a committee of local people from villages surrounding Majete. By staying at the Community Campsite you are contributing to the improvement of livelihoods of the surrounding communities. All income generated through the campsite goes directly into a Community Campsite Fund and when a sufficient profit accrues it is available for any of the 19 registered Community Based Organisations surrounding Majete to apply for financial support for building, maintaining or developing community facilities, such as schools, boreholes, churches and medical centres. A perfect example of wildlife and safari travel benefitting local communities.
The community has developed one, two and three night packages for the campsite which include camping fee, breakfast at the Mwembezi Restaurant and safari activities.
