Sifundo Birding Tours and Safaris has been working closely with Bird Life South Africa and the Zululand Birding Route in promoting Birding Tourism in rural local schools in Zululand. More than 15 local schools have benefited from these projects with a lot of help from the NGO’s who are also able to be involved in conservation. The aim of Sifundo Birding Tours and Safaris is to take these school children out in the local Game Reserves to let them explore nature and be given a chance to experience wildlife and the outdoors. Anyone interested in sponsoring such a trip for a rural school should please contact Sifundo Birding Tours or the Zululand Birding Route
