As partners of Somkhanda Game Reserve and Wildlands Trust, the Friends of Somkhanda have started another exciting journey. This journey entails the upgrading of Kudu Lodge, constructing a new Luxury Tented Safari Camp and supporting the Anti-Poaching Unit by obtaining the necessary equipment they will need in their extremely important and dangerous work.
Kudu Lodge consists of two blocks with 3 rooms in each. The renovation is estimated to cost R100,000 per room or a total of R600,000 to renovate the entire lodge.
Options available to achieve this goal are:
- A Friends of Somkhanda based group adopt one or both blocks. The group will raise funds or donate in kind towards the upgrade
- A Friend of Somkhanda individual contributor that donates money towards the upgrade
Both of the above can be Charitable/ Socio-Economic Development donations or Enterprise Development. The donations can also be a donation under S18A and a certificate can be issued.
In exchange for the donations the Group/Person will get free self-catering room nights every yearfor 5 years to the value of the donation (to be taken during low occupancy periods only).
Example: One block is estimated to cost R300,000 to renovate. The off-season price will be R800 per room per night, so this level of donation would equate to 375 room nights or 75 room nights per annum for 5 years. The same equation will be used for other amounts donated.
For further information regarding both projects please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
