Saadani Safari Lodge has set up a sister non-profit company called SANA (Saving Africa's Nature).
SANA aims to preserve areas of animal habitat and nature and key to this is collaboration with the local communities.
SANA invests in education and developing entrepreneurial ventures for the local communities to help them to grow out of poverty and also reduce the impact of human activities on the environment.
Environment: Educational Centre.
SANA is collaborating with The Kesho Trust to establish an environmental education centre. The centre will provide environmental education to students and people from the surrounding communities. Centre is also themed to provide a centre for the researches on the different environmental issues.
Education is a critical factor in the socio-economic development of the region. SANA pro-actively assists the local primary and secondary schools. This year they have rebuilt the school in Saadani village - providing a safe and stable environment for children to study in and also sponsors the yearly tuition fees for a growing number of students. Kind guests of Saadani Safari Lodge have donated the majority of the educational material being used.
