Our vision is that the Zambezi Valley, in its entirety, will one day be a safe environment in which elephants and other wildlife can thrive, for the benefit of Zimbabwe and global biodiversity.

Our Mission

The Zambezi Elephant Fund (ZEF) works collaboratively with the Zimbabwean government, NGOs and the private sector to develop, implement and manage

  • Anti-poaching operations
  • Field equipment and supplies for rangers and support teams
  • Anti-poaching ranger training
  • Conservation security planning and implementation
  • Information systems and networking
  • Technology and systems for anti-poaching operations

The Zambezi Elephant Fund (ZEF) works to actively protect elephants in the Zambezi Valley, Zimbabwe by putting a stop to poaching and developing and putting in place systems that ensure the long-term safety of these incredible animals and the security and growth of other wildlife in the area, together with the protection of the environment and the improvement and sustainability of these efforts.

The Zambezi Elephant Fund recognises the importance of involving and supporting local communities – and projects are in place already that can be further supported by the Zambezi Elephant Fund.
