We hope that these programmes inspire the young people of the area to be active conservationists and enable them to make the changes that are needed to sustain livelihoods, preserve wildlife and protect the physical environment long into the future.
To further reduce contempt for wildlife within the local community specifically that of elephants, Absolute Zambia Safaris helps to strengthen chili program as a means of mitigating human-elephant conflict. Farming along the Luangwa River and its tributaries adjacent to the national park is increasing, despite the apparent fighting with elephants. Efforts to convince farmers to grow uneatable crops such as chili as an alternative crop to maize and vegetables are slowly affecting. Absolute Zambia Safaris also helps designed the chili farming project so that the purchase of chili by Absolute Zambia Safaris directly linked to farmers who are using the chili fence and chili blasting techniques as a mitigation method. The chili is then sold on to Rivonia Farms in Lusaka who commercially produce chili sauce products.
Absolute has made close ties and links with many scientific research organizations, and individuals worldwide. To help them by offering logistical support and practical advice for scientific, archaeological and paleontological research in the area.
