Why is Qambathi and FREEME Wildlife partners 

Not many people know this but when Stephen and I considered moving to South Africa we really wanted to set up a lodge in a big 5 game reserve as we were passionate about creating a safe place for wildlife. Big 5 may get all the attention but it's all wildlife big as well as the small that create the perfect balance and harmony in nature. I can't remember how we became aware of FREEME Wildlife but we knew we needed the guidance and help in running our small reserve. We invited Tammy and Wade over a couple of months after taking over Qambathi and their passion and raw unbroken principles in what is the right way to manage wildlife, the sheer knowledge and commitment they have to all animals, well that was just music to our ears. It did not take us long to try and think of ways we could get involved and help support an amazing organisationn such as FREEME Wildlife
