13 year old Chiwila Mulenga from Chalilo school in Sereje district, on his first safari in Kasanka National Park. "They [the animals] are very free and I didn't expect them to be as free. I thought they would be un-free."  Local schools and women's groups are regularly brought into Kasanka, which is unique in the country and unusual in Africa as it is privately managed and owned by a trust. People are able to see animals flourishing in land which was once free reign for poachers. Combined with anti-poaching scouts, the education programme is on the frontline of conservation methods in the park, showing local people wild animals in their natural habitat.
