Livingstone Backpackers is owned and run by African Horizons who begun operating safaris in Zambia 10 years ago and was the first budget operator to run safaris in Botswana. From humble beginnings we have grown consistently and are now one of Zambia's leading budget tour operators with 3 lodges, two safari companies and various adventure activities in Zambia.
Community Projects and staff empowerment
African Horizons is actively involved in staff empowerment. Many of our guests comment on the quality of our staff. They are our greatest asset and many have worked for us in excess of 4 years with the longest serving 8. Our staff turnover is very low and a family atmosphere has been created that adds tremendously to our reputation.
One of the most basic wants of the local people is to own land. It gives stability to the family. A place to hand down through the generations, nurture children, grow crops, run a business. It provides security. To this end in 2004 Timothy Phiri, our longest serving employee became the first recipient of a plot of land in Livingstone on which to build his house. We are actively engaged in Land procurement for other staff and hopefully one day will have empowered all of them with this fundamental human requirement, a place to call home. Community
We are involved in a number of community projects. Last year we raised over US$2000 for a local school . We sponsor a local youth football team, the police regatta team, local fund raising events and an annual day out for orphaned children on World tourism Day. We also sponsor Independence day celebrations.
