Contributing to Community Development is our main focus area in caring for the destination. Livingstone Guest Farm is part of the community: we employ staff from the village, we buy their vegetables, building materials like crushed stones and sand and various requirements from the local markets and shops. We are implementing a special project to support the poorest people in the community through a unique public-private partnership: the Social Cash Transfer Scheme. On a monthly basis the neediest households are getting a certain amount of money to care for their basic needs in health, education and nutrition. Revenue generated from organizing village tours is returned to the community for their benefit. Our guests mingle with members of the local community to experience their way of life in farming, cooking, dance, music and sports. The Lodge has been built with a minimum interference with the natural vegetation and a network of footpaths allows our guests' to experience its great natural diversity from river valley, rocky outcrops and upland forest. We have qualified tour guides to introduce our guests to the beauty of the farm and natural environment of the Livingstone area.
