Tuli Backline Fence
We believe that the future of the Tuli wild-lands depends on meaningful and sustainable partnerships with communities and tribal authorities. Due to the substantial financial support of owner Albert Hartog and the Timbo Afrika Foundation, we are constantly engaging with the local communities to find equitable solutions to wildlife conflict created by elephant and predators causing problems outside the reserve.
For the first time the Botswana government, in cooperation with the department of wildlife & national parks have managed to close an entity to upgrade 30km of the Central Tuli backline fence close to Mathathane village with a fully electrified game proof barrier. This is the first public private partnership in the area.
The fence will offer long-term protection of agricultural areas and benefit local farmers, the key to sound sustainable relationships in support of conservation and eco-tourism.
