Claws Conservancy

“Jumbo Junction has been essential for the growth and development of our community based conservation program on lions in the Okavango.

Not only are we now housed at Jumbo Junction, but their staff provide the necessary support to keep us going. Greg and Sue Flaxman in particular have knowledge of the area, community dynamics and the network to get things done and organised in a remote part of the country.

In return we share what we’ve learned with staff and guests to enhance the tourist experience with firsthand knowledge about the specific animals they may see during their safari.

Having local wildlife experts on hand is a tremendous advantage to understanding the lion populations that range throughout the region and the efforts to conserve the cats and support the communities living among them.”
