Midlands Conservancy

The Midlands area of Zimbabwe lies in the heart of the country, well away from any dangerous border zones. The area consists of privately owned bush and farmland with the Manyati river to the north and the Sebakwe river to the south. It is near the country town of Kwe Kwe, which is on the main Harare to Bulawayo road.

Fifteen farmers in the Midlands area of Zimbabwe have joined together to form the Midlands Black Rhino Conservancy. The total land area of the Conservancy is 85,000 hectares. The conservancy supports nearly 6 black rhino integrated with cattle grazing and game utilisation. Each farmer has taken down his internal game fencing and made a contribution to the costs of security and protection against the poachers.
