Field patrol equipment, such as boots, good tough backpacks, 2-man tents, socks, portable solar gear, rechargeable torches, GPS, Blackview cell phones, all make up the kit that is needed by Ranger patrol units that traverse the thick bush of the Zambezi Valley regularly each and every day and month of the year.
Thick Zambezi jesse bush, and harsh rocky conditions underfoot mean that these items need regular replacing and to this end, Tashinga Initiative seeks ongoing funding to meet these requirements.
One particular donor, Jim Green Footwear of South Africa, committed to providing outstanding quality leather boots to Rangers in Africa and to date, has provided 260 pairs of boots to patrolling rangers across the Mid-Zambezi Region. Tashinga Initiative is proud to have been able to facilitate and participate in this donation from Jim Green Footwear and Game Rangers Association of Africa, with one round trip to all field stations being more than 1,000km.
However, top of our list right now are backpacks! Please get in touch to play your part in conserving our Protected Areas.
