Our Story

Rangers are Africa’s unsung heroes. They hold diverse roles as conservationists, teachers, community support workers, leaders and much more.

The Wildlife Ranger Challenge, organised by Tusk and Game Rangers Association of Africa, is a celebration of solidarity, connection and camaraderie for the ranger profession. Culminating on Saturday 21 September 2024, the campaign raises vital funds for Africa's biodiversity guardians.

Situated in a wide rift valley in eastern Zambia, the South Luangwa National Park stretches over 9,000 km2 of largely intact wilderness. The Luangwa Valley ecosystem is home to the country’s largest population of elephants, leopards, and wild dogs, and is one of 10 remaining lion strongholds on the continent.

Although South Luangwa supports a wide variety of species, poaching remains a significant threat. CSL practises a multi-faceted approach to wildlife resource management and protection, working in collaboration with Zambia's Department of National Parks and Wildlife, and alongside local partners and stakeholders in the Luangwa ecosystem, to implement human-wildlife coexistence programmes, anti-poaching ground and helicopter patrols, aerial surveillance patrols, sniffer dog detection and tracking activities, wildlife rescues and community veterinary work.
