Karingani Game Reserve - ACCF - Wildlife Ranger Challenge 2023
ACCF is taking on the Wildlife Ranger Challenge to raise awareness of the vital role our 81 rangers play in protecting Mozambique's Karingani Game Reserve, and supporting an estimated 180 livelihoods.
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, is a celebration of solidarity, connection and camaraderie for the ranger profession. culminating on 16th September 2023, the campaign raises vital funds for Africa's biodiversity guardians.
ACCF - Karingani Game Reserve is a privately managed 150,00ha game reserve situated in Southern Mozambique, in the heart of the Greater Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Area.
At Karingani, our rangers secure the territorial integrity of Karingani Game Reserve for the ultimate purpose of restoring the reserve to be an ecological expansion of the Kruger National Park (South Africa), into Mozambique. Karingani Rangers are responsible for 73km of international Kruger fence in an area of Mozambique that was historically attributed to over 75% of the rhino poaching incursions into KNP. Key activities include patrolling, gathering and reporting environmental data, and minimizing incursions into Karingani, and thus Kruger, safeguarding both reserve’s rhino populations.
Support from the WRC to date and in 2023 aims to assist Karingani to support our rangers in providing training - through the development of skills, motivation will be improved - along with the purchase of equipment for the K9 unit support team.

Wildlife rangers operate on the very frontline of conservation across Africa, routinely making personal sacrifices to put their lives on the line to protect the continent’s magnificent wildlife and habitats. Yet they are so much more than just law enforcement officers: rangers are teachers, community support workers, mediators, researchers and so much more. Unfortunately, resources are not keeping pace with the scale of the challenges they are trying to tackle. For the fourth year running, the Wildlife Ranger Challenge sets out to redress this, by raising critical funding to cover operating costs, including salaries and equipment, for over 10,000 rangers. This will help them protect threatened wildlife and some of the continent's most vulnerable areas, while also protecting communities and securing coexistence with wildlife, as well as providing for their own families.
