What is Conservation South Luangwa (CSL)

Conservation South Luangwa (CSL) is a local NGO formed in 2003. The hallmark of CSL’s success is Zambian-led conservation through employment, training and empowerment of communities. The organisation largely supports community scouts from the surrounding chiefdoms and is one of the biggest employers in Mambwe.

Under the leadership of Rachel McRobb and Benson Kanyembo, and in collaboration with Zambia’s Department of National Parks and Wildlife (DNPW), CSL has grown into an internationally recognised and award-winning conservation organisation. CSL is dedicated to three main areas of focus: extensive support for anti-poaching initiatives alongside DNPW (including the employment and training of community scouts, provision of equipment and rations, transportation for patrols, aerial support for anti-poaching and monitoring, and the operation of a K9 dog unit); wildlife rescues and community veterinary work, and human-wildlife coexistence programmes. CSL also coordinates the annual Conservation Fun Run, a community sports event attracting close to 6,000 attendees each year.

"Remote Africa Safaris has been a staunch supporter of CSL for over a decade providing financial support through LCCF and critical logistical support for wildlife de-snaring. Without the support of the tourism industry in South Luangwa, CSL would simply not be where it is today.”

Rachel McRobb - CSL Director
