Social Responsibility

Where ever possible we endevour to assist those in need throughout Namibia. With the help of donations from not only our guests, but also the local business community, we have been able to create change for those that are living below the poverty line and struggling with things that those in the first world often take for granted. We aim to improve living standards, which in turn, we hope will empower people to work hard to better their own lives and that of their children. If you wish to help us, please email us, as every little bit goes a long way towards making life a little easier for those in need.

Chameleon Safaris ethos has always included the need to be socially responsible in all areas of our business including economic, social, and environmental practices.

Pack for a Purpose and help local communities. Save space in your suitcase by bringing needed supplies for endorsed projects.

The Epikiro Life Line Clinic offers free primary healthcare to the San Bushman community in far east Namibia. To address issues of tuberculosis and malnutrition, the clinic provides accessible healthcare through clinic-based services and outreach programs using a 4x4 ambulance. This is especially important as many San communities are remote and cannot access the clinic directly.
The Home of Good Hope is a soup kitchen in Katutura, Windhoek that helps poor and vulnerable children, street children, and orphans. Founded in 2007 by Namibian Monica Imanga and Canadian nurse Eileen Green, it's a lifeline for children in the Goreangab area, providing 380 children with a daily meal Monday-Friday. The Home of Good Hope is also a community hub offering clothing, basic health, hygiene items, and educational support. This meal is often the only source of nutrition for these children and is essential for survival due to malnutrition and vitamin deficiencies.
Power Pad Girls raise funds for sustainable menstrual pads for Namibian school girls to reduce missed school days. They combat this problem through fundraisers, workshops, and awareness campaigns on sexual and reproductive health. Contact them to help empower girls and improve the quality of education, ensuring that every Namibian girl can receive equal education.
