Jilobi and Mhlumeni community project, Mhlumeni and Jilobi, Eswatini

The Mhlumeni community is running the Mhlumeni Bush Camp – a community-owned and -run tented camp that started operating in 2016. The camp is situated on community-owned land within the Lubombo conservancy; it was started as part of an engagement to get communities participate in biodiversity conservation and tourism initiatives for the development of their community. The camp is situated on a gently undulating plateau atop the high biodiversity Lubombo mountain landscape overlooking the Mhlabashana gorge. It also has magnificent views over the Mozambique coastal plains on the East and the Mlawula Nature Reserve on the West.

The Jilobi community is located south of Siteki. Jilobi is running a community forest conservation project that involves three traditional communities that are working together to conserve the common forest and develop ecotourism activities and other livelihoods around the forest communities.

Both communities are located in close proximity. Interns will work with the various activities of both community projects.
