At Ker & Downey Botswana, we are committed to providing guests the highest quality wildlife and adventure safari experience, whilst preserving the delicate environment and natural beauty of Botswana. We constantly strive to maintain standards of excellence within the industry whilst fostering economic and social development of the local communities and Botswana as a whole which results in Ker & Downey Botswana’s philanthropy project being Bana Ba Letsatsi.
Bana Ba Letsatsi:
As part of its’ social responsibility programme Ker & Downey supports Bana Ba Letsatsi. Bana Ba Letsatsi (which means Children of the sun) is a charity that was established in 2004 with the mission of supporting vulnerable, orphaned and at risk children living in Maun. There are over 200 children on the register; these children are registered as they have either never been to school or dropped out, suffer sexual or physical abuse, are orphaned or lack parental care, beg, work under-age, abuse drugs. For more information please see their website www.banabaletsatsi.org
At Ker & Downey Botswana we are committed to supporting BBL and as such have launched a range of safaris, a percentage of which is donated directly to the charity.

Pack for a Purpose:
You can make a big impact on the lives of children here in Botswana – Ker & Downey Botswana are proud members of ‘Pack for a Purpose’, an initiative that uses available space in your luggage to provide essential supplies to the communities that you visit while on Safari. For 5 pounds (2.27 kilos) you could bring out 400 pencils, five deflated soccer balls with an inflation device, or a stethoscope, a blood pressure cuff and 500 band-aids.
