The Local Community


Not only is there a wildlife Sanctuary close to Pambele, but also a significant population base of local people striving to make a living. A local school caters for over 200 hundred children and the vast majority of the population still choose to live in traditional dwellings constructed from various materials including, brick, mud, dung, grass and stone.


The Pambele owner's intention has been to give something back to the people of San Sebastion, to assist them in improving their quality of life and in conserving the landscape in which they live. The Sanctuary is also an 'eco project' with a fundamental objective to achieve light touch development without spoiling the wilderness character of the area.


Pambele supports the local community through both employment and arranging and providing aid in the form of clothing, school equipment etc.
