Community

The Lodge was developed on the site of a former farm, and although construction of our lodge only commenced recently, we have patrolled the river since 2002, with staff recruited from the local villages to discourage dynamite fishing. We have specifically worked with the local community and village hierarchy to provide employment for the inhabitants of the area and they now form the backbone of the team at Vanghat. A percentage of the rod license is donated to the village fund. Through community involvement with this project, we have eliminated both poaching and bombing from our section of the river, which had led to a drastic improvement of the fish stock. The wildlife diversity has expanded significantly as a direct consequence of this approach, and now includes otters and turtles, which have not been seen for many years.
