BALLY VAUGHAN GAME PARK / MWANGA LODGE PUBLIC STATEMENT
Dear Friends of Bally Vaughan,
We make the following statement in response to numerous calls from the public, who have been concerned to hear rumours that we are closing down, or moving:
· BALLY VAUGHAN BIRD AND GAME SANCTUARY IS NOT MOVING.
· The operations of Bally Vaughan Game Park, which include Mwanga Lodge and the Bally Vaughan Bird and Game Sanctuary, are NOT MOVING, CLOSING DOWN OR RE-LOCATING.
· Bally Vaughan Bird and Game Sanctuary has been a part of our wild life operations for 20 years, and it will remain where it is with its precious animals, fully functioning as a service to the public and conservation, for years to come.
· Bally Vaughan Game Park was founded and established by Robin and Kathie McIntosh in the early 80’s. Over the years the McIntosh’s stocked a large assortment of wild life (22 species) into the main Bally Vaughan Game Park, and then built Mwanga Lodge in the park to cater for guests on safari. In the early 90’s they also built a specialised sanctuary in one corner of Bally Vaughan Game Park for orphaned and endangered wild animals: this was named the Bally Vaughan Bird and Game Sanctuary.
· This sanctuary is still in the family, and the running of the Bally Vaughan Sanctuary will ultimately revert to one combined operation for the whole of Bally Vaughan Game Park, under Kathie McIntosh’s daughter and son-in-law, Debbie and Gordon Putterill.
· We have some exciting new refurbishments and developments planned for the Sanctuary.
· Mwanga Lodge and Bally Vaughan Game Park continue to operate as normal, with Day Safaris, and Overnight accommodation, conferences, special functions, weddings, birthday parties and school trips on offer.
· We are only 45 minutes from central Harare on the excellent Shamva tar road.
· We can be contacted at the following numbers: Reservations 04-776341 or 0772 300 935, or at the Lodge direct 0773 061 075, 0773 066 775 and 0772 226 854.
