Three Tree Hill Foundation

All the staff employed at the lodge come from the local village, Hambrook, which is 8km down the road. Through our Community & Conservation Levy (together with generous guest donations) we are able to fund small (& large) community & conservation projects in the area.
Since many of our guests visit the World Heritage Site (Maloti Drakensberg Park), we also support the community in that area through the Legacy of Grace SA project, started by a guest that stayed at Three Tree Hill.

Spioenkop Game Reserve, managed by Ezimvelo Wildlife, neighbours the lodge property. Guests are privileged to join guided walks in this special 6000ha reserve where rhino, giraffe & zebra roam wild. The fund helps to support various conservation projects in & adjacent to this reserve.

Hambrook Village represents a small, but vibrant portion of the approximately 10 million Zulu people in South Africa, speaking the native tongue of isiZulu. The majority of the working population in the village are employed on local farms & businesses in the Bergville/Ladysmith district, but the unemployment rate is high. Traditionally men would go out and work, with women remaining at home to look after children and maintain the household, but, living expenses have increased, and there are limited job opportunities in the area, so the women in the village have decided to do something for themselves & we are assisting them with their dreams.
