Planting 1000 Trees To Combat Climate Change on World Day

CCI has planted 1,000 indigenous trees in Zululand, the first step in creating a CCI Forest.  The trees were planted at Loziba Wildlife Reserve, supporting job creation, conservation of our environment and encouraging reforestation.  In addition to the environmental impact, this project will also be creating employment for 10 previously disadvantaged young people (70% of whom are female).  As such this project contributes to 7 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.

The tree planting project was undertaken in partnership with Amanzi Ethu (an NGO focused on improving water quality) and Project Rhino who are developing the wildlife reserve in partnership with the local community.  The reforestation site is situated within Loziba Wildlife Reserve, a new rewilding project partnership with communal and private land at Gluckstadt in the Abaqalusi and Ulundi districts. The reserve is one of sheer beauty and is proposed to be a new Big 5 Tourism product in the future. More broadly the project is in line with climate restoration, job creation, water and environmental sustainability. It is a solution that looks at job creation on a large scale in every community, the restoration of our catchments, public-private partnerships, and data gathering on river health and basic services for the benefit of civil society.

CCI offers world class customer experience solutions that derive true value for clients and their customers.


Project Rhino was launched on World Rhino Day, 22 September 2011. It is a rhino-focussed association that brings together a provincial government conservation body, private and community-owned reserves, rhino owners, leading conservation NGOs and anti-poaching security specialists in the common aim of fighting wildlife crime.


Amanzi Ethu Nobuntu came about in 2021, first as the flagship project of the UEIP, and in due course as a legal entity that operates as the project delivery arm of the partnership. The UEIP is a partnership representing environmental interests across the entire uMngeni Catchment in KZN, and was formed to collaborate and co-ordinate environmental efforts.
