Mavima is a former chairman of the Zimbabwe Association of Tour and Safari Operators.

Travel Now Tours and Safaris and Wilderness Camps have been partners for six years.

Mavima and Brian Dzimwasha are the original owners of Linkwasha Camp and they have now been appointed to the board of directors of Wilderness Camp.

Wilderness Camps owns and operates eight luxury camps in Zimbabwe’s national parks to the north of the country.

These include Makalolo Plains, Giraffe Springs and Linkwasha.

Wilderness Camps plays an important role in the conservation and management of the parks in which they operate.

In 2003 they were awarded the World Legacy Award for Nature Travel by National Geographic Traveller and Conservation International.

In the same year the American Society for Travel Agents recognised Wilderness Camps’ outstanding achievement in the preservation and protection of the environment by naming the company the ASTA Environmental Award winner of the year.

Mavima said they would spread their business to the Far East including China.
