The Foundation

TIMBO AFRIKA FOUNDATION was founded in 2009 and named after a young boy, Tim Weerstand, who passed away that year after having suffered an aggressive form of cancer. Tim was passionate about Africa, Wildlife and the people involved in protecting that same wildlife.

Albert Hartog, a long time investor in Africa and passionate about wildlife as well decided to set up TIMBO AFRIKA FOUNDATION in commemoration of his nephew and support projects related to the protection of wildlife in Africa if and where possible in combination with helping young people build up a future in the wildlife economy.

The Foundation operates primarily in Botswana and South Africa but also raises funds directly for support of cancer research in The Netherlands.
