Introduction:
From cruelty to beauty, these trees are hand-crafted in Africa from snare wire collected by anti-poaching teams in game reserves. Show your support for wildlife conservation with every purchase.

These unique trees are made from snare wire which was collected by anti-poaching units from various game reserves in Zululand, South Africa. As part of one of our previous YOUbuy, WEgive projects, we have created something beautiful for you to purchase from something which was intended to harm wild animals indiscriminately.

Support for the SnareTree initiative through The Safari Store has seen these beautiful trees shipped around the world, gracing the homes and offices of global wildlife- and Africa-lovers in a number of different ways. Whether buying it for yourself or as a gift, the iconic shape of these trees are reminiscent of African landscapes and are evocative of blissful days on safari. By purchasing a wire snare tree, you are part of an African conservation project which has supported a local craftsman, prevented poaching activity, and supported de-snaring in South African reserves.

Why Acacia trees? They represent Africa. They are always present on safari and are often the only trees around to provide shade for the animals.

About the Wire Acacia Trees:
• The snare wire was collected from game reserves in Zululand by members of our team and delivered to Simba, the craftsman who turned them into art.
• The wire was heated on a fire to clean it and to make it easier to use.
• The wire was then worked by hand and with a pair of pliers to create the trees.
• The final product was boxed and shipped, with the proceeds providing an income for Simba during the tenure of the project.

Product note
• Every wire tree is unique and so may vary in size from tree to tree. All sizes and dimensions quoted are an estimate.
• The wire used in the creation of these trees is collected from the bush and has been exposed to the elements and so will often not be shiny wire. The rusted colours add to the overall character of every tree.
