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. We are creating something beautiful for you to purchase from something which was intended to harm wild animals indiscriminately. All proceeds from the sale of the trees then goes back to the game reserve for use in de-snaring programmes, which in turn is made into SnareTrees to sell. The Safari Store covers the costs of collecting the snares and pays a portion of the profits to our in-house wire artist, Simba, to turn the snares into trees.

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. In contributing to conservation initiatives with each purchase, you are doing your part to preserve the precious wildlife which we are privileged to observe on safari.


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 is collected from game reserves in Zululand by members of our team and delivered to Simba, the craftsman who turns them into art.
• The wire is heated on a fire to clean it and to make it easier to use.
• The wire is then worked by hand and with a pair of pliers to create the trees.
• The final product is boxed and shipped, with the proceeds providing an income for Simba and funds for our YOUbuy, WEgive conservation initiatives.

I have just received my order of the Snare Trees, they are awesome, such a great initiative. These are going to make the most amazing corporate gifts. I have also kept one as a centrepiece on my dining room table. Thank you The Safari Store for the prompt and excellent service.
