Mark & Angela Sprong

Mark and Angela were the founders of the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre and Mark is still the Chairman of the Trust.  Angela was the chair of the fundraising committee which was instrumental in raising much needed funds and awareness in the early years. They made significant financial contributions through their company, Land & Lake Safaris and assigned the land on which the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre is based, over to the Trust. What initially started as a local wild animal rescue facility has now matured into an influential and principled conservation organisation that influences the country.
