A Brief History

We are one of the only Timber flooring companies in the world that grows, harvests, manufactures and installs our floors.

Our vertically integrated supply chain allows us to ensure our products are of the highest quality, and more importantly, that our timber is sustainably harvested from our very own forestry concession in Zimbabwe.

 

It also means we can ensure that our world class timber is impeccable and our prices unbeatable.

Pride of Africa is a family run business which was established in 2003 and currently exports Rhodesian Teak flooring and decking to 8 countries across the globe.

We pride ourselves in quality, excellence and sustainability in all we do

Sustainability

We strive to ensure our forests grow and thrive!

It is vitally important to us that we protect our forests for future generation and we do so by following strict procedures and protection policies when harvesting our trees ensuring that only trees of a certain size, that aren't reproducing may be harvested.

 

We also follow special regulations that quote a certain amount of trees per 100square meters, therefore after harvesting the area remains dense.  

As well as following these regulations we drop seed balls which are seeds from our trees, rolled in clay and ash, creating a perfect place for saplings to grow. These balls are hand made by the locals in return for payment and therefore saves the future forests of Zimbabwe while empowering the people
