Kishugu has over 32 years’ experience in a variety of global landscapes affected by fire. It has done extensive work in protecting, preventing and suppressing wildfire, based on applied research on all aspects of wildfire. For the last 17 years, this expertise enabled Kishugu to successfully implement the South African Governments’ Working on Fire Programme.

Today, it is the primary fire resource responsible for wildfire management across South Africa. The multi-award winning programme is celebrated as the most successful job creation and skills development programme in the history of South Africa.

Kishugu provides all aspects of Integrated Fire Management services to all affected sectors from governments, environmental and military agencies to forestry, agricultural companies to land users, NGO’s, national and multi-national development agencies, industry associations and Fire Protection Associations (FPA’s).

This includes everything needed in wildfire management from aircraft, vehicles, pilots, firefighters, incident management teams to equipment, tools and training.

Our global leadership in Integrated Fire Management is maintained through innovation and investing in people.

Our belief in high environmental and ethical standards is reflected in our core values of accountability, teamwork, excellence and making a difference.

Our specialised management teams are experts in diverse wildfire scenarios, from the grass and peat lands of Asia and South America to the tropical forests of Africa and beyond. We have the experience and capacity to tailor-make wildfire solutions to specific challenges. Kishugu can deal with virtually any wildfire scenario as we have the capacity and resources.


Transform and empower people through excellence in training.


By developing, suppling and implementing Integrated Fire Management Solutions across the wildfire value chain to governments, land users, development agencies and communities enabling effective management of wildfires to save lives, property and the environment.
