Community awareness: The approach is community based where education and awareness is key.The ability to ensure sustainability of community efforts towards its empowerment is our final goal. This is best guaranteed by self-reliance and dependence on oneself; and on the utilization of the available community resources for the benefit of all.

Community Development


Wildlife security: Our teams of rangers go on patrol on daily basis with various tools of work.The conservancy has been divided into 6 patrol blocks where they patrolin pairs, with a radio call handset, a GPS unit,binoculars, data sheets andat least a gun in a pair. They report to our base radio their patrol location for the day, and in the evening they report all their sightings, conflicts if any, any carcasses and the general security.

Monitoring: We use the data collected for monitoring purposes and decision making, we also have key wildlife species that need special attention according to their conservation status like Grevy’s zebra, elephants, wild dogs, eland, giraffe and this key species are reported daily.
