We need your help!
Responsible tourism funds Mara Naboisho Conservancy, a community-based conservation partnership in Kenya’s Masai Mara. The abrupt loss of tourism due to the COVID-19 pandemic is devastating for the people and wildlife that depend on Mara Naboisho Conservancy. That’s why we’re coming together, from afar, to support Mara Naboisho Conservancy through the COVID-19 crisis.
613 Maasai families receive a monthly financial lifeline from Mara Naboisho Conservancy, bringing tangible, shared benefits to more than 5000 people.
In return, an area the size of 1.9 million tennis courts (50,000 hectares) is dedicated for the protection and free movement of wildlife.
Naboisho means “Coming Together” in the local Maa language and the conservancy was created on the promise that wildlife and humans can not only co-exist, but thrive. 10 years later, the once overgrazed and fragmented land is now a safe haven for elephants, cheetahs, leopards, and has one of the highest densities of lions in Africa.
