OTHER AREAS WE SUPPORT
We take an area approach towards protecting the localities we operate. They are the Greater Mara, the Serengeti, Tarangire, Rubondo Island, Matemwe, and Ruaha. We look at what it will take to ensure the long-term survival of these areas and we’ve identified two key areas of intervention: education and conservation
We recognise that we cannot ensure the future existence of these magnificent ecosystems alone - that we need to collaborate with all stakeholders and visionaries, namely, governments, non-governmental organisations, and the private sector, which includes our guests, our staff, local communities and anyone interested in the survival of the land upon which we all depend.
