The Serengeti National Park covers 12,950 sq km and is located between Lake Victoria, Lake Eyasi and the Great Rift Valley in Tanzania. With more than 2 million Wildebeest and 250,000 zebra, the area is home to the greatest concentration of plains game in Africa and supports more than 30 species of large herbivores and some 500 species of birds. Famous for its annual migrations and wide open plains the Serengeti’s future is not assured as many people living on its outskirts survive on pastoralism and poaching and have few alternative means of making a living. Our support is therefore aimed at alleviation.

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.
