Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya

Safeguarding the Future of Northern White Rhinos at Sanctuary Tambarare

In the idyllic landscape of Laikipia, Ol Pejeta Conservancy emerges as a bastion of hope for the world’s last two northern white rhinos. This vital refuge is more than just a sanctuary; it is a firm commitment to the protection and preservation of a species on the verge of extinction. Ol Pejeta is home not only to these two individuals, but also to more than 165 critically endangered black rhinos. Equipped with highly trained squads and international collaborations with veterinary experts, the conservancy embarks on a mission that goes beyond the numbers. Poaching and the 97.6% decline in the black rhino population between 1960 and 1990 are challenges that Ol Pejeta faces with solid measures. Since 1993, its black rhino population has grown from 20 to more than 165, thanks to successful breeding programs and anti-poaching operations.

Singita, Tanzania

Connecting Conservation with Communities at Sabora Tented Camp

In the vastness of Tanzania, Singita stands out as an unwavering advocate for conservation. At Sabora Tented Camp, it’s not just about preserving wildlife; it’s a story of active engagement with local communities and leadership in anti-poaching initiatives. Singita not only restores and protects unique fauna and flora, but also forges strong ties with neighboring communities. From early childhood education programs to academic scholarships, digital learning opportunities and support for local business development, Singita goes beyond conventional reserves. In addition, as custodians of over 141,600 hectares in the Serengeti, their partnership with the Grumeti Fund has been transformative. Its successes include the remarkable recovery of many species, such as buffalo, wildebeest and elephant populations. From tackling poaching to species recovery, its impact extends far beyond the borders of the Serengeti.

Wilderness DumaTau, Botswana

Human and Feline Coexistence

In the heart of Botswana, Wilderness is committed to writing a new chapter in the relationship between humans and lions at its DumaTau lodge. This distinctive project highlights the importance of a harmonious balance between local communities and wildlife. Working closely with the CLAWS Conservancy, the initiative seeks not only to reduce human-lion conflicts, but also to foster peaceful coexistence. The early warning system implemented has achieved significant subscription in local communities, pointing to the success of this approach. In addition, Wilderness leads the wildlife-friendly beef initiative, promoting safe community grazing practices that protect both cattle and lions. This is an innovative model that demonstrates that low-impact tourism can have high-impact results.
