From classic wildlife safaris to conservation activities, every decision made, revolves around the core ethic of protection of African wildlife, land, and surrounding communities. These values have become an intuitive part of the way that I operate and, increasingly, part of the reason why my guests find their experience with so rewarding.
By working with leading conservation partners Lewa Wildlife Conservancy & Lion Landscapes, it is possible to offer guests exclusive wildlife experiences on the frontlines of conservation. By Sponsoring a Wildlife Conservation Activity, you are given the opportunity to work alongside rangers in the field.
Either of these conservation missions would make an exception addition to your safari experience. Enquire on the safari form.
SPONSOR A RHINO NOTCHING MISSION
Ear-notchings are preformed for rhino monitoring & DNA collection. It ensures that rangers can accurately identify & report daily.
Sadly the illegal killing of wildlife continues to plague the continent, putting immense pressure on conservancies & other wildlife areas with rhino (& elephant) populations. As an exception however, Lewa's efforts in identifying individual rhinos, gathering of intelligence, increased use of technology, staff motivation & most importantly, greater investment to our neighbouring communities paid off & the conservancy has not lost a rhino in four years.
By sponsoring a Rhino Ear-Notching not only do you get to experience a ‘once in a lifetime’ event, but you also contribute to the conservation, & furthered protection, of these incredible creatures.
SPONSOR A LION COLLARING MISSION
Using lion collaring technology to help restore coexistence, and provide a basis for ongoing lion research to reduce human-lion conflict.
Collaring For Co-Existance is a very immersive way to get involved in Lion Conservation. Long term research has shown conflict between lions & people can be effectively managed by collaring & monitoring movements, & giving livestock owners access to real time lion movement data.
The biggest threat to lions is that they have been exposed to large numbers of poorly defended livestock, and lions that have never killed livestock have started to view livestock as prey.In short, an alarming number of Laikipia’s lions have developed a dangerous habit - people whose livelihood is threatened by lions often respond by killing the lions.
