The conservancy concept
Thanks to the human population explosion in the last two decades less and less space in our world is left for wild animals and nature.
Wildlife numbers have crashed and many species are disappearing from their former rangelands.
The “conservancy concept”, for which Gamewatchers Safaris was one of the pioneers in Kenya, is helping to make a difference. It expands the area of protected habitat for wildlife beyond the government-controlled parks and reserves onto new wildlife conservancies, leasing the land from local communities who benefit by receiving rental income and job opportunities for their families.
It is the income from tourism that pays for the conservancies to exist; by coming to Kenya on a photographic safari, visitors can help to give the animals a home in the wilds.

By coming on a safari, visitors are helping conserve wildlife and also providing benefits for the communities whose lands are giving the animals a safe haven.« Back
