WILDLIFE CONSERVATION & SOCIAL UPLIFTMENT
In partnership with Open Africa for sustainable tourism
75% of Kenya’s wildlife is outside National Parks. Amboseli National Park covers only 10% of the entire ecosystem of the Amboseli basin – that means 90% of Amboseli’s ecosystem is outside the protection of the park, on private Maasai Land. It was these figures which led to the brainchild that is Kitirua Private Conservancy. In order to protect vulnerable ecosystems, Maasai landowners need transparent and regular revenue – hence, the fruitful partnership with Cheli & Peacock was born, and in 1993 Tortilis Camp was established.
Tortilis Camp became one of the first “eco-lodges” of its kind in East Africa with numerous initiatives geared for a greener future. Additionally, under the guidance of Cheli & Peacock, the Camp is persevering toward a future of sustainable tourism for the benefit of the local communities.
Kitirua Conservancy is a community conservancy covering over 30,000 acres, and serves as a vital corridor for the wildlife between Tanzania & Kenya. The Camp has played a vital role in ecological conservation and management of the area, and among other things has helped restore the Acacia Tortilis woodland area – a project close to its heart, as its namesake suggests. This expanding woodland area is one of the few remaining bio-diverse areas in the Amboseli basin. Read more
