Kenya’s Community Conservancies are a sustainable model of wildlife conservation and a benchmark for tourism. Many of you have appreciated the biodiversity and the variety of species supported by these protected lands first-hand, returning year after year to get your safari fix from the hills, luggas and plains that have become your own back yard. 25% of our revenue funds the guardianship, protection and maintenance of 250,000 acres of the finest wildlife habitat in the world, but since the global collapse in tourism, that funding has sharply declined.
Without your support, the ever-lurking menace of poaching, bush-meat hunting and encroachment cannot be kept at bay. Currently our Conservancies of Mara North, Olare Motorogi, Mara Naboisho and Ol Pejeta need you more than ever.
Nature never halts is a common phrase but if threatened, it just might.
Kicheche and our neighbouring communities are working tirelessly on a plan for the next year, to ensure our conservancies remain secure and intact despite the dramatic drop in tourist arrivals.
We are initiating the Conservancy Guardians appeal, concentrating solely on covering critical conservancy costs: rangers salaries, welfare and medical, predator monitoring and patrol costs.
Credit the Conservancy
This scheme assists us in underwriting conservancy land leases for a year, so the priceless conservancy birthright remains intact. By paying a conservation contribution of $750 (or more) to us now, you will receive a credit of the SAME value on your next Kicheche safari.
Kicheche has been at the vanguard of these Conservancies since inception and in this moment of need is backing them wholeheartedly. We will ride this out together, as we have always been in this for the long run.
A heartfelt thank you..
.. for the many who have generously contributed to our appeal. It is a big task but with your help we will succeed. Almost a thousand acres are now protected for a year. One camp cannot protect it all but every acre is priceless.
