Tsavo Trust is an action orientated, field-based, Kenyan not-for-profit conservation organisation that works to give the wildlife and people of Tsavo the right to a future.

Headquartered in the Tsavo Conservation Area (TCA), specifically within Kamungi Conservancy on Tsavo East National Park’s northern boundary, we are a team of professionals from the world of conservation and wildlife management, with a long history of living and working in the Tsavo region, and an understanding of its importance to Kenya. The TCA holds significant wildlife populations, both inside and outside the National Parks, including extremely large numbers of high value species – elephant and black rhino (40% and 18% of Kenya’s populations, respectively).

We are working towards protecting wildlife and its habitat as well as promoting community engagement in conservation challenges in the TCA, Kenya. Tsavo Trust is committed to working in partnership with governmental, nongovernmental, community and private stakeholders to attain a shared vision for a sustainable future for the TCA.

Founded in October 2013, we are now at an exciting crossroad in our evolution. Over the next ten years, Tsavo Trust has the remit and appetite to grow considerably, undertaking three targeted and focused work-streams:

Wildlife Conservation Programme

Continuing as a reliable and key conservation partner to the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) through the provision of meaningful aerial and ground support. This relates to not only monitoring and data collection, but also mounting responses to any imminent threats. We will endeavour to create secure buffers bordering the formal Protected Area (PA).

Community Conservancy Programme

Developing and stewarding self-governing, community-led wildlife conservancies within the Tsavo Conservation Area (TCA), including the fostering of partnerships with other organisations already working in support of wildlife, habitats and communities in the Tsavo ecosystem.

Animal Welfare Programme

Developing the Tsavo Sanctuary – a rescue centre for the care, rehabilitation and release of orphaned, injured and sick small mammals indigenous to the TCA. A strong emphasis will be placed on animal welfare and local community education. Importantly, we will ensure that – wherever possible and as soon as they are ready – the animals in our temporary care are given the best possible chance to return to the wild (something that is too often not the case).

Our impact is clear and measurable

No-nonsense, action-oriented and with our eyes always set to the horizon,
the Tsavo Trust is out there making a difference every day.
