By Epimark Lastone – Tanzanian Positive Impact Co-Ordinator A philosophy we hold close to our hearts is that of actively supporting local communities and finding ways to ensure these communities have the opportunity to empower themselves in the most positive way possible.

The Calving Season has officially started! The migratory herds are scattered throughout the waterholes of the Ndutu area, Naibatat Hills and the open plains of the western side of the Albida.
