Projects in Tanzania

By making bold, and often pioneering, investments into ecologically and economically vulnerable regions, we aim to turn these areas into viable conservation economies, benefitting both the local communities as well as the environment.

We acknowledge that people and nature are inseparable partners, so we work closely with communities, authorities, NGOs and industry partners to achieve the best possible long-term outcomes for all concerned. With the help of our guests, who contribute a levy of US$5 for each night they stay with us, we’re able to make the most significant positive impact toward our goal of empowering these areas, including the communities and wildlife that call them home.
