The Tanzania National Parks Authority, commonly known as TANAPA, is responsible for the management of Tanzania’s 17 national parks with the main goal being to conserve and manage the wildlife of these areas. TANAPA is a parastatal corporation, meaning it is owned and controlled partially by the government, all of TANAPA’s income is reinvested into the organisation in order to further support conservation efforts. TANAPA also fund training for rangers as guides as well as the maintenance of these parks’ roads, gates, boundaries, and airstrips.
It is a great honour to be recognised for the work we do, especially by such an esteemed partner. If you would like to see more of what we do to make a positive impact on the areas where we have our camps, visit our Positive Impact page.
