Community Livelihoods


The local communities play a vital role in the effective, long-term success of land and natural resources management.

Focus Areas

The TTWCA Livelihoods programme focuses on ensuring that the local community derives direct livelihood benefits from conservation-related enterprises across the Tsavo landscape. 

The programme supports the local community to design and implement ecotourism enterprises on a scale that delivers environmental and social-economic benefits, while protecting the biodiversity of the landscape.

In addition to tourism-based enterprises, including culture tourism, the Livelihoods Programme also supports the community to grow nature-based enterprises such as, beekeeping, vermiculture, aloe vera farming, establishing tree nurseries, and sisal farming.


The programme promotes the development of livestock value chain and markets.

It also supports hay production for internal and external consumption.
