Improve and Secure Land Under Conservation

TTWCA supports the conservation of the admirably diverse wildlife found in the Tsavo landscape: from the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino and the largest population of the African Elephant in Kenya) to multiple endangered and endemic species, such as the Taita Thrush that exists nowhere else on earth.

The landscape also provides crucial wildlife corridors for Kenya’s largest national park: the Tsavo National Park, comprising Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks. 

Focus Areas

We see strong linkages between secure land tenure and long-term investment in natural resource management.

The TTWCA wildlife programme aims to address the existing land tenure security issues in the Tsavo landscape in a quest to foster long-term investment in conservation and promote conservation as a viable land use option the following two overarching focus areas: Establishing Conservancies and Capacity Building.


The Wildlife Programme supports the local community to increase land under conservation management by helping them:

  • Secure land titles and communities to transition to community land
  • Establish well-run conservancies that deliver tangible livelihoods and biodiversity benefits


The programme strives to continuously improve the capacity of the local community to spearhead conservation efforts and deliver enduring conservation impacts across the Tsavo landscape.
