OUR MEMBERS

The Taveta Wildlife Conservancy Association (TTWCA) brings together 33 ranches and conservancies across 1 million acres to improve livelihoods while protecting and preserving one of Kenya’s most iconic and inspiring landscapes: The Tsavo ecosystem.

The TTWCA membership is diverse, comprising both ranches and conservancies of varying sizes, from the smallest of about 94 acres (Chalongo) to the largest of approximately 106,000 acres (Lualenyi).

Currently, the TTWCA members are in various stages of formation (established, operational, proposed or emerging conservancies) as per the requirements of the Wildlife Conservation and Management Act 2013 (WCMA).

Ecosystem
