We believe that the best, most effective and most immediate way to help both the conservation of wildlife and the interests of the communities who own the land where safaris take place is to visit us. Through the payment of the conservation fees – money that Saruni collects on your behalf and then transfers to the Masai and Samburu landowners we work with – you finance conservation and you give the communities a tangible incentive to protect the wildlife, the flora, the land. Making nature a profitable business is an important way to ensure its long-term survival. Your presence at Saruni also creates jobs (80% of our staff come from the communities), creates income for Kenya Revenue Autority through the taxes we pay and provides Kenya with a balanced perspective on development and modernisation, which can continue without damaging its amazing natural resources.
However, if you are interested in making a special contribution to many of the projects we are involved in (bursaries for students, equipment for the rangers, meetings to build consensus among community leaders, infrastructure for the conservancies) please contact us by writing to Saruni’s CEO at firstname.lastname@example.org.
