HUNTING GIVES VALUE TO THE WILDLIFE AND THE LAND THEY INHABIT AND HUNTING CLIENTS CONTRIBUTE DIRECTLY TO HABITAT PRESERVATION AND LONG TERM SURVIVAL.
Tanzania’s wildlife conservation depends on hunting to a great extent for its long-term survival. Tourist hunting provides revenue to the Wildlife Division for conservation and anti poaching in remote areas that would otherwise be unsupported as most hunting areas are remote and unsuitable for photo-tourism.
Revenue from hunting directly supports the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism. Funds raised from hunting are directly used in the management of wildlife and its habitat. Hunting inadvertently gives value to the wildlife and to the land that they inhabit and this value transforms into habitat preservation and acts as a deterrent against poaching.

Community development is also an important part of our management program. We support village communities that border our hunting concessions by funding projects of their choice, such as the building of schools, the building of medical facilities, provision of solar powered electricity and the drilling of water wells. Hunting clients contribute directly to these causes.
We also work hard on educating the local villagers of the value of wildlife. We embed in them the importance of the preservation of wildlife, which directly results in the continuation of hunting and the guaranteed enrichment of their communities. Local villages bordering our areas are able to see the benefits of hunting and actively participate in the preservation of our wildlife.
Our Tanzania safari companies, Old Nyika safaris and Safari Royal Holdings, are committed to supporting the Government of Tanzania in its endeavours to protect the fauna and flora of this country for future generations. Throughout the year we provide and fund anti-poaching patrols, by offering fuel, food rations and manpower for regular anti-poaching exercises.
We are proud to work with and have the support of Conservation Force.
