Kalama Community Wildlife Conservancy

Kalama Community Wildlife Conservancy protects an area of 16,000 hectares within the 49,800 ha of Gir Gir Group Ranch in the Waso Ward of Samburu East Sub County. The Conservancy also borders the Samburu National Reserve to the south and Westgate Conservancy to the west.

The Conservancy was established in 2002 to draw increased numbers of wildlife into the area by providing water sources and improved security through conservancy rangers’ patrols. The Conservancy was later registered as a not-for-profit company and is a member of Kenya Wildlife Conservancies Association as well as Northern Rangelands Trust.

Key values at Kalama are respect for nature and the Samburu culture, enhancing sustainable peace and security between the neighboring community conservancies, and above all providing a viable environment that can sustain both wildlife and livestock which remain their prime source of livelihoods.
