A healthier L.Tanganyika Eco-system

"In a nutshell, we had a fantastic and very memorable safari experience in Tanzania thanks to Nomad Tanzania, Festo, and all the other people we interacted with. We will enthusiastically recommend your company (and Festo) to our friends and family when they are considering a vacation in East Africa." Moynihan group, November 2013
Contact Us About A healthier L.Tanganyika Eco-system

A growing human population is putting pressure on livelihoods and the environment surrounding Lake Tanganyika and the Mahale Mountains National Park, and affecting the well-being of the people.

The Nature Conservany's Tuungane Project, meaning 'let's unite' in Swahili, is an integrated approach to promoting a healther relationship between people and the natural resources they depend on in the Lake Tanganyika and Mahale Mountains area. 

Sitting on Nomad’s doorstep, we value both the human and wildlife local to this area and work to support a better more conducive relationship for both. The greater Mahale ecosystem is a fragile one and faces pressure from its resident human community, who are themselves threatened by extreme poverty and a rapidly growing human population.

With the aim of improving the well-being of this diverse natural environment and its people, some of the underlying problems are being tackled, from health and sanitation to environmental awareness and education. TNC has developed ‘Model Households’ where volunteer families educate by example, showing sustainable behaviour and practices that can be replicated by others in their villages. Beach management units have also been established to enact and enforce sustainable fishing regulations, and microfinance loans available give the opportunity to diversify away from environmentally damaging activities and into other income generating activities.

We feel these interventions are critical to the future of this area and we're keen to support TNC's work here.
