WHAT WE STAND FOR AND WHY

As a company that was born from its love of wilderness, we take responsibility for its protection.

The Nomad Trust works on three main areas of focus; Conservation, Education and Health. Our in-house team work alongside our camp folk to run initiatives of our own, as well as use our influence to generate awareness and support for projects that are strongly aligned with our core Nomad values. 

 

We know that without an active involvement in conservation and community improvement, as well as a commitment to sustainable management of Tanzania’s wonderful wildlife and habitats, our children won’t have the same pleasure and privilege we've enjoyed all these years.

conservation

In everything we do we work hard to protect our wild Tanzania from harm. We firmly believe that tourism practiced properly is a driving force in conservation and this belief has dominated our business practice from the beginning.

education

Education is the key that unlocks a brighter future. By supporting schools, bringing deserving students on safari, and providing scholarships and internships we spread our influence beyond the bush and into the classroom.

health

Adequate healthcare is available in few remote communities. Our camps occupy some of the most far-flung corners of the continent so we're able to bring doctors and medication to communities that otherwise would go without.

What we have achieved

Here are some of the highlights of the work done by the Nomad Trust over the last season.

 

6 TONNES

We have donated over $10,000 towards the removal of six tonnes of snares collected within the Serengeti. This vital program is making a serious dent on the illegal trapping and poaching of wildlife in one of our most significant ecosystems.

60 CHILDREN

This season over 60 deserving children have worked hard for a place on our student safaris as part of our 'Watoto Go Wild' initiative. They went on safari, had conservation lessons, career guidance, and heaps of fun with our superb Nomad guiding team.

5000 PEOPLE

We've hosted thirteen community conservation films in local villages which reached over 5,000 people with vital environmental and conservation themed messages.

1000 BOOKS & 80 DESKS

80 classroom desks have been donated to the local primary school we support in Katumbi. Class sizes are a huge challenge for rural schools. Donating desks helps ensure that children can learn in comfort and can concentrate on their lessons. 1000 books have been purchased ready for two new library hubs in Katavi. Learning resources are a major challenge in remote schools, and can really help boost a child's performance and education.

OVER 150

For many years we have run nursery morning porridge "Meal-A-Day" program for more than 150 children in Katumbi, near Greystoke Mahale. For these children this is their most important meal of the day and is vital in their early development.

8,500 TREES

We've supported a team who have planted 8,500 trees as part of the ‘Green Mpimbwe Campaign’ around Katavi National Park.

4 OPERATIONS

As part of our health outreach program, four children from remote villages were flown to Arusha to receive reconstructive surgery at The Plaster House.

15 EX-LION KILLERS

Fifteen ex-lion killers join the new village ambassador group in one of the communities of Katavi. The group act as community conservation ambassadors, helping to deter lion-killing traditions that are considered a show of strength and bravery.

639 GOATS & 38 COWS

Building bomas that will protect 38 cows and 639 goats from predator attacks. Boma fortification really helps mitigate lion attacks on livestock in village around Ruaha.
