TOGETHER WE MUST PROTECT OUR WILDERNESS

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

Nomad was founded on the belief that for us to make a meaningful contribution to the conservation of our wildlife, we must also take care of the needs of our people, making sure that it is them that feel the benefit from keeping wild places safe. In a normal season we put our safaris to work. We make use of our reach and logistics; planes, cars, camps and teams, to reach deep into some of the most remote parts of Tanzania with health and education outreach. We donate safaris to auctions to raise funds, all of the proceeds from our camp shops goes to our projects, and all of this is managed by a full time CSR Manager and supported by our camp teams. This all, for the moment, has had to stop.

 

While we are in lockdown, our wild places are quietly facing their own crisis.

 

As a community who love Africa's wilderness, we must urgently turn our attention to the pressing issues facing our National Parks, wildlife, and remote communities. We need your help to make sure we have a wilderness for us to return to when this is all over. We all have a responsibility to look after it, as well as the people whose lives are so intertwined with its protection.

 

We've set up a fund.

 

Asante sana, thank you, for your support.

It means the world to us and we can't wait to have you back on safari with us soon.

We need your help...

to make sure we all have a wilderness waiting for us when this is over.

What we have achieved

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

 

48,644 SNARES

We have donated over $10,000 towards the removal of 48,644 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.

400 CHILDREN

Since 2017 we have hosted over 400 local school students on Nomad safaris and in Nomad camps. The groups go on game drives with our guides, have conservation lessons with leading experts, and tour around camp gaining career guidance from all the different departments. Not to mention heaps of fun with our superb Nomad guiding team.

3,500 EYES

With camps in remote parts of Tanzania we are well placed to be the eyes and ears of health organisations that otherwise couldn’t afford to access these areas. To date we have supported 2,000 people receive eye treatment; 98 cataract surgeries; prescribed 700 pairs of reading glasses; and educated 3,500 people on eye care.

60 BEE-KEEPERS

We’ve funded 60 participants through week-long apiary training, donating 10 community beehives and all the necessary tools to get them going. This is also alongside 120 community members trained in composting and organic farming techniques to help improve yield for local villages as well as protect the fragile ecosystems on park boundaries from the use of harmful chemicals. Another 15 have been trained in poultry keeping, providing them with stock, vaccines and feeds, and helping them set up small businesses that supply high quality chicken to our camps. Many of these farmers now supply our camps with fresh produce which is a win- win outcome, providing our clients with delicious fresh produce and local farmers and their families with a planet-friendly source of income.

100 FOR MEALS A DAY

For many years we have run nursery morning porridge "Meal-A-Day" program for more than 100 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.

6 PHOTOGRAPHY TRAINING TRIPS

Since 2019 we’ve fully funded and run six trips into nearly all of our camps. Eight aspiring wildlife photographers have participated, generating fantastic imagery, as well as a series of Swahili wildlife films produced for distribution especially amongst communities in human-wildlife conflict areas to promote conservation.

67 OPERATIONS

As part of our Plaster House outreach program, over the past two years 500 children have been screened across Tanzania, with 80 children now on surgery schedules and 67 having received successful operations.

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.

A meaningful pursuit

We firmly believe that tourism practiced properly is a driving force in conservation. So grab a cuppa and have a read of our e-magazine. It's about all the good things we've been up to, thanks to you.
