Promotion on the Crater

08 April 2021

Great news from KopeLion… “Rumas Olelekipa, the Ilchokuti (aka lion guardian) sponsored by Nomad Tanzania, was promoted to be the Coordinator of his area. This entails supporting 3 Ilchokuti in the north western side of the crater, an area that is now extremely volatile for lion and livestock conflict since 5 year old collared male from Ndutu, Laipangwa settled in the area with 5 females from the Lakes pride in the Crater and their 9 cubs. Rumas is dedicated to the role he plays within his community and is a well-respected and popular figure and we are delighted that he has accepted more responsibility.”

The Nomad team is extremely proud of our local lion guardian.
