The Tsavo/Amboseli eco-system is one of Africa’s largest untouched tracts of wilderness, in the southern region of Kenya. In the heart of Tsavo West rears the distinctive Mount Kasigau, the last of the Eastern Arc range of mountains. Here, the Taita Discovery Centre has been developed as a community & conservation resource.
The goal is to preserve this unprotected area of Tsavo as a vital wildlife corridor linking the Tsavo/Amboseli eco-system, reducing human-wildlife conflict and providing hands-on solutions for the local communities here. Projects include building education and health facilities, micro-enterprise initiatives, anti-poaching efforts and promoting sustainable eco-tourism.
