The Grumeti Fund values external partnerships and knowledge-sharing. By developing opportunities with sector specific experts we can increase the positive impact on the ground.  From key government stakeholders to anti-poaching technology developers and enterprise development professionals, we are proud to call the following organizations and companies our Impact Partners.

“Singita is a conservation brand that has been preserving African wilderness for the past 25 years, offering guests an exceptional safari experience with 12 luxury, award-winning lodges and camps across five regions in Africa.  In partnership with non-profit funds and trusts who implement strategic conservation projects in each region, Singita is preserving and protecting pristine land and wildlife populations, and helping to create economic independence within local communities surrounding the reserves.”

For this, TAWA collaborates with local communities and other national and international stakeholders so that present and future generations of Tanzanians, as well as the global community can benefit.”

“African Conservation and Community Foundation’s mission is to contribute to the preservation of wilderness areas, as well as to empower the communities living alongside these spaces, contributing to a world in which people and wildlife live together, sustainably, forever.”

“Tanzania Wildlife Research Institute contributes significantly to the work that the Grumeti Fund is doing to care for wildlife and implement research projects such as elephant collaring.”

“The Seattle-based organization continues to be a key partner of the Grumeti Fund. Using technology to enhance conservation practices on the ground has transformed not only the way the Grumeti Fund operates but how conservation is carried out across Africa.”

“The Grumeti Fund partners with the South African business incubator to provide business support for budding entrepreneurs, offering them a platform that fosters learning, and guidance that can be translated into business success.”

“In 2019 EWT conducted two poison management courses for team members from Grumeti Fund, TAWA and TANAPA, educating them on the identification, response and prevention of wildlife poisoning in the Serengeti.”

“The Grumeti Fund’s sister project in Zimbabwe holds and shares invaluable knowledge on black rhino monitoring best practices as well as game capture and immobilization, all of which has proven critical to work carried out in Grumeti in 2019.”

“The partnership with Concordia Language Villages commenced in 2017 and has grown annually, educating more students and teachers each year.

“Over the last three years, the relationship between the Grumeti Fund and the Wittemyer Lab at CSU has been an integral part of the successful elephant collaring program, with CSU advising on collaring best practices and study design, as well as collaborating on novel assessments of elephant crop-raiding patterns and behaviour.
