Grumeti Fund works to maintain, build and strengthen close relationships with all relevant government, conservation and local community stakeholders that operate within the Serengeti ecosystem, thereby enabling us to effectively carry out our work.  Specifically, we work in partnership with Singita, who hold the concessions on the land we manage; the Wildlife Division of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism; various district and regional government authorities, local village councils and an array of other government entities and non-profit organizations.

Judicial Engagement

The justice system is critical in working to curtail wildlife crime and other illegal resources extraction. Grumeti Fund Relationships Department works closely with the local magistrate court, public prosecutors and the government’s regional anti-poaching unit.


Human-Wildlife Conflict Mitigation

The Relationships Department plays a key role in addressing human-wildlife conflict. Based in a village on the boundary of the protected area the Human-Wildlife Conflict Mitigation Unit works closely with the Operations Room to prevent and combat incidents of human-wildlife conflict occurring in nearby areas.

Key Serengeti Ecosystem Partners

The work we do here at the Grumeti Fund could never be accomplished alone. Luckily, we are supported by intrepid Tanzanian partners who share our vision.
