Conservation Fee & Local Community


Project description

Guests at Saruni Rhino pay a conservation fee ($175 per day per person) during their stay, which also includes one daily rhino tracking session and is goes directly back to the community providing them with a livelihood through tourism revenue for the first time. This agreement gives them an incentive to keep the land pristine, undeveloped, unfarmed, unfenced, allowing the wildlife to roam free. The Rhino Sanctuary project is a pioneering example of how local communities can play an active role in and contribute to the protection of the biosphere of their land.

This project contributes to the following Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda
