Kenyan wilderness reborn: Samburu warriors lead conservation renaissance

In the heart of Kenya’s Mathews Range, John Leripe, a proud Samburu warrior, gazes upon his transformed ancestral homeland. Decades ago, rampant ivory poaching devastated the region, wiping out elephants and rhinos. But hope emerged with the birth of the Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy in 1995, spanning 850,000 acres.

Today, prosperity shines as the community reaps rewards from conservation and ecotourism, with yearly earnings of £175,000. Wildlife thrives, with 6,000 elephants, giraffes, leopards, cheetahs, buffalo, and impala making a triumphant return. This success story not only safeguards nature but also empowers the Samburu people with education, healthcare, and a brighter future.
