Tarangire National Park spans 2,850 square kilometers (1,093 square miles) across northern Tanzania below the Rift Valley escarpment. Famous for its giant Baobab trees and vast herds of elephants, Tarangire National Park offers a variety of unspoiled landscapes, which are home to a variety of wildlife. The Tarangire River runs through the park and acts as a permanent water source that attracts game from surrounding areas and causes the park to feature one of the highest densities of wildlife per square kilometer during the dry season. Unfortunately, growing livestock populations together with unregulated agricultural expansion are increasingly encroaching into the Tarangire ecosystem. Unchecked, these pressures leave the future of this dry season wildlife refuge and the greater ecosystem of Tarangire unknown. With your help, it is possible to improve the prospects for the ecosystem and the communities living within it.
Asilia Giving - Projects IN TARANGIRE
OTHER AREAS WE SUPPORT
We take an area approach towards improving livelihoods and protecting nature in some of the most unique corners of Africa. The areas we support include 6 uniique geographic regions across East Africa — the Greater Mara, the Serengeti, Tarangire, Rubondo Island, Matemwe, and Ruaha. In each of these areas, we engage with local communities, authorities and partner organizations to support projects and initiatives that address some of the key long-term challenges, priorities and measures for a given area.
Asilia believes that tourism should make a lasting positive impact on both nature and people. Proviging area support to local communities and the environment is an integral part of Asilia's identity and vision. Asilia maintains multi-year relationships with local communities, provides concrete educational support to 16 primary schools and offers funding to carnivore conservation and research throughout East Africa. Collaborating with partners on the ground, Asilia's goal is to make a real difference.
