In the African Plains, Keeping People in Balance with Nature The Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust protects and sustains the local community

In the 280,000 acres surrounding Kuku Group Ranch in Kenya is the meeting place of three national parks (Amboseli, Tsavo, and Chyulu). With Mt. Kilimanjaro as the backdrop, you can watch elephants, lions, and if you’re lucky, even a black rhino roam freely. This is the hallowed ground of which Hemingway wrote in The Green Hills of Africa, and there are more than sixty kinds of mammals, over 400 bird species, and at least 1,000 types of trees and shrubs.
