Grumeti Fund

Contributing to the conservation of the Serengeti ecosystem for future generations

Slide background

Grumeti Fund

The Grumeti Fund is a non-profit organization carrying out wildlife conservation and community development work in the western corridor of the Serengeti ecosystem in Tanzania. Our vision is a world in which people and wildlife live together sustainably, forever.

Today 165 dedicated staff protect, manage and monitor Grumeti’s concessions where the near-barren plains of 15 years ago teem with wildlife once more. Their passion and commitment are driven by a history and led by a mission.

Our Work

As pristine parts of the world continue to shrink in the face of rapid population growth, the Grumeti Fund – in conjunction with our Tanzanian partners – is actively involved in preserving 350,000 acres of previously neglected Serengeti wilderness. Through active conservation management, collaboration with local communities, technological innovations and the deployment of well-trained boots-on-the-ground, we are affecting tangible change and sustainable results.
