Il Ngwesi Wildlife Conservancy is a community-managed property area of 8,645 hectares in Mukogodo Division, Laikipia District, north of Mount Kenya. It is mostly made up of a semi-arid and arid savannah area and is located near to the Ngare Ndare River on the edge of the Mukogodo Hills. The ranch is owned and maintained by the almost 7,000 Laikipiak Maasai pastoralists who live nearby. The white rhino (Ceratotherium simum), African elephant (Loxodonta africana), African wild dog (Lycaon pictus), and Grevy’s zebra (Equus grevyi) are all found in the area, as well as the critically endangered black rhino (Loxodonta africana) (Diceros bicornis). Through the conservation of roughly 80% of the ranch area, a reduction in the Maasai’s reliance on livestock, and the development of conservation-friendly ecotourism, the Group Ranch has been able to promote conservation and offer income-generating opportunities for its members.
