Kilitome Conservancy is a 24km2 area that forms an important part of the wildlife corridor that connects Amboseli to the Chyulu Hills and Tsavo West National Parks. It is one of seven conservancies managed by the Amboseli Land Owners Conservancy Association (ALOCA). The border between Kilitome and Amboseli is unfenced, allowing wildlife to roam freely. Because of the abundance of wildlife in this area, it is a popular tourist destination. The land is leased from Kilitome landowners by AWF and Tawi Lodge, with tourism revenue covering the lease fee as well as conservation activities. In addition, as a deterrent to poaching, Tawi Lodge funds a community scout program in the conservancy. Ultimately, the Kilitome Conservancy hopes to provide secure and sustainable wildlife-based land use, as well as a key wildlife corridor, while reducing pressure from illegal wildlife trade.
