Elewana Tarangire Treetops provides essential toolkits to deter elephant crop raids

Operating in some of the most biodiverse areas on the continent, the Elewana Collection willingly embraces its responsibility of protecting the wildlife in the surrounding habitats and working with local communities to ensure human wildlife conflict is reduced.

Elewana Tarangire Treetops is located in a private Wildlife Management Area (WMA) called Randilen. We are proud to be one of the largest contributors to the conservation projects of Randilen WMA, administered by the Honeyguide Foundation.

This month toolkits were provided to the community, providing protection for 23 Village Scout teams across 8 villages surrounding the Randilen WMA. The kits consisted of top of the range high powered solar charged LED flashlights, loud air horns, chilli bombs and as a last resort roman candles. The toolkits have proved hugely effective as a deterrent to elephant crop raids, which is why this is the third consecutive year Elewana Collection has provided financial and logistical support to this project. We were delighted to help secure match funding from Golden Triangle Asian Elephant Foundation for the toolkits again this year.

All guests staying at Elewana Tarangire Treetops will be actively supporting the hard work put into the WMA and the Wildlife Warrior programme administered by the Land and Life Foundation – helping maintain and conserve this beautiful and valuable landscape renowned as one of the best dry season elephant refuges in East Africa.
