Amboseli Ecosystem Trust

Amboseli Ecosystem Trust (AET) is a not-for-profit umbrella organization that brings together the local community, governmental, conservation and developmental stakeholders in the Amboseli Ecosystem to drive collective action and innovative collaborations for the wellbeing of the people, wildlife and habitats of the ecosystem. Recognized as a UNESCO Man and Biosphere Reserve, the Amboseli Ecosystem covers over 1.3 million acres of land in Kajiado County, Kenya.

Our Programmes

Uniting wildlife conservation and community elevation efforts in the Amboseli Ecosystem. We execute this ambitious pursuit through our four overarching programmes

AET’s socioeconomic programme focuses is driven by the appreciation that sustainable conservation can only be attainable if the community is actively involved as partners and derive tangible socioeconomic benefits. 

AET’s tourism programme seeks to support the local community to tap into the landscape’s influx of local and international tourists to develop income-generating tourism products and services

AET’s natural resources management programme seeks to tackle these massive threats though three focal areas: the ecosystem plan, community rangers and improved human-wildlife coexistence.

AET works directly with the bona fide community leaders through community umbrella bodies such as the Amboseli Tsavo Group Ranches Conservation Association (ATGRCA) and the Amboseli Tsavo Community Rangers Association (ATCRA) to execute its institutions and governance programme.

Over the last decade, we have secured 1.3 million acres of critical land
