Naibunga Conservancy is the collective effort of nine Maasai group ranches in the western region of the Mukogodo Division in Laikipia. Community members realised the need for conservation efforts in the area as increasing numbers of people and livestock coupled with persistent droughts were severely damaging the rangeland. The ranches came to the agreement that by combining land and natural resources, their cattle, wildlife, livelihoods and collective rangeland stood to benefit. The official Naibunga HQ was opened in April 2015.
