Westgate Conservancy -Campsites, Community Conservancy

Westgate Conservancy forms part of the patchwork of community conservancy land in the heart of the northern rangeland area. Most NRT conservancies are home to a number of endangered Grevy’s zebra, which is only found in the north of Kenya and parts of Somalia. Herds of up to 500 can be seen scattered across the rugged plains of Westgate, as they use this corridor to get from Mpus Kutuk, Nasuulu, Samburu and Kalama to the vast northern territories of Namunyak and Sera. Westgate conservancy was initiated by the owners of Ngutuk Ongiron Group Ranch, who realized the importance of conserving the Grevy’s zebra, as well as a sustainable rangeland for the Samburu and their livestock. Today, Westgate stands as one of the most successful NRT conservancies, and is frequently visited by other communities who want to see community conservation in action.
