African Parks is a non-profit conservation organization that takes on direct responsibility for the rehabilitation and long-term management of protected areas in partnership with governments and local communities.
We are facing a conservation crisis in Africa. Some of the planet's most spectacular species are being lost, but we are working to protect them.
We have the largest counter-poaching force in all of Africa for any one NGO. Our 850 rangers provide safety for both wildlife and people.
For protected areas to survive in the long-term, local people need to value them, and derive benefits from the park’s existence.
Tourism & Enterprise
Visiting the parks is critical to their survival, and tourism and other enterprises contribute to local and national economies.
Management & Infrastructure
We create infrastructure to deliver good park management benefiting both wildlife and local communities.
