About Us

Cruiser in Laikipia

Kenya Wildlife Trust was established in 2007 by leaders in the Kenyan safari industry, with the principle aim of strengthening the connection between conservation and tourism.

Our activities have mostly focused on providing funding to a variety of conservation and community development projects in key wildlife areas. In 2013, we moved into project implementation with the establishment of our own flagship lion and cheetah monitoring projects in the Maasai Mara, now consolidated as our Mara Predator Conservation Programme.

Lions in long Mara grassAs Kenya’s principal predator conservation trust, we understand critical conservation needs across the country and can create tangible, strategic links between wildlife research, monitoring and conservation efforts.

Through our grant-making portfolio, we are committed to funding projects across three of Kenya’s most important ecosystems - the Greater Mara, Laikipia/Samburu and Amboseli/Tsavo.
