Welcome to West Gate Community Conservancy
West of Samburu National Reserve is this amazing conservancy – its thorny acacia scrub is home to several thousand Samburu people and a healthy, and growing, population of large mammals, including up to 500 Grevy's zebras. As in Samburu, the Ewaso Ngiro River flows through the conservancy and is the focus of interest for the area's wildlife. However, most of the animals here are much more jumpy and elusive than those in the reserve proper. Regardless, this conservancy is a brilliant example of how conservation and the needs of local people can facilitate each other.
Note that the conservancy is only accessible if you are staying at Sasaab Lodge; the conservancy's fees are included in the lodge's nightly rates.
