Above all, Honeyguide delivers results on the ground. We are field people. We have a core team of more than 50 committed individuals (all Tanzanians) and support and guide more than 100 rangers and officers in six wilderness areas covering 1.3 million acres. Our team ranges from veteran anti-poaching commanders to tech-savvy recent university graduates, from future women leaders and entrepreneurs to Maasai elders and warriors. Together, we have an absolute united commitment to produce real outcomes, to implement long-term sustainable programs, and to strengthen community-owned conservation initiatives.
Honeyguide runs community-based conservation initiatives across 1.3 million acres of wilderness in Tanzania. We empower communities to… Protect wildlife and habitat. Prevent human-wildlife conflict.
