Honeyguide’s major goal is that communities surrounding wildlife in Northern Tanzania protect and benefit from the rich wildlife around them. WMAs benefit locals the most and our plan for the next five years is to establish Randilen WMA and Enduimet WMA, our two projects as strong models of Tanzania community-based conservation.
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.

What we do
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. Improve the management of their natural resources. Develop new enterprises. Educate young people and adults. With such an integrated approach to locally led conservation, Honeyguide envisions a Tanzania in which communities and wildlife will benefit from each other’s existence and thrive for generations to come.
Where we work
Honeyguide focuses on large landscapes, including transboundary ones, of northern Tanzania, such as the famed Amboseli-Kilimanjaro, Serengeti-Mara, and Tarangire-Manyara. As wildlife disperses outside of national parks, Honeyguide primarily supports initiatives on community lands, such as in Wildlife Management Areas and critical migratory routes. Yet, in partnering with the Tanzanian government and many other like-minded non-profit organizations, we promote a comprehensive ecosystem and partnership approach to community-based conservation.
Strive in steadfast support of communities to manage their natural resources, to strengthen their livelihoods, and to conserve wildlife across vast landscapes through partnerships and long-term commitment.
Honeyguide is working with local communities to provide simple solutions to human-wildlife conflict. Through the innovative use of basic tools and materials, Honeyguide’s Human Elephant Conflict Toolkit is enabling communities to live peacefully alongside elephants,
