Due to the simplicity and low cost of snares, snaring is a favoured method by poachers. The Serengeti National Park (SNP) runs its own de-snaring programme. With assistance from the Frankfurt Zoological Society and tour operators in the Serengeti, one 8-man team operates in the SNP. Between April and October 2017, 7 331 snares have been removed – showing just how pervasive these snares are.
From December 1st 2017, Wild Frontiers will donate 1 USD per bed night at all our camps in the Serengeti. We don’t cut corners when it comes to our guests, and we don’t compromise on protecting the environments in which we operate. By choosing to stay with us, you will be contributing significantly to the Serengeti’s de-snaring programme.
