Tangulia Mara is owned by Maasai, a factor you do not find with many camps. It’s wholly owned and managed by the local people.

What motivated us to start Tangulia Mara?

We were motivated to start this camp to show the community of our people that there way of life should not revolve around cattle only, for many years we have not seen the potencies that lies at our door step. We are opening the doors to show others that community conservation will be meaningless if done by outsiders. It’s where we get our name from Tangulia, which means lead.
