Ewaso Lions Fund-Raising Trip

Suggested itinerary as an indication of what can be arranged any time to suit you.

Day 1

Dinner and overnight in Nairobi.

Day 2

Morning flight from Nairobi to Samburu. Drive to a luxury tented camp close to Ewaso Lions HQ. Shivani Bhalla the founder and Executive Director of Ewaso Lions will join you for lunch in the camp.




Shivani & Kura










This afternoon visit Ewaso Lions HQ. This is a simple base camp where Shivani and her small team of dedicated lion conservators live. Ewaso Lions has a comprehensive approach to protecting lions and Shivani and Jeneria will explain how they conduct their field research, monitor lions and work with the local Samburu people, including the Kids Camps.  Later enjoy game drive looking for wildlife in the vicinity. Although outside the protected area of the Samburu Reserve, Westgate has the same ecosystem and so you will be looking for ‘northern’ specialities including Grevy’s zebra, reticulated giraffe, Beisa oryx and Somali ostrich, as well as lion, leopard and elephant. If you are lucky you might catch a glimpse of aardwolf.

Day 3 & 4

Two days understanding and experiencing the core of Ewaso Lions work – putting people at the heart of lion conservation, this will include visiting a local Samburu village, and attending the Mama Simba school, a bush walk with some of the Samburu Warriors and a game drive in Samburu National Park.

The Samburu, like the Maasai, are nomadic herders and live in traditional dung and mud huts within a boma-enclosure. Their lives have changed little and each village has a chief and their wealth depends on the number of cattle, camels, sheep and goats they have. Hopefully you’ll see the younger herder girls returning from a day out in the bush with their goats, sheep and cattle. Visiting a local village will help you to understand the way they live and how Ewaso Lions works with the different members of these communities.

Ewaso Lions initiated Mama Simba school and Warriors schools utilising local community schools at weekends. The ladies have now set up their own school.

Parasaroi LemantaanThe women in the local communities are often overlooked and marginalised, so the school provides a valuable programme that educates and empowers Samburu women. You’ll see first-hand the Mama Simbas being taught new skills and crafts that can help them earn a living.

Eawso warriorAfter circumcision young Samburu men become ‘Warriors’ and leave their villages to become men. They graze their cattle further afield and protect their cattle by killing lions. Ewaso Lions has changed this and has successfully created a peer-to-peer network of Samburu Warriors who now serve as wildlife ambassadors and first responders to lion conflict. warriors-surveying-Tony-Allport[1]
