The African Parks Network is an African solution to Africa's conservation challenges. It is the first private park management institution in Africa that takes on the actual long-term management responsibility of parks, in public-private partnerships with Governments, by combining world class conservation practice with business expertise. We place emphasis on the stimulation of responsible tourism and associated private enterprise as a mechanism for achieving financial sustainability of the parks as well as providing a foundation for sustainable economic development and poverty reduction.
In just six years, African Parks has taken on responsibility for the management of 7 protected areas in five different countries, covering a total area in excess of 2,500,000 hectares.
