African Parks Network

African Parks Network


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.
