Naibunga Central Community Conservancy is 11509.5 ha in size. It is a community owned conservancy which comprises the three community lands of MUSUL, KIJABE & NKILORITI. These communities, in the spirit of conservation, came together and decided to form the conservancy under the auspices of wildlife conservation, community development and protection of both humans & their property.

The community is majorly pastoralist in livelihood and lives side by side with wild animals. The Conservancy has 14 employees with 12 being community scouts/rangers headed by a conservancy warden and two being administration roles, with the manager being the overall conservancy head. The manager is reporting to a Conservancy Board of nine members drawn from the three community lands.

The Conservancy was registered in the year 2004 and operates under the patronage of the Northern Rangelands Trust (NRT), a non-governmental organisation located in northern Kenya. Among the major livelihood earning activities for the Conservancy members are pastoralism, operating small shops within the Conservancy, bee keeping, practicing subsistence farming and youth operating boda boda business.

In the spirit of conservation, the Conservancy would like to continue partnering with likeminded organizations in the bid to promote conservation and protecting the endangered species within our landscape.
