We are stopping Ivory poaching

Chagga Mzungu and Macho Porini Safaris with sponsorship from Rotary Club Darwin North provided the Mbirikili Village on the border of the Serengeti with an elephant proof granary in the shape of a steel shipping container. Previous granaries have been destroyed by elephant and the year's harvest destroyed leaving the village in famine.

The anger this causes provides the manpower to poach ivory.

Due to the success of the container in protecting the harvest nobody was recruited to poach ivory this year.

Pictured are some of the Mbirikili farmers preparing the container for the coming harvest.

It really is a case of trying to get the right thinking in the right place.


For years Africa has been rushing headlong into its population explosion.


There are now desperate needs to train and to generate the community development needed to balance the needs of people and the needs of Africa's wild life inheritance. 


If we don't do anything your children and certainly your grandchildren will lose our African wild life - once its gone there will be dust bowls and uncontrolled livestock growth that will profit no one least of all the communities trying to fight the violence of poverty and its hand maiden - starvation.


We need to start with community development programs in the very communities that border the national parks, some agencies are doing this but we need a lot more.

We need a change of thinking - the communities need to see and realise their national parks are the farm, the wild life the fruit, and tourism the harvest.


Join us at Chagga Mzungu help us to create the change needed.
