LUMO Community Wildlife Conservancy, the premier conservancy in the Tsavo Conservation area, is home to the historic man-eaters of Tsavo and a transit corridor that provides connectivity for wild animals to freely roam between the Tsavo Conservation Area in Kenya and the Mkomazi Game Reserve in Tanzania. Although the conservancy was established in 2001 and formalized in 2009 through the signing of a Trust Deed between the primary land holdings of Lualenyi, Mramba and Oza, the Taita community has had a long history of co-existence with wildlife, thus ensuring the conservation and protection of this heritage through cultural and social norms, myths and traditional practices. Further, the community has dedicated 66% of their land to formal wildlife protected areas, the Tsavo East and Tsavo West National Parks.
