Noloholo Environmental Center

Noloholo Environmental Center

Our headquarters, the Noloholo Environmental Center, is a top-notch education facility. The only center of its kind in northern Tanzania, Noloholo consists of classrooms, meeting spaces, program offices, guest cottages, dining and kitchen facilities, staff housing, a dormitory, and outdoor learning spaces. Noloholo serves as an important resource and meeting space for conservation organizations, local communities, and government authorities in the region.

Located just outside the border of Tarangire National Park on land donated by a Maasai community, Noloholo’s 10-acre campus operates on 24-hour solar power and utilizes rainwater harvesting. Our structures straddle the line between indoor and outdoor spaces, providing comfortable yet progressive areas where people from all places —local and international—gather to further APW's work in conservation.

Living Walls are environmentally-friendly corrals that keep livestock safe from predators. To build a Living Wall, community members plant a circle of trees that serve as posts for chain-link fencing. As the trees grow, they add height to the wall and create an impenetrable barrier. Living Walls prevent livestock attacks by large carnivores with a 99% success rate.

Seminar Space

Warriors for Wildlife are community-led teams that prevent human-wildlife conflict across five programmatic areas. Team members guide the installation of Living Walls, collect real-time data about conflict events, and help locate lost livestock at pasture.

Guest Cottages

The Northern Tanzania Big Cats Conservation Initiative helps to preserve some of Tanzania’s most threatened big cat populations. Because lions, leopards, and cheetahs move widely outside of protected areas, community support is essential to saving these endangered species.

“I am a widow. My cattle were staying with my neighbors because I didn’t have anyone to care for them. Now that I have a Living Wall, my cows can come home because they are safe.”
