Tanzania’s Loliondo land dispute – CBC The World This Weekend

Loliondo borders Serengeti National Park, Tanzania’s number one tourist attraction, famous for its abundance of wildlife and a crucial migratory path. A Loliondo game controlled area was established by the government in 2009. Earlier this year, the government announced it wants to take 1,500 square kilometres of this land to convert into a wildlife corridor. This would prohibit the Maasai’s cattle from grazing and accessing water.

The land in Loliondo is currently being used by a Dubai-based game hunting company. The story aired Saturday, Aug. 31 on CBC radio’s The World This Weekend. To listen to the TWTW podcast, click here.
