About this book

The vast migrating antelope herds of the Serengeti converge in the Ngorongoro for the wet season grazing and calving. This is an exploration of the problems that have arisen between the Maasai pastoralist groups, that have grazed their herds in the region for thousands of years, and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The perceived problems of joint land-use conflict are examined as well as the ecological facts and possible management solutions.
