We are now a 501c3 non-profit and contributions are now tax-deductible. Our EIN # 47-3562921

​We also have ongoing installations in the Loliondo area of Tanzania, including the areas of Wasso and Ololosokwan, and eventually hope to install lights in other areas of Tanzania, where human/wildlife conflict is prevalent. We have also installed lights in Randelin, Endulin, Sinya, West Kilimanjaro, and recently Ruaha National Park area. We have lights on almost 300 bomas now!


We are attempting to honor the warriors on both sides of the conflict: the lion warriors and Maasai warriors—by creating a peaceful resolution between the two parties.

These lights also work with leopards, as in Philipo’s village, hyenas, and even elephants, keeping them out of fields filled with produce.

With human populations increasing, there is more pressure on wildlife because of habitat loss, and the availability and ease of catching livestock. As a result, lion and leopard populations have decreased drastically in the last 20 years. We can’t imagine a world where the only lions and leopards are in zoos, so we are doing our best to help preserve them, and preserve the pastoralists lifestyle as well.

HELP BY DONATING TODAY

For $500.00 you or even a group of friends can adopt a boma. Remember when you saw your first lion? Was it in a zoo, on TV, or on safari? When did your love for these magnificent cats begin? Often, the intersection of man and wildlife creates dangerous and irreversible results. How can you be a part of the solution?

What We Do

What We Do

​​We travel the Tanzanian countryside, installing lights where they are needed to help rural communities protect their livestock in an effort to eliminate the retaliatory killing of predators.

Adopt a Boma Program

​How We Do It

​​​We install solar strobe lights on the enclosures (bomas) where domestic animals, produce, and livestock are kept at night to repel all sorts of predators. The strobe lights disorient lions and leopards and chase them away.​

Tanzania Lion Illumination Project believes that adopting a boma will help to protect livestock, lions and leopards, and the people who build the bomas by keeping the predators at bay and by giving the families who have to live with them a connection to the outside world. It will also give you a view into the culture of the pastoralists and hopefully enrich both of your lives.


If you or a group chooses to adopt a boma, names and photos of the families using it for livestock will be sent to you, and they will be given your names as donors of lion lights. Hopefully a cultural exchange can occur which will benefit all involved. You can donate by using PayPal, or  



We are dedicated to mitigation of human/ wildlife conflict.

We install solar strobe lights on the enclosures (bomas) where domestic animals are kept at night, which helps repel all sorts of predators. The strobe lights disorient the wildlife intruders and chase them away.

We have installed lights on almost 300 bomas and are constantly setting up more . The area of Piyaya needs 100 bomas done as soon as possible!!!
