The name “Karingani” comes from the local Changana language, meaning “storyteller”. The storyteller is traditionally at the heart of each community, maintaining tradition and passing wisdom and culture from generation to generation.
This story is now entering a new chapter as we create a narrative of sustained conservation success. Our narrative will be woven from three strands; people, wildlife and conservation as depicted in the Karingani logo.
The purpose for Karingani was derived from four conservation visionaries, who could see the potential to establish an extraordinary program that would protect the unique biodiversity that Karingani offers.
