Abstract

This paper examines Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) since its establishment in 1959 to 2019. Methodology employed in this study was desk review of the literature on NCA. The review of the literature review focused on published information on NCA within 60 years of its existence. Findings show that the components of the multiple land use model for NCA have failed to co- exist. In the 60 years of NCA’s existence, human population has increased from 8,000 in 1959 to 93,136 in 2017. Cattle and small stocks increased from 161,034 and 100,689 small stocks in 1959 to 238,826 cattle and 570,633 small stocks in 2017 (NBS, 2017).The increase in human and livestock population coupled with the increase in human activities in the property jeopardize the conservation and tourism activities. The reveals that NCA’s fate remains in the hands of the decision makers. The study suggests that; firstly the indigenous residents should give up their pastoral and other ways of life and move out to save the NCA. Secondly the decision makers must choose, either to lose NCA or pursue community development. The study recommends abolishing the multiple land use model by relocating all indigenous people outside of the NCA in order to save the property. Key Words: Multiple Land use Model, indigenous residents, and tourism development
