This study examines the services that the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) has been providing to local communities in the area, the successes attributable to the multiple land use practices in the NCA and explores the challenges associated with the application of the multiple land use model in the NCA. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area Authority (NCAA) deploys a multiple land use model, whose main objectives are to foster the conservation of natural and cultural resources while safeguarding the interests of local residents and boosting tourism. This study uses a cross-sectional design in which data was collected at one point in time from a selected sample of respondents this is due to the limited time allocated for this study and financial constraint. The researcher used interviews, focus group discussion and observation to support different aspects of the study, however to derive both primary and secondary data for the research. In this study the researcher used ‘thematic coding’ which helped to identify common issues that recur while sorting out the main themes. The study found that operations in the NCA focused on the attainment of the three major pillars of its establishment: Ensuring conservation and improving tourism activities while promoting the livelihoods of the pastorals in the area. The government, therefore, should make sure tourism policy states clearly the three objectives of NCAA as it was highly based on the social services provided by the NCA to the local community, sustainability of multiple land use model in NCA and the challenges observed during conservation. Also findings indicate the failure of the NCAA to provide good links between NCAA and community. Therefore the study, recommends for research on how to reform the pastoral council and its management. Keywords: Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Local Communities, Area, Land.
