The Gallmann Memorial Foundation (GMF) is a non-for-profit charitable organization active in Ol Ari Nyiro, Laikipia Nature Conservancy, West Laikipia, Northern Kenya.
It was created by Kuki Gallmann to honour the memory of Paolo Gallmann and Emanuele Pirri- Gallmann -her husband and son- who both died tragically and are buried in Ol ari Nyiro. Have a look at the movie of this interesting, but tragic story: ‘I dreamed of Africa’ (2000). The GMF aims to make of Ol ari Nyiro an example of this conservation principle and a monument to nature.
Ol Ari Nyiro (“The Place of Springs”) consists of 100.000 acres private wildlife sanctuary and nature Conservancy situated on the extreme Western edge of the Laikipia Plateau along the Great Rift valley. Spreading through hills and savannah, comprising the only remaining indigenous relic forest in the area, and cut in half by the stunning Mukutan Gorge (“The Meeting”), Ol Ari Nyiro supports an extraordinary variety of flora, over 400 species of birds, a large wildlife population, particularly of elephants, lions, black rhino, leopard, antelopes, baboons, and the largest known population of Cape Buffalo in private land in Africa with over 4000 recorded heads.
I developed the plan and the design for the online presence of the Gallmann Memorial Foundation and headed team which created the website.
