This study was conducted to find out the impact of human wildlife-conflicts on
natural resources management in Saadani national park, Tanzania. The data for the
study were collected from three villages vicinity to Saadani National Park
(SANAPA), namely Mkange, Saadani and Matipwili villages. The study cover 97
households survey and 13 key informants interviews including the ward and village
executive officers, District officials and Saadani National Park officials. Both
qualitative and quantitative approaches were used for data analysis. The findings
revealed that the participants were aware of the Human Wildlife Conflicts (HWC)
which exists in Saadani National Park. Most of the HWC are associated by the
increase in population, change of weather and the increase in the wildlife population
in the study area. The results shows that majority of the households are not aware of
the ecosystem benefits which they get from SANAPA. The existence of the HWC
has impacted many, including the death and injuries of people, livestock predation;
destruction of properties as well as the loss of biodiversity. The participants of the
study believe that HWC in Saadani is largely due to the lack of awareness among
people, boundaries disputes and also because there are no appropriate legal
institutions established to educate the people and make reconciliations of the
conflicts. It is concluded in this study that fencing, compensation and establishment
of land right and boundaries are the chief means that could be used to overcome the
HWC in SANAPA and Tanzania in general.
