In recent decades hunting tourism has assumed the proportion of a global industry, as wildlife has been turned into objects of economic utility. The paper examines the interplay between green grabbing and hunting tourism in Loliondo, an area in northern Tanzania home to Maasai pastoralists. It shows how the leasing of a hunting concession on village lands by the central government has resulted into restrictions on range resources. This situation has lead to local resistance and struggle over land rights.
