Experience unforgettable comfort and adventure when you explore a conservancy adjacent to Maasai Mara.
Stunning, Adventurous Destination
To conserve Maasai Mara’s beauty and splendour, a number of conservancies were formed around this national reserve. Mara North Conservancy is one of these conservancies, and it is important to the Maasai Mara ecosystem. It is situated on the north western edge of the national reserve, covering an area of about 30,000ha. Established in 2009, this nonprofit company is a joint venture between local landowners and camps located within the conservancy.
Mara North Conservancy leased land from 800 landowners, who now benefit from the profits made through tourism. The payments for leasing their land are fixed regardless of the number of visitors who come to Mara North or changes in the industry. In addition to wildlife conservation, this company ensures controlled grazing among other ways of conserving the Maasai Mara ecosystem.
Explore this conservancy to see wildlife that includes elephants, giraffes, impalas, zebras and Thomson’s gazelles. The Leopard Gorge, a breeding ground for big cats, is situated in this conservancy. This sanctuary houses five prides of lions, seven cheetahs and about six leopards. Another scenic spot in the conservancy is Lemek Hills, which is a habitat for African wild dogs. In addition, Mara River flows within this conservancy watering riverine vegetation on its banks, where some camps and lodges are situated.
