Conservancies around the Masai Mara are quintessential for the reserve's survival

As often said before, conservancies are today the reason why the Masai Mara thrives, inspite of insanely large bed numbers. Privacy and gameviewing on conservancies is by and large better, due to smaller guest numbers.

Because its a private conservancy fewer vehicles are permitted meaning more relaxed wildlife viewing. Vehicles can also go off road. The wildlife itself is fantastic- several leopards have territory in the area including Fig, her son Olare and Kabosho's offspring. Multiple prides of lions also consider it to be their domain so big cat viewing is regular.

This camps in this area observe much stricter rules about guiding and as a result, there is less crowding around any of the wildlife. As well, the camps take more care to look after the environment. Staying on the conservancy instead of the reserve should provide a higher quality experience.

The lovely conservancy Olare Orok Conservancy adjacent to the Masai Mara enjoys a few benefits well worth to heed. For one not being in the actual Mara means there are no park fees. Furthermore, it is less packed when it comes to the number of cars around when on safari and you can drive more freely. One does not have... More

Excellent game reserve out side the Masai Mara. They only allow up to 94 visitor in total at any one time at thus reserve. The vehicles can go of track to follow the animal and only 5 vehicles can surround the animal at any one time. The conservancy also allows Night game drives which is an experience in its self

Owned by the Masai, few camps, with limited rooms and strict rules regarding the volume of vehicles around any one animal - mean less traffic in this truly wild life area. Proven by the sheer volume of animals in the Conservancy.

Although quite dry, (much rain is needed!) at the time of our trip - we still had an amazing time! The wildlife is abundant as ever!

This was my first visit to the Conservancy and I was fortunate enough to do nine game drives ! What was so distinct about this area was that ours was the only land cruiser at almost all sightings, which is so fantastic to experience and appreciate if you have done umpteen game drives in other national parks, where the vulnerable...

This is clearly the only way to see game in Masai Mara. There are a few small places to stay in one of the best conservancies. Of course when you see over 30 lions (different ones) in one day before 2pm, you know you are onto a good thing. The game drives were amazing….The thing about being in a conservancy... More
