Mara North Conservancy has a conservation area of 30,000 Ha which accommodates the twelve member camps in a sustainable way that benefits the environment, the wildlife, and the community. The Mara North Conservancy has one of the lowest tourist and vehicle densities in the ecosystem due to managed volume and strict land-use plans.
The number of beds per camp is restricted based on Mara North’s formula of one bed per 350 acres (or one tent per 700 acres). Low density tourism, as well as a limited number of game vehicles provides an exclusive safari experience, while minimizing the impact on the environment.
The Maasai Mara (Masai Mara) is known as Africa’s Greatest Wildlife Reserve, situated in southwest Kenya. Famous for the abundance of lion, the Great Wildebeest Migration and the Maasai people, well known for their distinctive custom and dress, it is without a doubt one of Africa’s most famous safari destinations.
Maasai Mara National Reserve stretches 1,510 sq km (580 sq miles) and raises 1,500-2,170 meters above sea level. The terrain of the reserve is primarily grassland and riverine forest with clumps of the distinctive acacia trees. It’s about 270 km from the capital city Nairobi and takes about 5-6 hours by road or 40-45 minutes by flight.
The Maasai Mara Ecosystem holds one of the highest lion densities in world and this is where over two million Wildebeest, Zebra and Thomsons Gazelle migrate annually. Its hosts over 95 species of mammals and 470 recorded species of birds.
