About Ol Kinyei and Naboisho Conservancies

Ol Kinyei Conservancy is a private wildlife conservancy encompassing 65km² of the Mara ecosystem in Kenya. This unspoilt wildlife conservancy is known for its beautiful scenery and diverse landscapes, hosting numerous large animals species. The conservancy is home to big cats (lions, leopards and cheetahs), elephants, buffalos, giraffes, zebras and lots of plains game. The Great Wildebeest Migration usually passes through Ol Kinyei between June and October, making it an ideal spot for witnessing this world-famous wildlife spectacle.

The Ol Kinyei Conservancy was the first community-owned conservancy established in the Mara region. The local Maasai guides are highly experienced and qualified, offering exceptional game drives and bush walks. Visitors can also experience Maasai culture in the community-run conservancy.

The Naboisho Conservancy borders on Masai Mara National Reserve, incorporating over 200km² of game-rich bushveld and savannahs. This private conservancy offers superb game viewing, hosting high numbers of elephants, giraffes and other plains game. The abundance of herbivores attracts healthy populations of predators. There are about 100 lions inhabiting Naboisho, including the largest pride in the Mara region.

During the Loita Migration wildebeest, zebras and other grazers migrate from the Loita Plains to Masai Mara passing through Ol Kinyei Conservancy in about January. In February and March the plains of Ol Kinyei Conservancy are teeming with wildebeest and other herbivores, as this is calving season. Then the Loita Migration travels into the Naboisho Conservancy before continuing into Olare Motorogi and finally Masai Mara Reserve.

About Ol Kinyei Conservancy Camp

Just six walk-in safari tents under the tall Acacia trees along the Laetoli - this is the only camp inside Ol Kinyei Conservancy.

This tented camp offers a genuine safari experience in the unspoilt Mara ecosystem, where the open plains, forests and rivers make for beautiful wild scenery. This authentic camp has a relaxed, yet exclusive atmosphere - providing a comfortable bush retreat away from the crowds. The permanent tented rooms are set on wooden platforms with small deck areas for relaxing in nature. The tents are spacious and well-appointed, featuring en-suite bathrooms with hot showers and flush toilets.

Expert guides conduct shared game drives in 4x4 safari vehicles, taking guests game viewing in the private Ol Kinyei and Naboisho Conservancies, and Masai Mara Game Reserve.

About Olare Motorogi Conservancy

This incredibly scenic wildlife conservancy incorporates 33 000-acres of grasslands, riverine forests and acacia woodlands bordering on Masai Mara National Reserve.

Only a small number of 4x4 game vehicles from the few small camps inside the area are allowed to operate in Olare Motorogi, ensuring low densities of safari vehicles. The exclusive conservancy boasts high densities of lions and sizeable populations of other wildlife, including other big cats and elephants. Olare Motorogi Conservancy is home to endangered rhinos and African wild dogs, as well as rich birdlife, including numerous raptors. The Great Wildebeest Migration (usually June to October) and the Loita Migration (after calving season in February and March), see an influx of wildebeest, zebra and other herbivores in the conservancy, along with the attendant predators.

The Olare Motorogi Conservancy operates as a partnership between some 277 Maasai landowners and the private safari companies that lease the lands. The wildlife and habitat of this key buffer zone and migration corridor are thus conserved and the local Maasai benefit from monthly payments and employment in the tourism industry.

About the Camp in Olare Motorogi Conservancy

Tucked away deep in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, this tented camp offers an authentic wildlife getaway in the game-rich Mara ecosystem of Kenya.

This small camp is located along the Ntiakatiak River in a beautiful wild setting, offering accommodation in ten spacious tents with en-suite bathrooms. The safari tents are tastefully decorated and furnished, featuring solar lighting and small verandahs. The camp has well-appointed, spacious dining and lounge areas which open out onto the bush, providing comfortable places to dine and relax.
