Wildlife tends to be most concentrated on the reserve’s western escarpment.

You can consider the Masai Mara as the jewel of Kenya’s wildlife viewing areas. The annual wildebeest’s migration alone involves over 1.5 million animals arriving in July and departing in November.

There have been some 95 species of mammals, amphibians, and reptiles. Besides, you can find over 400 bird species on the reserve.

  • Wildlife. Nowhere in Africa is more wildlife abundant. The Mara is known as one of the most beautiful wildlife destinations in the world, with an excellent chance of seeing the big five, cheetah, serval, hyena, bat-eared foxes, black-backed and side-striped jackals, hippo, crocodile, baboons, warthog, topi, eland, Thompson’s gazelle, Grant’s gazelle, impala, waterbuck, oribi, reed-buck and zebra.
  • Climatic conditions. Altitude 5,300 feet (1,600 metres). Rainy season from November through May, with peak rainfall in December-January and April-May. The dry season from June-November.

Max temperatures up to 85F (30°C) and min temperatures around 65F (20°C).

Mara Naboisho Private Conservancy

Created in 2010, the Mara Naboisho Conservancy is a private 50,000-acre community pastoralist and wildlife conservation area located in the Great Rift Valley, Kenya. 

The Mara Naboisho Conservancy limits the number of beds per acre and also the number of tourists who may enter the area, thereby reducing the crowds of vehicles. Guests often find themselves the only vehicle around, giving spectacular, unspoiled views of exciting wildlife.

The Conservancy has one of the highest densities of lions in Africa. And because the Mara Naboisho Conservancy is not governed by the same rules that apply to national parks, there is the flexibility to experience something truly profound and to see and do things not possible in the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The passion and expertise of the guides at the conservancy facilitate this experience.

The conservancy provides the opportunity to conserve the land and wildlife, while simultaneously creating wealth for the Maasai landowners. By visiting the Mara Naboisho Conservancy, you will be playing a part in protecting the cultural heritage of the local Maasai community and improving their access to vital services.

Naboisho, which means “coming together” in the Maasai’s Maa language, is a community response that combines conservation of the natural and cultural heritage, tourism, and the enhancement of livelihoods of the local communities.

The Mara Naboisho Conservancy is now the second largest conservancy in the region. This conservancy ensures that the environment has a chance to have wildlife protected and that the landowners benefitted, both financially and from a social development perspective.
