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

Though we didn't go to see the actual river crossing, it was great to see so many wildebeest just hanging around everywhere. And we got to see cheetah, lions, zebras, giraffes every day. The landscape was amazing as well. The best I've ever been

Conservancy is home to a few camps, but is far less busy than Masai Mara National Park. Far less vehicles and people.

The Olare Orok Conservancy adjoins the Masi Mara National Park. The Masai Mara is now very crowded during the peak period of July to September as more and more groups visit the Mara to see the annual migration of Wildebeest and Zebra. Guests staying in the large hotels and lodges in the Mara National Park are not permitted access to... More

Best place to stay in or near the Mara River. Private conservancy offers the advantages of less vehicle traffic and privacy to take prime advantage of the local wildlife.

The Mara eco-system is a unique place and really no other place like it in the world that I know of. It is a robust and perfect example of nature's ability to evolve into a system that withstands droughts, floods, overgrazing and human interference and yet keeps delivering. The National Reserve itself has really become the victim of greed, politics... More

In this conservancy you have a great possibility to spot lots of wild animals (cheetahs, leopard, elephants, lions..... The nature varies from savanna to river banks. Game drives are well organised.
