Mara Conservancies

There are currently fifteen unfenced wildlife conservancies in the Mara ecosystem covering 347,011 acres. The total land now protected in this way has doubled the wildlife habitat of the Mara ecosystem, bringing substantial income to thousands of Maasai people.  The Maa Trust works closely with the Maasai Mara Wildlife Conservancies Association to ensure that its community development work complements conservancy efforts across the Maasai Mara. 

The Maa Trust receives $5 per guest per night from the camps within Olare Motorogi Conservancy as well as annual support from Asilia Africa in Naboisho Conservancy. Tourism operators support The Maa Trust to ensure that the benefits of conservancies extend beyond just male landowners, to also reach to women, youth and children.

Activities undertaken by The Maa Trust are focused around Olare Motorogi and Naboisho Conservancies and across Pardamat Conservation area.
