Olare Motorogi Conservancy
The expansive Olare Motorogi Conservancy borders the Maasai Mara National Reserve and is home to an abundance of animals including all the big cats for which the Mara is famous. It forms part of a vital buffer zone between the Mara Reserve and the wildlife dispersal areas surrounding it.
Wildlife presence, population and diversity have greatly increased since the establishment of the conservancy. The conservancy today offers pleasant and exclusive viewing of game in a pristine environment, with a rich and diverse wildlife population rarely found anywhere else on the African savannah.
The area encompassed within the Olare Motorogi Conservancy is a strategic buffer zone for the Maasai Mara National Reserve and the wildlife migration corridors, and will be secured from incompatible land usage, such as wheat farming, charcoal production and subsistence agriculture, which together displace wildlife habitats at an alarming rate in the Narok district. Olare Motorogi Conservancy is set to be a world-class conservancy, generating sustainable income for the landowners, and supporting an increase in wildlife habitat beyond the Maasai Mara National Reserve. This is a wonderful, relatively undisturbed part of the Maasai Mara ecosystem, with good populations of both predators and herbivores, including many elephants. Rhino and wild dog have also been sighted in the area occasionally, and it could become a very viable habitat for these two highly endangered species, given the right sort of protection through sensitive tourism development.
It is felt that the Ol Kinyei Conservancy, Olare Motorogi Conservancy and similar future initiatives represent the best chance to save what is undoubtedly the most important part of the Maasai Mara ecosystem outside of the officially protected Mara Reserve area.
