Click here to watch Ol Kinyei Conservancy video Ol Kinyei Conservancy has been recently set up with the support of the local Maasai people. It is on the border of the Maasai Mara National Park and forms a fantastic new safari location.
Ol Kinyei Conservancy is less than 18kms from the Maasai Mara National Park and has recently been set up by a Kenyan organisation called Porini Ecotourism who have agreed with the local Maasai community to set aside the area for a reserve for wildlife, so that the habitat could be protected and wildlife conserved.
This is pristine wilderness with open savannah plains, riverine forest, springs, streams and rivers, rolling hills and spectacular views across the Maasai Mara National Park. Ol Kinyei belongs to a Maasai community who have recently set aside the conservancy as a sanctuary for wildlife. The conservancy holds a wide variety of the animal species for which the Mara is famous including a large resident pride of lions, elephant, giraffe, leopard and cheetah.Ol Kinyei is well off the beaten track and has not been visited by tourists until now. It lies in the heart of Maasailand and the animals are truly wild and not yet habituated to the presence of vehicles. The numbers of tourist visitors are being limited to a maximum of twelve per day to retain the wild and unspoilt nature of the area and to minimise the impact on the environment
