Type: Nature/ Wildlife Areas, Nature & Parks
Owner description: The Mara is a beautiful but sensitive environment that can survive only if properly respected. Well-watered by the Mara River, enjoying abundant vegetation, wildlife and rainfall, its ecology would appear, at first sight, to be relatively resilient. It also appears to have withstood the erosive effects of huge numbers of visiting tourists extraordinarily well. There are signs, however, that the delicate balance between tourist numbers and wildlife populations cannot be properly maintained for much longer as evidenced by the reduction in the protective vegetation cover and the emergence of a series of dust bowls. Meanwhile, the Reserve is host to 95 species of mammals, amphibians and other reptiles and 485 species of birds. During the dry season (July to October) it also hosts a major concentration of migratory herbivores including about 250,000 zebra and 1.3 million wildebeest. Amongst the list of easy-to-view species are: gazelle, elephant, topi, buffalo, lion (Kenya's largest population), black rhino, hippo, hyena, giraffe, leopard and mongoose.

The Mara Triangle is managed by what the Kenyans call a "Muzungu" - white person not by Narok County Council as is the rest of the park (excepting the conservancies). Because of this it is greener and has more wildlife, especially elephants, than anywhere else in The Mara. If you are within reach of it or even prefer to stay... More

Kenya is a beautiful and diverse country. The Masai people were friendly and welcoming and it was lovely to visit some villages and been welcomed as family. The wildlife, obviously, is spectacular and there are plenty of opportunities to see all the big 5 and lots more!

Having our picnic lunch at the beautiful place felt so refreshing. I loved the way the monkeys stole food from people. The beautiful colored lizard couldn't pass without notice. Oh, the KWS guys in this place are so friendly and ready to answer questions. Kudos to them

The Mara Triangle Conservancy is a very special location occupying all of land west of the Mara river and up to the towering escarpment wall to the west. This is where the Migration herds enter into Kenya early each fall from the adjacent Serengeti to the south, With that said, there is no bad time to visit here with many... More

I commend the local community for preserving not only the... More
