The Masai Mara Reserve, The Mara Triangle and The Mara Conservancy

The Mara Triangle

The Mara Triangle is the North-Western part of the The Mara Triangle, Kenya, and is managed by the non-governmental organisation - The Mara Conservancy on behalf of Trans-Mara County Council (Trans Mara District). Divided from the rest of the Masai Mara game reserve by the Mara River, the Mara Triangle is less visited and less crowded, often with many more game animals grazing on the plains and between the volcanic hills that distinguish this corner of the Mara. The Mara Triangle is one third of the Masai Mara National Reserve, with an area of 510 km². It has two natural borders and one political; to the South West is the Tanzania/Serengeti border, to the East is the Mara River, and to the North West is the Oloololo Escarpment (also known as the Siria Escarpment).

The Mara Triangle is managed by the Mara Conservancy (under contract by the Trans-Mara county council) a local non profit organisation formed by the local Maasai, and contains a number of anti-poaching units.

There is only one lodge inside the Mara Triangle - Mara Serena - and only one camp - Little Governors. There are camps outside of the area which also do their game drives inside the Mara Triangle: Kichwa Tembo, Bateleur Camp, Mara Siria, Kilima Camp and Mpata Safari Club.

The Mara Conservancy

The Mara Conservancy is a private, non-governmental agency that has been managing infrastructure and anti-poaching efforts within the Triangle of Kenya’s Masai Mara Game Reserve. In the northern tip of the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem, the Masai Mara Game Reserve was gazetted in the late 1940s. The Mara River, descending from the currently threatened Mau Forest, separates the Mara from the reserve’s eastern sector.

By 1999, however, conditions in the Mara Triangle had greatly deteriorated due to mismanagement. Poaching was rampant. Infrastructure of roads and tourists services had all but disappeared. It was obvious that income was not being properly distributed to the Masai communities who own the land, nor was money being put back into maintenance of the reserve. Safaris were no longer heading into the Mara Triangle.

The Mara Conservancy began managing the Mara Triangle June 11, 2001, based on the premise that its most tangible and significant income would be derived from tourism revenue. As the first public/private sector conservation partnership in Kenya, the Mara Conservancy fulfilled its first five-year contract and entered a new ten-year contract in October 2005. Supported by a generous U.S. donor, creation of a new ten-year management plan was begun in 2007 and will ensure greater, long-term security for this world-renowned game reserve.

Among the Mara Conservancy’s primary objectives is effective management of the Mara Triangle’s riverine forest, the Mara River, the annual wildebeest and zebra migratory phenomenon, and other flora and fauna.

The Mara Conservancy goals are to eventually reintroduce the roan antelope and wild dog, to ensure a healthy population of threatened species such as rhino and lion, and to study means of facilitating regeneration of the dwindling numbers of balanites trees and forest and woodland cover in general.
