Welcome to Mara North Conservancy
Established in 2009, the 300-sq-km Mara North Conservancy (www.maranorth.com) is one of our favourite conservancies in the Mara, ticking all the right boxes for wildlife, classic Mara landscapes and community engagement. Mara North, which abuts the northwestern edge of the Masai Mara National Reserve, is an absolute cliché of what East Africa is supposed to look like: the flat-topped acacias, the long golden grass and animals everywhere. Leopard sightings are common and there are lots of very large lions, as well as some cheetahs and masses of plains wildlife. In fact, during the migration the horizon can be utterly covered in the black dots of wildebeest and seeing lions on a kill is very common.
