Forming part of the Maasai Mara ecosystem, this area is located outside the Maasai Mara National Reserve and comprises private wildlife conservancies and concession areas. Protection of these privately 'owned' wildlife sectors relies heavily on the Maasai land owners, stakeholders (owners of the lodges and camps located within the conservancies) and the local tourism sectors. Conservation fees are charged per night to guarantee admission to these areas and also facilitate towards the maintenance of these areas. Other perks include the accessibility to additional activities within these areas, e.g. night game drives, bush walks, bush meals, ATV in the wild, cycling in the wild, which are limited or not allowed within the main Maasai Mara National Reserve. It is imperative to note that in order to access the Maasai Mara National Reserve, admission fees would be paid at both the conservancy and at the national reserve for the day(s) both destinations are accessed.
