Mara North Conservancy (MNC) is a beautiful private wilderness area of more than 25,000 hectares (~61,000 acres). It is a vital part of the Maasai Mara ecosystem as it forms the north-western zone, bordering the Maasai Mara National Reserve in the south of Kenya.
Mara North Conservancy is a not-for-profit company established in January 2009. The conservancy is a partnership between 13 Tourism Partner members (7 camps, 3 lodges and 3 riding outfits) and over 800 Maasai Landowners. The aim is to create a best practice, world-class conservancy with long-term commitments to the environment, wildlife, and local communities.
MNC strongly believes in low bed density tourism and aspires to an ideal minimum ratio of 142 ha per bed (350 acres per bed) so as to guarantee an exclusive safari while minimizing the impact on the environment.
