Ol Kinyei Conservancy

Important routes for elephant dispersal and feeding

Home » Destinations » Wildlife Conservancies » Ol Kinyei Conservancy
The Ol Kinyei Conservancy was the first to be established in Kenya’s Masai Mara Ecosystem, with approximately 5,000 acres of private land leased to Porini Ol Kinyei Ltd on a 5-year initial lease. The conservancy is located directly between the Maasai Mara National Reserve and the Loita Plains, in the wildlife dispersal zone and critical habitat for the Loita wildebeest migration. It is made up of open savannah plains, riverine forest, springs, streams, and rivers, rolling hills, and breathtaking views of the Mara. Since 2005, the conservancy has steadily expanded to 18,500 acres and now has one of the highest lion densities in the world. The cheetah population has steadily increased, and the conservancy now has several families and a large number of young cubs. The conservancy is also designated as an important ecological connectivity corridor for elephants. According to a 2016 elephant movement study, Ol Kinyei Conservancy is one of the most important routes for elephant dispersal and feeding.
