Pardamat Conservation Area is based on a mixed conservation model that aims to ensure the long-term survival of the Maasai Mara ecosystem while also generating economic benefits for local communities. The Pardamat community’s 850 landowners have legally registered their 26,000 hectares of land as a wildlife conservation area using this model. The Pardamat area is critical to the overall health of the Mara ecosystem. It is adjacent to the conservancies of Naboisho, Olkinyei, Lemek, and Mara North and serves as a migration route from the Loita Plains to the Mara Triangle and then to the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. Furthermore, elephants prefer its hilly and forested terrain for browsing as well as open spaces, despite rising threats such as unplanned development and settlements, as well as fencing.
