Welcome to Mara Siana Conservancy


Mara Siana Conservancy is a community project managed and sponsored by WWF Kenya and other partners. It is among the 24 conservancies located in the Maasai Mara landscape in south western Kenya. It shares its boundaries with the Maasai Mara National Reserve (MMNR), a world renowned protected area with some of the highest wildlife densities in the world and the last remaining mass migration of large mammals.


What We Do

Wildlife Conservation

The Mara Siana Conservancy in Kenya, strategically situated just beyond the boundaries of a Maasai Mara National Park, boasts a sprawling expanse of 35,000 acres. This vast landscape accommodates a remarkable variety of wildlife, ranging from iconic big cats like lions, leopards, and cheetahs to smaller hunters like jackals. The conservancy’s unique positioning, in conjunction with its rich biodiversity, fosters a thriving ecosystem where wildlife thrives due to the presence of abundant prey species.

Education to the children and the locals

We are dedicated to nurturing a harmonious relationship between nature and the people who call it home. Our mission encompasses a wide range of initiatives, including environmental education, responsible family planning, conservancy clean-up efforts, protection of wildlife migration routes, promotion of energy-saving jikos for sustainable cooking, rainwater harvesting to ensure a reliable water source, sustainable livestock herding practices, and reforestation through tree planting. Through these endeavors, we empower our community with knowledge and tools to make informed choices, reduce our ecological footprint, and preserve the beauty and biodiversity of our environment. Join us in creating a healthier, more sustainable future for our community and the planet as a whole – together, we can make a lasting impact.

Community Empowerment

All the achievements of Mara Siana would not be possible without the support of the land owners within our conservancy. 1464 members of the association let their land to us contributing to the protection of wildlife habitats. As every member owns 6.5 acres we have about 9500 acres at command. The members enter into a 15-year management agreement with the conservancy and conversely receive a lease from our donor WWF Kenya. According to the determined regulations Mara Siana manages the lands and employees rangers to protect and monitor the resident wildlife populations.
