Olare Motorogi Conservancy was formed as a result of the merger between Olare Orok and Motorogi conservancies in 2006. The more than 200 Masai landowners set aside 32,000 acres of land which includes habitats such as Olare Orok and Ntiatikiak River valleys as well as their riverine forests.
Prior 2006, 32000 acres of the land in the conservancy was populated by homesteads and herds of animals grazing uncontrollably. Consequently, the eco-system could not sustain people, wildlife and animals. By giving up their land for community conservation, the Maasai were able to create an income stream from wildlife tourism as well as address the sustainability of rotational grazing.
Olare Motorogi borders Masai Mara Game Reserve which is managed by Narok County Government. Mara North and Naboisho conservancies.
Olare Motorogi Conservancy has lush grasslands, riverine forests and woodlands. It offers intimate game viewing with only one vehicle exploring about 2,100 acres.
The conservancy embraces sustainability of the Mara ecosystem by limiting the number of safari vehicles and beds per acre. As a result, there is a great diversity and balance of predators and herbivores that are present all year round.
The management of the Conservancy is conducted by a Board consisting of representation from both the Maasai landowners and tourism partners in conjunction with donors who were instrumental in supporting the Conservancy.
