MARA NORTH CONSERVANCY
Mara North Conservancy is a beautiful wilderness area of more than 30,000 Ha. The Conservancy is a not-for-profit public company established on the 1st of January 2009 as a partnership between 10 member camps and over 800 Masai landowners. The aim is to create a best-practice, world-class conservancy with long-term commitments to the environment, wildlife and local communities.
The long rains generally start in mid-April and last till mid-June, whilst the short rains fall during the month of November. Even during these ‘green’ seasons it generally rains at night, with bright skies during the day.
The hottest months tend to be October, January and February, whilst July and August
can be quite cold, particularly during the evening and night when a warm sweater or jacket is recommended. Temperatures range from 15-35 C.
