We arrive at the Mara Conservancies in Kenya and Lodge manager Fairman shows us around the Olare Mara Kempinski safari lodge. We are travelling with #KenyaLive as part of the Make it Kenya campaign developed by Kenyan tourism. The aim of the exercise is to give people a taste of what it is like visiting Kenya and why a safari in Kenya should be their next choice in destination and experience.

The Mara conservancy was established in 2000 as some of the local leaders became concerned about levels of mismanagement in the Mara Triangle. As a result the Mara Conservancy, a not-for-profit management company, was established to manage the Triangle on behalf of Trans-Mara County Council. A five-year management agreement was signed on 25 May 2001 and the Mara Conservancy started operations in the Mara Triangle on 12 June so to ensure a better structured and well run initiative. This created the first public/private sector partnership of its kind in the region and has led to an active and cooperative partnership between conservation professionals and the local Maasai community. It has also introduced an initiative to improve the conservation and overall management of one of the most visited and well known protected areas in the world.

The Olare Mara Kempinski lodge is part of the Kempinski group of lodges and guests at the Olare Mara Kempinski Masai Mara leave with memories that last a lifetime, thanks to stunning surroundings, abundant wildlife and understated luxury blended with authentic African design. Their expert guides are ready and waiting to show you this fascinating part of the world.

Below lodge manager Fairman shows us around the Olare Mara Kempinski safari lodge and explains why the establishment is the premium choice for your Kenyan holiday.
