The Mara Triangle is the North-Western part of the Maasai Mara National Reserve, Kenya, and is managed by the not-for-profit organisation The Mara Conservancy on behalf of Trans-Mara County Council (Trans Mara District).
Divided from the rest of the Maasai Mara National Reserve by the Mara River, the Mara Triangle is less visited and less crowded, often with many more game animals grazing on the plains and between the volcanic hills that distinguish this corner of the Mara.
The Mara Conservancy plays an active role in initiating and encouraging conservation efforts within the Maasai Mara National Reserve. A list of our ongoing achievements and goals include:
- A reduction of poaching in the Mara Triangle and the surrounding area
- Improved infrastructure through road maintenance within the Mara Triangle as well as the access roads to camps and lodges outside of the Triangle
- Maintenance of a network of secondary roads and tracks to improve wildlife viewing
- Restoration of existing ranger stations and installation of renewable energy and water harvesting systems
- Establishment of a transparent and modern, IT-based revenue collection system
- Strengthened relationships between the Reserve and the surrounding areas by encouraging community projects
- Promotion of responsible eco-tourism principles among camps and lodges
