5,000 acre private conservancy
unscathed virgin bush
Olerai Conservancy was set up through the goodwill of tribal landowners to expand wildlife ranges and migration routes. The whole gambit of African wildlife is here and it now has the largest concentration of giraffe and eland in the local eco-system. Giraffe are known locally as “cool tall guys” and Masai Giraffe differ from other sub-species by their distinctive jig-saw puzzle splotched pattern.
Lion and cheetah move in and out of the territory but are often sighted since the Olerai plains are perfect hunting grounds. The reserve provides an elephant corridor and with lush marshland grasses the elephant are using it as a feeding ground as well as a dispersal area.
