A well-run conservancy is often far better than a national park for game viewing because of the care that local people and conservationists take to preserve the environment and the wildlife. Olare Orek is one of the best. If you can't find the animals you're...More

I briefly visited this conservancy as it borders another that I was staying in. It has a really nice landscape and excellent game viewing. As with other conservancies there are fewer vehicles which i like. Hopefully i will get to drive around it again soon!

Owned by the Masai, few camps, with limited rooms and strict rules regarding the volume of vehicles around any one animal - mean less traffic in this truly wild life area. Proven by the sheer volume of animals in the Conservancy.
