We recently had a guest at Naboisho Camp share with us his footage of a young Lion Pride spotted near the camp. Thank you to Victor for sharing this with us! Please enjoy the short clip below and read on to find out more about the Lions that roam the Mara Naboisho Conservancy.

The Lions of Naboisho
One of the major issues outside the Maasai Mara National Reserve is the increasing pressure from the Maasai on wildlife and natural resources. One way of enhancing wildlife conservation outside protected areas is the creation of conservancies where important areas with known lion populations are transformed into a kind of semi-protected areas where the numbers of Maasai settlements and livestock herds are managed in a way to maintain a sustainable balance.

[gdlr_quote align=”center” ]In order to know where these conservancies should be placed and what benefits they will have, it is essential to understand the exact movements of the lions in time and space” – Mara Naboisho Conservancy[/gdlr_quote]

By achieving this, it will be possible to advise the Maasai people about when and where not to graze their livestock during certain times depending on where the lions are situated and thereby avoid direct confrontations between Maasai and lions. It is about achieving the goal where the Masai people and the wildlife again can live in harmony as they have done before.The Mara Naboisho Lion Project is supported by Kenya Wildlife Trust and Danish Zoological Society.

Read more about what is being done to help conserve the numbers and habitat of the Lions of Naboisho on the Mara Naboisho Website.
