Like any other region where humans and wildlife co-exist, Masai Mara faces the problem of livestock predation & crop raiding by predators like lions and hyenas.  MNC has established a predator compensation program to help compensate for the loss of livestock and reduce retaliation by the Maasai communities.


From about July to October, one of nature’s greatest spectacles reaches the Masai Mara, and the weather is cold and dry. Between November and January, the Mara witnesses its short rains with some migrating herds still remaining in the ecosystem around November. February & March are warm and sunny with isolated showers. April-Mid June witnesses the long rains and drenches the landscape in greenery.
