Lion Tracking Research in Ol Kinyei Conservancy

Follow our team in Ol Kinyei Conservancy as they assist the vets of the Kenya Wildlife Service and Mara Predator Conservation Program track and collar “Ole Cook”, a young male lion named after our Chairman and Founder of Ol Kinyei Conservancy, Jake Grieves-Cook.

The temporary GPS collars are used on just a few individuals and are vital in lion conservation. An understanding of their movements and behaviour helps reduce human-wildlife conflict and habitat loss and so protects lions for the future.
Ol Kinyei Conservancy is in the Mara ecosystem and comprises over 18,500 acres of protected habitat set aside for wildlife. Guests of our Porini Safari Camps here have exclusive access to this land which has one of the highest densities of wild lions on the planet.
Previous collaring data published by the Mara Predator Conservation Program has demonstrated the importance of the Mara Conservancies in providing a safe haven for wild lions beyond the Maasai Mara National Reserve.
