The migration has seen its ups and downs in the current past years, with some conservationist stating is abuse of wildlife privacy. Well, the county authorities have nothing much to do about it because they are making money. The myriads of visitors coming into Kenya in July and August are mostly attracted by the annual migration which is truly a wonder to see.
First timers sometimes feel also crumpled up in a dungeon with tour vehicles and personal vehicles circling around the poor wildlife since everyone wants to catch a glimpse of the activity. Whereas it’s positive to have the revenue from the visitors, it’s also a negative impression to them as well due to their perceptions when they gathered the information to come to Kenya. Whereas the Kenya Tourist Board has done massive marketing campaigns to draw visitors into Kenya, the behaviors experience in the past 3 years has been wanting. Contrary to the county councils reserve, the areas surrounding are referred to as the conservancies which are controlled and they follow defined rules and laws. Such as type of vehicle and color, constructions types and colors which must blend with the environment. Distance between one vehicle and another to the wildlife (there is no overcrowding vehicles where the wildlife are – in other words there is no harassing the wildlife)
In the conservancies definitely the wildlife is considered the king. The vehicles and lodges inside blend with the natural environment, there is s a lot of cohesion between the lodge owners the community and the wildlife, however not many international visitors know about these lodges, because they don’t concentrate on mass tourists but on private, personal discreet tourist and probably why they charge a bit more higher than the rest of the lodges/ camps. Responsible tourism is emphasized in conservancies so that the surrounding communities that live near the wildlife greatly benefit in terms of being part of conservations and revenue growth and improved livelihoods.
Our emphasis is on one camp known as the Olkeri Mara Camp located in the Siana Conservancy. The Olkeri Mara Camp had 12 ensuite rooms; 10 standard and 2 deluxe. Accommodation is of the luxury type and personal service to ensure that all ones need is take care of. Olkeri can be fully booked by families or private parties with prices ranging from USD150 per person sharing in the low season to USD290 in the peak season for years 2014/2015.
