Maasai Mara is a unique trans-border heritage site for both Kenya and Tanzania. It lies within the Narok County on the Kenyan side What are some of the challenges it poses to the Communities around it?
This unique national heritage and treasure has its fair share of unique challenges .
The communities that inhabit the area around Mara cannot be involved in economic activities that would jeopardize or threaten its existence. The County Government had to look for a way of cushioning the people living around Maasai Mara. Even where they are keeping livestock they are limited only to that activity.
