The Olare Motorogi Conservancy shares the borders within Masai Mara National Reserve directly, especially its down valleys of Ntiakitiak and the rivers of the Olare Orok Rivers which occupied the larges acacia woodland trees.
Olare Motorogi Conservancy was formed in 2006 by the Masai landlord owners who combined and contributed their land to make this conservancy.
It is reported that over 277 Masia landlords gave out their land that is equivalent to 3500 acres and they stopped grazing their cattle from this land which later attracted several animals because of the presence of food. Later the carnivores were also attracted to the areas and this led to the ecosystem balance.
