There is also an increase in water pollution as a result of the effluents from the many lodges and tented camps that are drained directly into the river without being purified.
All this is to the detriment of animals whose survival depends on the waters of this immense river.
The main challenges of the Great Masai Mara ecosystem to survive
- Demographic growth
- Excessive and uncontrolled tourism development
- Increase in off-road driving in the reserves
- Exploitation of the Mara River Basin
