Mara Ngenche camp shut by NEMA over non-compliance

The now controversial Mara Ngeche Safari Camp sitting deep in the Masaai Mara has on Thursday been shut by NEMA over non-compliance.

In a statement issued by NEMA, they have been ordered to conduct an environmental assessment to determine the viability of the camp currently.

“NEMA has closed the Mara Ngeche Hotel in Maasai Mara game reserve for non-compliance to Environmental requirements. They were ordered to undertake fresh environmental Assessment to determine the suitability of the camp at current site.” Said NEMA.

The news comes at a time when the Tourism CS confirmed to have discussed with the Narok Governor to remove the camp from its location.

Kenyans were also angered as to why someone will be allowed to erect a business in the corridors of the wildebeest migration.

“I have discussed with Narok County Governor Samuel Tunai, about the camp built beside the Mara River, blocking the Wildebeest crossing. Its very disturbing and we expect the Governor to take action and have the camp removed!” Said CS Najib Balala

According to the owner of the camp, he confirmed that the business has been in operation for 10-years and that they had obtained all necessary approval back then.
