The economy of this ecosystem is entirely dependent on tourism activities and the subject property is a resort designed and strategically positioned to achieve such advantage from the Maasai Mara National reserve. The park is a major attraction of tourists for its exceptional population of Big Cats, game, and most importantly, the annual migration of zebra, Thomson's gazelle and Wildebeest from the Serengeti every year from July to October, a migration so immense that it is called the Great Migration.
The method of valuation adopted is the Income Approach.
