More info: Mpala Research Centre opened in 1994. The center is a joint venture of the Smithsonian Institute, Princeton University, the Kenya Wildlife Service, the National Museums of Kenya and the Mpala Research Trust. Researchers representing all the organizations, many from the Smithsonian, are drawn to Mpala to study the workings of the center's remarkable ecosystems.

Mpala Ranch covers 50,000 acres on Kenya's mile-high Laikipia Plateau and is home to wildlife including elephants, lions, cheetahs, leopards, monkeys, giraffes, hippos, zebras, buffalo and gazelles, along with ostriches, eagles, puff adders and cobras.

Mpala has long been a working cattle ranch not a wildlife sanctuary, and that makes it uniquely valuable for research.
