Kenya and Tanzania have entered into an agreement where they will now jointly monitor any developments around the Maasai Mara Game Reserve and Serengeti National Parks.
The terms of the agreement give each country the freedom to to question any development it feels will threaten water in the Mara area.
In the past, there was a huge outcry from Kenya when Tanzania planned to build a major highway across the Serengeti. At the moment, those plans have been put on hold.
The Masai Mara provides a livelihood to millions of people, animals and is a major foreign exchange earner for the two countries.
It is approximately 13,325 square kilometres and is home to more than 1.1 million people and the world-famous Maasai Mara and Serengeti Park.
