with the great Mara plains behind the camp
Overlooking a resident hippo pod in the Mara river, providing guests with endless entertainment.
Karen Blixen camp location is spectacular, with the great Mara plains behind the camp and the impressive escarpment of the Mara River in front. You will experience an authentic safari experience from relatively well-priced accommodation. Throughout the day, zebras, elephants and hippos come to drink from the river. Named after the Danish author who penned the incredible Out of Africa novel, Karen Blixen Camp truly paints the same romantic story told so beautifully in Blixen’s memoir.
The camp comprises 22 spacious tents set on large mahogany platforms – each with a veranda from which one can enjoy an afternoon siesta taking in the wonderful surroundings. The tents are furnished with comfortable accurate reproductions of Karen Blixen’s private furniture to fit in with the cosy atmosphere for the ultimate camping luxury.
Karen Blixen Camp is committed to responsible wildlife experiences. Balloon safaris will take you high above the impressive Masai Mara plains, and gliding quietly through the wind is truly a magical and breath-taking experience. Game drives are offered for day and night. Also, walking with armed guides is arranged for those who wish to experience the magnitude of the Mara savannah on foot. Nature walks are kept within the camp and focus entirely on the rich birdlife and little insects inhabiting the area and how the Masai make use of the indigenous plants for medical and ritual purposes.
