A small lodge in a prime position in the Mara Reserve
A marvellous combination of romance, adventure, discovery and exploration
Mara Plains Camp is one of only five camps in the Mara Olare Motorogi Conservancy in the Masai Mara in Southwest Kenya. Set in an excellent private conservancy area to the north of the main Masai Mara Reserve, this very small and very high quality lodge is in a prime position. The sister camp, Mara Expedition Camp, is located just a few kilometres away. To allow the beauty of one of the world's richest wild ecosystems to shine, the design of Mara Plains is one of understatement and quiet class.
Upon arriving at the camp, you walk across a bridge over the river, up a small slope to some giant steps at the top of which you are greeted by an endless horizon with one, single, flat-topped tree – the quintessential shape of East Africa. With only seven tents, Mara Plains Camp is one of the smallest camps within the Mara region, giving a very personal and intimate feel and a high degree of flexibility. Each tent is very large with en-suite facilities and traditional decoration showing the Masai, Arab and colonial culture. Wrap around verandas offer spectacular views across the plains.
Early morning, late afternoon and night game drives are in an open, 4-wheel drive vehicle, all guided by the camps extremely experienced staff. The camp is very flexible with regards to your schedule and will happily arrange meals around your daily plans. As well as game drives, you can take part in local village visits in low-vehicle density tourism land.
