Nestled in a lush forest on a bend in the Ntiakitiak River, Mara Plains Camp is perfectly set to witness the annual great migration as well as offer customized service in an intimate setting.
The camp accommodates up to fourteen people in seven luxury canvas tents on raised decks. Each tent has deep canvas canopied ceilings, roughhewn wood floors, and thick Lamu wood doors reflecting the Maasai and Arabic influences of East Africa. The en suite bathrooms come with a deep copper bath. In addition, each tent features an extensive wooden veranda with stunning views onto the Ntiakitiak River and the wide savanna. Tents one and two share a deck and can be used as a family tent.
Mara Plains Camp lies within the Olare Orok Conservancy along the Ntiakatek River and borders the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya’s southwestern region. One of only three camps in the area, Mara Plains offers over 30,000 acres of adventure in the private Olare Orok Conservancy, which boasts the area’s lowest vehicle density and few tourists. The camp is ideally located for viewing the annual great migration when millions of wildebeests and thousands of zebras and Thomsons gazelles flood the plains in search of new pastures. Naturally, their corresponding predators the lions, leopards, hyenas, and wilds dogs follow close behind.
