Kenya

Mara Plains Camp

PLAN MY TRIP

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.

Early morning, late afternoon, and evening game drives are conducted by expert Maasai guides in specially designed Toyota Land Cruisers. These safari vehicles are the only completely open game drive vehicles in the Maasai Mara. Guided bush walks take a closer look at the flora and fauna with lessons on traditional uses of bark and herbs. Other activities include cultural tours and village visits, bush breakfasts and lunches, sundowners, horse safaris and hot air balloon rides. As an added treat, each tent includes the use of a Canon Eos 5D Camera and lenses and Swarovski binoculars.

The well-though out camp was positioned perfectly so the horizon lies ahead, punctuated by a single acacia tree. The common lounge and library are set on raised decks. The camp has a dining room and bar but meals are eaten inside and outside at the guest’s preference and schedule. At night, the outdoor firepit is the place to be for clear views of a starry sky and the camaraderie of new friends. The camp was built to be as environmentally friendly as possible, and no cement was used in the construction of the camp. Among many other conservation initiatives, Mara Plains continues to recycle and utilize solar power as its only form of producing electricity.
