Mara Plains Camp, Masai Mara National Reserve

Completely rebuilt in safari-chic style, Mara Plains is situated in a private conservancy adjacent to the world famous Masai Mara Game Reserve.

Completely rebuilt in safari-chic style, Mara Plains is situated in a private conservancy on the 35,000 acre private Olare Motorogi Conservancy which lies on the northern border of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in southwestern Kenya adjacent to the world famous Masai Mara Game Reserve. The camp has just seven luxury tents making it one of the smallest and most personal in the area. Easy access to the Mara River to observe the Great Migration allows guests to experience the best of both worlds: the magnificence of the Mara combined with the uncrowded exclusivity of a private conservancy with walking safaris, night game drives, Maasai village visits and unrivalled wildlife. Mara Plains Camp is a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux and National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World.

The camp can accommodate up to a maximum of 14 guests and children from 8 years are welcome and can be accommodated in the family suite.

Activities · Early morning, late afternoon and night game drives in an open, 4×4 vehicle · Local village visits · Balloon flights across the Maasai Mara (extra cost)
