Mara Plains Camp
Set in the private 30,000 acre Olare Orok Conservancy, and just 20 metres from northern boundary of the Masai Mara National Reserve, Mara Plains Camp is a peaceful, exclusive tented camp.
It isn't until just before you cross the memorable and grand swing bridge steps that the camp reveals itself. Once across the river, and under the cool shade of the trees, there is a lovely open grass area leading to the main area, which consists of 3 octagonal tents, connected by wood decking and raised above the savannah.
Each of the 2 lounges is furnished with comfortable sofas and chairs for a bit of relaxation, and the small library provides resource materials and relative literature.
Rarely a night passes without lion roaring nearby, while leopard are regularly found to wander through the camp and cheetah have established territories on the savannah nearby the main area. The wildebeest migration seasonally congregates outside camp. Open game drive vehicles, small camp size and low tourism vehicle densities make this camp a regional gem. Guests of Mara Plains may also enjoy walking and night drives, 2 sought after experiences on safari.
The camp caters for only 14 guests in 7 uniquely designed octagonal canvas rooms. Each is raised on decks, and opens on 3 sides to the outside.
Floor to ceiling net walls and the marquis ceiling make for very open-air and inviting environs.
The rooms have a dressing area as well as private verandahs with seating and exquisite views. The en-suite facilities consist of a double basin vanity, flush toilet and shower.
All meals, soft drinks, beer, housewine, a laundry service, airstrip transfers, game drives and shared scheduled activities on the Conservancy, and Conservancy fees are included. Additional day game drives into the Masai Mara National Reserve can be arranged (the Masai Mara National Reserve daily fee will be an additional per person cost).
Children of any age are welcome. Rates available on request.
