Mara Adventure Camping Safari

Gamewatchers Adventure CampClick to enlarge

4 days (3 nights) including scheduled flights from / to Nairobi. Daily departures Jul - Oct & mid Dec - Mar.

Premium game drives are in shared 4x4 vehicles within the game-filled private Ol Kinyei Conservancy and a full day is spent in the official Masai Mara National Reserve.  Ol Kinyei Conservancy is a very exclusive wildlife reserve in the Mara eco-system, teeming with animals including over 30 lions and 8 leopards.

- Accommodation is in basic tents (10 feet square and 6 feet tall). It is “real camping” and all guests need to bring their own sleeping bag as well as a towel (or these can be hired if booked in advance for $10 per person per night). The tents have foam mattresses and pillows and are insect-proof.

- Each tent has its own flush toilet and safari shower located behind the tent.

- All meals are prepared by the camp cook. Mineral water is provided in camp and on game drives and the camp bar has wine, beer and soft drinks available for sale at reasonable prices.

- The big attraction is being in small campsites in exclusive wildlife conservancies with activity packed itineraries and excellent guides and with game drives in shared open-sided 4x4 safari vehicles, not vans.

- This camping safari has been designed to offer the same high quality wildlife safari experience provided by the top-end safari camps, with 4x4 game viewing escorted by top class guides and in exclusive wildlife conservancies away from the tourist minibuses, but at a hugely reduced price by staying in small basic adventure camps, “real camping” instead of the luxury accommodation of the expensive up-market tented lodges.

- The Gamewatchers Adventure Camps are sited in private conservancies with a wealth of wildlife and where you can go on walks with Maasai guides and take night drives but they are also conveniently located for easy access to the Maasai Mara Reserve.

Our Adventure Camping safaris are perfect for those for whom the wildlife safari experience is more important than the accommodation and who are prepared to sleep in small tents in sleeping bags on a mattress on the floor with an element of “roughing it”. This gives an opportunity for an exceptional and exclusive wildlife experience with high quality guiding but at a fraction of the price.
