Set in a private conservancy offering outstanding predator densities with the camp itself just 20 metres from northern boundary of the Masai Mara National Reserve, Mara Plains camp is a peaceful, exclusive tented camp located in the 32900 acre Olare Motorogi Conservancy.
The camp is secluded, and it isn’t until just before you cross the memorable and grand swing bridge steps that it 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.
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.
The camp caters for only 14 guests in seven uniquely designed octagonal canvas rooms. Each is raised on decks, and opens on three 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.
The Fully inclusive accommodation covers all scheduled activities, meals, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages (excluding imported and premium drinks). Park fees & flights are additional.
Mara Plains offers a range of activities – early morning and late afternoon and night game drives, balloon safaris (at extra cost), authentic local village visits and unrivalled access to superior wildlife habitats.
The camp is open all year round and is accessible by daily scheduled flights from Nairobi’s Wilson airport to the Ol Kiombo airstrip approximately 30 minutes drive from the camp. Private air charters can land on the Conservancy’s private airstrip approximately 15 minutes drive from camp.
