Mara Plains Camp

Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya

One of only five camps in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, we love Mara Plains Camp’s intimacy – there’s truly nothing more exciting than getting off the beaten track in Africa. Surrounded by endless plains abundant in magnificent big cats, this camp offers a luxurious take on being in the wilderness.

Mara Plains Camp certainly vamps up the feeling of luxury with its main mess tent interiors whilst the suspension bridges and railway sleeper decks add a colonial twist. We love the quirky contrast of rustic wooden dining tables with brass chandeliers and plush leather sofas, offering a lavish setting for watching incredible leopard and cheetah saunter by.

There are only seven octagonal canvas tents altogether; creating a charming exclusive ambience. All of the tents are hidden away on raised decking, with floor-to-ceiling net walls creating an airy vibe and offering panoramic views of the Mara Plains or the Hippo pod. We love the opulent décor, from the Persian rugs and large copper standalone bath, to the antique chests and expansive verandas. During your stay, enjoy the use of the camps binoculars and cameras – the guides are trained to use these so can help you take the perfect holiday photos.

With so many phenomenal big cats roaming close by, the game drives here are very spectacular. That’s not all though – with the offers of walking safaris, night drives, balloon safaris and bush picnics, Mara Plains Camp offers a myriad of ways to really immerse you in Africa’s natural beauty.

This camp is well suited to families, the large tents can comfortable accommodate an extra bed and the family unit can sleep up to five, two large tents on the same decking, separated by a few metres. Children will love the Young Explorers Club where they can learn about the local wildlife, identify animal tracks, learn bush survival skills and make bows and arrows.
