Mara Plains Camp
About Mara Plains Camp
Imagine a camp set right in the heart of some of the greatest predator country of Africa. This is Mara Plains Camp, located on the northern border of the Masai Mara Game Reserve in the 30,000-acre Olare Orok Conservancy. 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.
Mara Plains Camp is a small, high quality, seven-roomed camp under canvas and on raised decks, with sweeping views across Kenya’s notable savannahs. It is among the smallest and most personal camps in the Masai Mara region and is just one of three camps currently operating within the Olare Orok Conservancy, which boasts the region’s lowest vehicle density with no mini-buses, and only one guest room per 700 acres.
Here, it is possible to avoid the high tourist density of the Masai Mara Game Reserve proper, if desired. In total, guests of Mara Plains have access to over 100,000 acres of low-density vehicle tourism lands as well as an additional 375,000 acres within the Masai Mara Game Reserve itself.
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 feature a dressing area as well as private verandas with seating and exquisite views, while the en-suite facilities consist of a double basin vanity, flush toilet and shower.
The fresh air, getting on and off vehicles and walking will incite an appetite and there’s no going hungry here. Complementary refreshments and snacks are served on all our drives and include tea and coffee on the morning drive and the traditional sundowner cocktail in the late afternoon.
Mara Plains offers possibly the widest range of activities anywhere in the greater Masai Mara, including early morning and late afternoon and night game drives, balloon safaris, authentic local village visits, and unrivalled access to superior wildlife habitats.
