Mara Plains Camp

The Mara Plains Camp is in a great location in the Olare Orok Conservancy, just a short distance from the Mara Reserve and Mara North Conservancy boundaries (no fences), Mara Plains Camp is best placed to explore all three areas. And with just 7 luxury tents is among the finest lodges in the Mara ecosystem, located on the shady Ntiakitiak River overlooking the plains.

The Mara Plains Camp - The Details

The Mara Plains Camp is in fact it's the only camp that can traverse both the OOC and Mara North Conservancies, which during peak migration season is full of animals without the vehicle crowds.  In the conservancies too clients can enjoy night drives in our very high, open-sided vehicles, and walking.  Guests wanting to see a river crossing in peak season are also well placed and as game drives and timings are entirely at guests wishes they can have a whole day out without returning to camp.  The game viewing in the OOC is spectacular with resident lion, cheetah and leopard populations.
The guiding at Mara Plains is amongst the best in Kenya - to a Gold Grade standard.  Our camp management couple, Richard and Lorna, and their team are brilliant.  Lorna, when she has time, will accompany guests and give photographic tips and also take photos of clients on safari with her own camera, which she'll download for guests to a CD for their departure.  Food is excellent.
Mara Plains was one of the founding camps to introduce a new system of paying Maasai stakeholders a flat fee, regardless of bed-night occupancies, which has not only improved their lives but also in return improved the environment and wildlife in these new conservancies.

Mara Plains - Reviews

This is probably the best camp I have ever stayed at! The rooms were drop dead gorgeous with great views of wildlife from the comfort of your own bed! The game was spectacular with great sightings of lion and cheetah and thousands of wildebeest. A truly amazing camp!
