Introducing Mara Toto Camp

Mara Toto Veranda

We are pleased to announce the opening of Mara Toto Camp in the greater Masai Mara ecosystem.

Meaning “baby” in Swahili, the name Toto refers to the camp’s status as the smaller sister property of the established and highly acclaimed Mara Plains Camp. Mara Toto Camp is located in the north central Masai Mara Game Reserve, on the border of the Olare Orok & Mara North Conservancies. It has an idyllic setting in a small bend in the Ntiakitiak River, just a few kilometres downstream from Mara Plains.

Mara Toto bedThis is the heart of Big Cat country, and guests can spend full days exploring the 70,000 acre private Mara North Conservancy where there is a very low tourist density, or head into the famous Masai Mara Game Reserve for its spectacular scenes of river crossings and the game-filled Topi Plains.

Game drives are by 4×4 open-sided safari vehicles and guests also have the opportunity to visit villages, schools and community projects. Magical hot air balloon rides can also be arranged (at additional cost).Mara Toto vanity

The camp consists of just five luxury en-suite tents under the shade of the riverine forest. The tents have been beautifully designed in a style reminiscent of the early days of safari exploration with the decor from local natural materials and hand-picked furnishings such as brass chandeliers and old Indian chests. The tents have flush toilets, safari showers, plumbed water, 24 hour electricity and private decks overlooking the river.

Mara Toto Camp is ideal for guests who are looking for a safari adventure away from the crowds with the comfort and intimacy of a small luxury camp.

3 Nights for the Price of 2!

As an introduction to this beautiful camp, we are offering a ‘stay 3 pay for 2’ special from March 1 – May 31, 2013. Valid for new bookings only. 

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
