Mara Plains — Kenya
Set in one of the most wildlife-rich areas of Kenya, then Mara Plains Camp is truly blessed. The camp is located on a bend in the Ntiakitiak River in the heart of the 35,000-acre Olare Motorogi Conservancy, bordering Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve to its south. One of only four camps on the Conservancy, guests at Mara Plains have unrivaled access to more than 100,000 acres of exclusive, low-density tourism land. The Conservancy is home to extensive areas of important habitat for a vast number of wildlife species, and has unfettered access to the Masai Mara’s additional 375,000 acres.
WHAT WE THINK…
Add to this cultural melting pot a nod to the colonial era, with rich leathers, copper and brass used in expedition-style campaign furniture and you have a lavish, residential atmosphere which complements, rather than overwhelms the surrounding wilderness. With accommodation for only 14 guests, a stay at Mara Plains is an exclusive experience.
The Olare Motorogi Conservancy where Mara Plains is located is leased from the local Masai community and conservation fees directly support more than 1,000 families – a partnership which ensures the survival of an astounding volume and variety of wildlife while enriching the local community.
Why Mara Plains?
Safari your way – Mara Plains will tailor your safari according to your expectations. Early morning, late afternoon and night game drives in an open, 4×4 vehicle, and local village visits are included in your stay. Balloon flights across the Masai Mara are at an additional cost.
Experiencing the Great Migration is a must – resident game is great year round, but certain times of the year vast herds can be found right at the camp’s doorstep.
Private concession – put on your hiking boots and enjoy a guided bush walk, or enjoy a night drive. These types of activities are only possible in private concessions.
