Rooted within the expansive acres of the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, Mara Plains Camp is shrouded in a grove of Acacia trees beside the Ntiakitiak River. The wooden bridge that leads you into the secrecy of the camp’s understated splendour is a compelling sign of the adventure you’re about to experience.
The camp is a tribute to the Maasai, Arabian and Colonial cultures that have interwoven into the history of the land. Here pinned leather, copper and brass meet the ornate wooden carving of Arabic doors, draped in the crimsons and purples of the Maasai people. All of these elements meet in a combination of proud traditions, romantic discoveries and adventurous possibilities. The camp is built on raised platforms and uses cutting edge green technology to conserve energy and create sustainability and harmony within the land.
Guests unwind in one of the 7 tents available. These exquisite homes have been delicately crafted to bring comfort as well as a new appreciation for the cultural diversity that transcends ages, without outshining the marvels of nature. Children 8 years and older are welcome at Mara Plains, where the Family Suite holds ample room for these guests.
Wildlife and Activities
Early morning and evening safaris quietly lead guests into the majesty of the Kenyan wilderness. The area is exclusive and intimate, with a low density of tourism. This makes for an intimate experience of the elephants, leopards, cheetahs, lions and buck in their natural environment. Mara Plains is actively conscious of its footprint on the environment, taking great steps in order to keep the humble spirit of conservation alive.
Other activities include bush walks across the bridge and into the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, where the exhilaration of being this close to nature is only superseded by the bedrock safety your guides provide. Visits to the Maasai Mara community and hot air balloon rides are also available for guests seeking even more cultural and topographical understanding.
