Masai Mara safaris to Mara Explorer Tented Camp

The ultimate wilderness retreat, Mara Explorer Tented Camp provides discerning guests with the perfect combination of delectable cuisine, spacious living space and sensational wildlife experiences into Kenya’s world renowned Masai Mara Game Reserve. 

Be enchanted with the spectacular, untamed surroundings while you leisurely soak in your outdoor bathtub. The position of the camp ensures you are not left out of the action even when you decide to stay in. Venture out with an expert guide and discover smaller animals on nature walks. Opt for a bird’s eye view of the incredible terrain on a hot air balloon. Mara Explorer Tented Camp is an exclusive five star tented camp with only ten units. It sits in the centre of the Masai Mara with exceptional game.

The name of this luxurious tented camp hints at the main activity in these parts – exploring the Masai Mara in all its wild glory – ideally located on a lush bend in the Talek River with ultimate sightings of the Great Migration if you come from July to September. Only 10 elegant, tented suites are spread out along the river banks, open air bedrooms with superb deck spaces and sublime African décor.  Watch the hippos, elephants and antelope jostling at the water’s edge while you soap yourself down! 

Voyage2Africa designs outrageously affordable package tours to the famed Maasai Mara and we include safari lodge accommodation that suits your needs and budget – the Mara Explorer being one of our favourites! 



Mara Explorer Tented Camp features 10 sumptuous and well-spaced tents overlooking the Talek River in Kenya all decked out in colonial-style safari décor, and open-air Victorian bathtubs. Stay right where you are to view the wildlife at the river all day and become immersed in the Great Migration when it passes by during July to September. 

Find this epic rustic yet elegant safari camp in the middle of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, 5 hours’ drive from Nairobi and just a quick drive from the airstrip. Enjoy the ethnic feel of the camp, because you are in Maasai land and you will explore local villages as part of your Kenya safari tour.  

Hospitable friendly staff care about your every need and serve delicious meals three times a day – awaken with a dawn breakfast, taste lunches in the bush if you are out and about and dine in the cosy dining tent with river views after a thrilling nocturnal game drive. The bar tent is a popular gathering area for guests and game guides so have your questions ready! 

Think about a hot air balloon safari over the rolling grasslands and smooth hills where prides of majestic lions lurk, waiting for zebra and wildebeest to run past. Look out for the great herds of beasts like buffalo and elephant and maybe a spotted hyena will put on a show for you. Boat cruises, village tours and birding excursions add immense value to your safari at Mara Explorer and you certainly are the explorer in this region!
