Mara Plains Camp

A five star luxury Kenya safari to Mara Plains Camp

A subtle refuge for nature lovers in the midst of a wild African setting, the eco-conscious Mara Plains Camp ensures a five star luxury Kenya safari in the famous Masai Mara Game Reserve. Mara Plains Camp is a luxury Kenya safari lodge and the perfect combination of bush elegance and world-class game viewing experiences. 

Discover comfortable interiors, with floor-to-ceiling net walls that seem to invite the outside in. Spend time alongside qualified rangers and trackers as they explain intricate and fascinating animal behavior to you and answer any questions you may have about this diverse ecosystem. Seek out the smaller critters and the more elusive game on mind blowing nature walks and get aerial views of the unspoiled terrain on life-changing hot air balloon safaris.

Each guest at Mara Plains contributes considerably to the success of the Olare Motorogi Conservancy’s flourishing ecosystem simply by booking their once in a lifetime package holiday to Kenya. Conservation fees paid as part of your luxury accommodation getaway safeguard this habitat, while supporting over 1,000 Maasai families. This partnership agreement ensures the survival of an astounding volume and variety of wildlife and is the basis of a sustainable tourism ethic.

Overview

Mara Plains Camp is a one-of-a-kind, seven-tent camp located in the private 35,000-acre Olare Motorogi Conservancy, just on the northern boundary of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. This intimate camp, one of Kenya’s only two Relais & Chateaux properties (the other being its sister property, ol Donyo Lodge), blends the finest in wildlife viewing with world class safari hospitality and guiding. 

No other camp offers the extensive traversing area of Mara Plains Camp, with access to a total of 100,000 acres of private conservancy land as well as the world-renowned Maasai Mara, home to the Great Migration and no other camp has the same warm staff and setting! A package tour to this gorgeous, tented safari destination feels like a return to a family reunion in a natural setting that holds the space so perfectly, no expectations, just being. 

We love Mara Plains Camp for its spot deep in a forest on the meandering bends of the Ntiakitiak River, and the careful thought that has been given to every detail. The camp is not an imposition on the landscape, but rather a subtle refuge among the wild animals, observing them as they go about daily survival. The camp has been created to become a part of the visual beauty of the ecosystem, part of the sweeping views across the plains. Guests are enraptured on arrival when they see that one acacia tree symbolising Africa in all respects. The main guest areas include the dining tent, the library to catch up on wildlife and birding knowledge, and soft couches and chairs for pure relaxation. 

Each of the seven tents features deep canvas canopied ceilings, rough-hewn wooden floors and accents of East Africa’s rich safari history. Thick Lamu wood doors, deep purples, and brass accents reminiscent of long ago colonial safari days. Cool off in the deep copper bath then sip tea on the private deck where solar power provides all your power needs. 

Exploring Olare Motorogi Conservancy is a treat thanks to the lack of other vehicles and the prevalence of more wild cats here than anywhere else in Kenya.  After dark, larger mammals frequent the camp and Maasai warriors escort guests to and from their rooms as hippos snort and leopards bark, providing the night’s chorus.

Pack your bags and choose one of our irresistible tours to the Masai Mara, staying in Mara Plains Camp then combining this retreat with a few days in Tanzania’s Serengeti to view the Great Migration. We offer the best rates in Africa.
