Resting alongside a bend in the Ntiakitiak River, the rustic Mara Plains Camp overlooks the vast expanses of the Olare Motorogi Conservancy. A bridge over the river invites you to immerse yourself completely, as with each step you delve deeper into the natural wonder that is East Africa.

About Mara Plains Camp

Situated in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, on the northern border of the Masai Mara National Reserve, Mara Plains Camp is a cosy haven of understated charm and elegance. The camp embraces the rich diversity of cultures in the area, resulting in a retreat that underscores the natural beauty of the surrounding wilderness.

Blood reds and deep purples speak of the Maasai warriors, while the chunky wooden doors originate from the coastal island of Lamu. The rest of the décor borrows heavily from the Maasai and Arab cultures, as well as from the opulence of the colonial era.

Mara Plains Camp Accommodation

Mara Plains Camp consists of seven spacious wood and canvas tents; each boasting lavish furnishings finished in copper and rich leathers. Floor to ceiling mosquito nets allows you to experience the full effect of the plains and the abundance of wildlife living on your doorstep.

The luxurious tents offer a dressing area as well as an en-suite with breathtaking views. Savour the tranquil surrounds as you sink into the warmth of the deep copper bath. All tents have their own, private verandah, apart from tents 1 and 2, making them an ideal choice for a family. And tents are available that are more suited to people with limited mobility.
