Mara Plains Camp is in an extraordinary location on the Ntiakatek River, a mere two kilometres from the Masai Mara's north-central border. Upon arriving at Mara Plains Camp, it is immediately clear that this is a unique place. The camp is secluded, and it isn't until just before you cross the memorable and grand swing bridge steps that it reveals itself. Once across the river, and under the cool shade of the trees, there is a lovely open grass area leading to the main area.

Overview



Welcome to Mara Plains Camp

Imagine a camp set right in the heart of some of the greatest predator country of Africa...

This is Mara Plains Camp, located on the northern border of the Masai Mara Game Reserve in the 30,000 acre Olare Orok Conservancy. Rarely a night passes without lion roaring nearby, while leopard are regularly found to wander through the camp and cheetah have established territories on the savannah nearby the main area.

Mara Plains Camp is a small, high quality, seven-roomed camp under canvas and on raised decks with sweeping views across Kenya's notable savannahs. It is among the smallest and most personal camps in the Masai Mara region. It is just one of three camps currently operating within the Olare Orok Conservancy, which boasts the region's lowest vehicle density with no mini-buses, and only one guest room per 700 acres!

Here, it is possible to avoid the high tourist density of the Masai Mara Game Reserve proper, if desired. In total, guests of Mara Plains have access to over 100,000 acres of low-density vehicle tourism lands as well as an additional 375,000 acres within the Masai Mara Game Reserve itself.

Mara Plains offers possibly the widest range of activities anywhere in the greater Masai Mara – early morning and late afternoon and night game drives, balloon safaris (at extra cost), authentic local village visits and unrivalled access to superior wildlife habitats.
