Understatement and intimacy intermingle at the Mara Plains Camp, bolstering the natural beauty of its riverine forest setting in the heart of the Olare Motorogi Conservancy. Luxurious elegance radiates from every inch of the East Africa-influenced architecture of this striking camp, one of only five camps in this wildlife-rich region bordering the Maasai Mara Game Reserve.
Mara Plains Camp has unrivalled access to the low-vehicle density tourism land of the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, giving guests a chance to witness a vast number of wildlife species without the crowds of other reserves. As one of the only camps in the Maasai Mara region to boast open game drive vehicles, the camp offers many striking photographic opportunities and up-close-and-personal encounters with the wildlife.
Paying homage to both the colonial era – in its red leather, copper, and brass touches – and Maasai and Arab culture – in the accents of deep purple and large wooden doors – the seven under canvas tents display an attractive elegance. Add to that private verandahs and exquisite en-suite bathrooms and you get an understated luxury to rival any camp in Kenya.
