Mara Explorer

Experienced guides and a true safari experience

Mara Explorer, in the heart of the Masai Mara National Reserve, will have you exploring more than the riverine forest and the great plains of the East Africa Safari: the luxury, privacy and spectacular setting will leave your mind at rest and free to wander wherever it pleases. From your private deck or open-air Victorian tub overlooking the Talek River, your senses are bombarded with images, sounds, smells, textures and tastes.

The lodge has just 10 tented suites, each decorated with rustic safari mementoes and hand-crafted furniture; the dense riverside forest offers complete seclusion and the canvas walls offer an intimate exchange with the sounds of Africa. The living area at Mara Explorer features a spectacular deck that hovers over the river and regular visitors are the giraffe, elephant, hippo, antelope and nocturnal creatures. Food, wine and service rival that of city hotels and the best is still to come: a Masai Mara safari under the keen eye of your experienced guide.

Leave your private deck overlooking the river – it will be there when you get back and the journey into the Masai Mara will be well worth the effort. Mara Explorer offers private game drives with local guides who share their intimate knowledge of East Africa's famous wildlife, birds, trees, plants, insects, reptiles, geology, climate etc. Activities include two game drives a day, walking safaris in the Mara Conservation Area, guided tours of the Maasai villages supported by the Mara Explorer Camp, slide shows and presentations about the Maasai and wildlife including The Great Wildebeest Migration.
