GREAT PLAINS MARA EXPEDITION CAMP - MASAI MARA RESERVE
Mara Expedition Camp sits in a private area on a small bend in the Ntiakitiak River where thick forest meets savannah and where you can enjoy the intense action of the Maasai Mara ecosystem as well as the more private 70,000 acre Mara North Conservancy. The camp is a stylish adventure camp which offers specialised guiding and just five light and airy, spacious canvas tents each with ensuite bathrooms where you can enjoy piping hot water from huge brass ‘safari showers’ to a chorus of hippos lazing nearby.
Mara Expedition Camp is located in the Mara North Conservancy just outside the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya.
Mara Expedition is a stylish and comfortable adventure camp with leather and canvas touches and just five custom-designed tents of light coloured flowing canvas open on the horizontal side with canopied ceilings. The tents are set on slightly raised decking and shaded by the riverine forest.
Each tent has ensuite facilities including flush loos, bucket showers with hot water from huge brass showerheads and tapped cold water. The tents are decorated with a theme of the early safari exploration and discovery with brass chandeliers, old Indian chests and local natural materials.
ACTIVITIES AND WILDLIFE
The camp is locally famous for its leopard residents wandering the riverbanks and is positioned to take best advantage of two migrations – the famous annual Serengeti migration and the green season migration from Loita Plains.
