Each of the seven tents has deep canvas canopied ceilings, rough hewn wood floors and accents of East Africa’s rich safari history. Thick Lamu wood doors, deep purples, and brass accents – these small details transport guests to a time and land far away. The well-appointed en-suite facilities (including a deep copper bath) plus the extensive private verandah complete what is genuinely a stunning concept.
Mara Plains Camp offers walking safaris (at additional cost) with the Olare Motorogi Conservancy warden, subject to prior booking and his availability. Hot air ballooning is also available at additional cost. This should be booked in advance and is subject to availability and additional cost. Departures are very early in the morning to allow time to transfer to the nearest launching point.
Game drives (day & night) take place in some of the Mara’s most coveted vehicles. Each of the four Toyota Land Cruisers is open-sided, canopied and customised for photographers (fold-down screens, raised roofs, photographic bars, multi-plug invertors). With just four to six guests each, the Cruisers also have fully-stocked fridges stocked with drinks and snacks. No two days are the same on safari. Game drives typically start at sunrise, returning for lunch and depart again in the mid-afternoon before returning just after sunset.
Mara Plains Camp Reviews
“Everything about this property is fabulous! The hosts, Holly & Ben were delightful – the food is amazing – the decor is gorgeous – and, our guide, Kevin, was the BEST. We decided Kevin should be called the “Lion Wisperer” because he was able to predict the animals behavior in almost all instances. We not only learned a lot, but also absolutely loved the whole experience!” – Wendy T
“This is one of the most wonderful lodges with a soul. All the staff from Holly and Ben to the F&B, Housekeeping staff and Guide K made us feel so special. K’s exhaustive knowledge of the wildlife and his anticipation resulted in some amazing action packed scenes. This is the only lodge I have seen which provides a high end camera and wildlife lens plus binoculars per room!” – J J
“Tents located in the river, you will sleep hearing all the nature sounds including the breathing and walking of the Hippos.
The staff is well trained, amazing food and choices. They organize breakfast in open field. The guides are expert you will have the chance to see many animals. Since the owners are professional photographers the camp will provide the use of professional cameras.” – Alemanila
