Tangulia Mara Camp is a traditional safari camp built on a rocky hill, situated on private land on the western boundary of the Mara Reserve, allowing easy access to game drive around the Musiara Marsh, the short grass plains, and Rhino Ridge, in the reserve or across the Mara River bridge into the Mara Triangle west of the river. Both areas have rich biodiversity and offer prime wildlife and big cat viewing; and, during the migration, ready access to some of the main river-crossing places. Guided walks on the slopes of the escarpment outside the reserve, and experiencing the warmth and hospitality of the nearby village are great attractions for guests.
Jackson Looseyia and Dominic Nchoe have partnered in TANGULIA MARA CAMP, wholly owned by them, and operated with our Maasai team.
Their motivation is to demonstrate that Community Conservation can be “home owned,” it is a great alternative to the traditional cattle-owning way of life of our people and recognises the potential on our doorstep.
They chose the name Tangulia – meaning “to lead” as there Vision Statement.
With over twenty-five years of guiding visitors to the Mara they are more than qualified to give there guests a truly authentic insight to Maasai culture, customs, beliefs, and knowledge of the fauna and flora here.
They have expansive views south and eastward across the Mara.
Raised on floors of Talek flat stone, each has a thatched roof, verandah, sleeping tent with a double and a single bed and a permanent en-suite bathroom with shower, basin, and flush toilet.
Hot and cold water is piped to each tent from our hilltop storage tanks. Solar lighting and a Wi-Fi hotspot complete the amenities.
Their chef takes great pride in his culinary expertise, learned over many years of catering to an international clientele
