  • Type of Accommodation: Tented Camp
  • Comfort Level: Luxury


Mara Plains Camp is a small and private luxury tented camp in the Olare Motogori Conservancy, on the northern border of the Masai Mara National Reserve. It is an area rich in wildlife, and is particularly good for predators. Accommodating a maximum of 14 guests, the camp offers a private experience and personalised service.

Game drives are conducted in Olare Motogori and will deliver great wildlife sightings: there are only four guests per vehicle and rarely will you come across any other vehicles in this private concession. Your personal guide can also take you into the Masai Mara National Reserve, famed for its sensational wildlife and the wildebeest migration. Other activities include night game drives, hot-air balloon safaris (weather permitting) and visits to traditional Maasai villages.

The main area of the camp consists of two lounges for you to relax during the day. One includes a small library and writing area - the perfect place to write up your journal.

Sit by the open-air fire and sip a nightcap after dinnner as you listen to the local pride of lions begin their nightly rituals.

Photographers will enjoy the in-house photo station where you can download your images each day and receive feedback and tips from the camp's on-site experts.

General Facilities

    Laundry Service


Brunch and dinner at Mara Plains are enjoyed around a grand wooden table in the canvas dining room or on the outdoor deck overlooking the river.

Meal times are flexible, so you won't find yourself constrained to return to camp, for example, if you are on a game drive and come across a great wildlife sighting.


Mara Plains has seven spacious and uniquely designed canvas rooms which are built on a raised platform and have their own private veranda with views of the Mara plains. The rooms each have a private dressing area and an en suite bathroom with a double vanity, flush toilet and shower.
