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. It also prides itself on the little touches that make your safari so much more enjoyable, like cameras and binoculars in each room for you to use while out game viewing.

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.

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 or river. The rooms each have a private dressing area and an en suite bathroom with a double vanity, flush toilet, bathtub and shower.


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.


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.

Traveller Reviews

Mara Plains Camp

Kristi Swihart

This place was just incredible; truly gorgeous and the Camp Managers Sam and Rebecca were the best. I loved the social environment they facilitated with group dinners and evening bon fires and dinner drinks. They really acted as hosts as much as they did camp managers, and it just really elevated my whole experience there. My guide, Frank, at Mara Plains camp was also just a cut above. He had so so much knowledge of every animal, every creature and just knew where to go to find every animal. Frank was constantly scanning, constantly driving all over the place and just really made sure I had the best safari in the Mara.
