Nestled in the Mara triangle in the Northern Serengeti, Mara Under Canvas is the ideal place from which to view one of nature’s greatest spectacles: the Great Wildebeest Migration. The closest camp to the Mara River, you’ll have front-row seats to one of the most intense river crossings of the migration. From here, you can watch thousands of wildebeest negotiate the waters in an attempt to avoid the jaws of hungry crocodiles and get to the green pastures on the other side.

Explore remote areas of the Serengeti on early morning and afternoon game drives, observing the abundant wildlife roaming the plains. Early birds will delight in the hot-air balloon safari, which gives you the chance to see the fauna and flora of this unique area from a different perspective. Visits to Moru and the Maasai Kopjes, islands of eroded rock in a sea of grassland, allow you to discover a new and unique ecosystem. End your days off sipping on a cocktail in front of Lake Masek.

Balancing seclusion and comfort, this temporary camp allows guests to experience an authentic African safari. Due to its remote location, the camp runs on solar electricity. Besides giving the camp its eco-friendly status, it allows guests to disconnect and leave the demands of everyday life behind while immersing themselves in the splendid isolation of the African bush.
