Overview of Speke’s Camp

Discover the unrivaled beauty of Kenya’s Maasai Mara from the comfort of an intimate, traditional safari camp. Tucked away under the trees that overhang the Olare Orok River on the boundary of the legendary Maasai Mara Reserve is Speke’s Camp. Family-run and unfenced, Speke’s focuses on an authentic African safari experience that focus on guest experiences and integrating seamlessly with their surroundings.

Embrace the luxury of freedom with an exclusive vehicle ready to venture into the reserve at any moment – be it an all-day affair, a stint with the early-risers, or a special sundowners drive. The entire experience is tailored to your schedule and desires but, especially if it’s your first safari, your highly skilled guides are happy to make suggestions. Embark on scintillating bush walks to learn about the area’s wildlife including safari legends, the infamous Big 5. For a bird’s eye view of the Mara eco-system, enjoy an unforgettable hot air balloon trip.

At night, retire to a traditional glamping tent complete with spacious en-suite bathrooms. In addition to a large, comfortable space, each tent enjoys a designated steward to look after you during your stay.

Mismatched sofas, Persian rugs, and traditional wooden furniture add to the camp’s endless character and charm.
