Sat on a bend in the Ntiakitak River, Mara Expeditions Camp is a sweet and intimate tented camp, where safari meets comfort. Although less lavish than its sister property Mara Plains, Mara Expeditions has a comfortable 'safari feel' to it. Open seasonally between June and October, the camp maximises the safari experience as it's in the prime location to see the great migration, which often passing right in front of the tents!


The camp is set in the northern plains of the Masai Mara National Reserve, bordering the Olare Motorogi Conservancy. As the camp sits on the bend of the Ntiakitak River, the bushy environment provides plenty of shade and privacy… a beautiful combination with the peace and serenity of this area of the Mara.


The mess tent has a cosy lounge area with a wide verandahh and comfortable hammocks overlooking the river. The dining area is next to the lounge, also with a view and an open-air and communal feel. The camp has five en-suite tents, all well spread in the bush either side of the mess for peace and privacy. If three or more tents are booked, the camp can be exclusive to the group.


The tents are very comfortable and spacious, each with their own en-suite and wide verandah overlooking the river. Each tent has 24-hour electricity, charging plugs, running water and a memorable bucket shower experience.


From the camp, game drives, visits to authentic local villages, local schools and Great Plains community projects in the surrounding conservancies can all be organised. Similarly to its sister property, the camp is great for photography lovers, as professional Canon camera and lenses are available to use during their stay. Photos from the trip will be download and given on departure, to remember the perfect trip by!


If you book three of the five tents, you get the camp to yourself!

A little pricey for the size and facilities
