Set in a glade of beautiful acacia trees, Mara Expedition Camp, boasts six tents designed around the expedition theme with large public areas, including a show kitchen. The tents offer plumbed-in hot and cold water for showers. The camp is located on the border of the Maasai Mara National Reserve and the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, with access to both the National Reserve and Mara North Conservancy.

Because the camp is set on private land, you can enjoy fantastic guided walks as a unique option. Spend your days on safari in some of Africa’s richest game country, following the annual wildebeest and zebra migration in both the Maasai Mara and private Mara North Conservancy on game drives , seeking out leopards in the ebony woodland along the river or soaring over the plains in a hot air balloon. Return to camp after sunset for a refreshing shower before a lantern and candlelit dinner in the dining tent, and a night listening to the sounds of the bush.

The whole camp has a tiny footprint and, if it were to be deconstructed, would leave almost no trace. All materials used in its construction are green or recycled from elsewhere and all of the energy is solar, with solid waste being sent to Nairobi for recycling. Paper and combustibles are used in the lighting of fires for the wood heaters when needed.
