Mara Expedition

A journey of discovery where lessons learned will change your life and the way you view the world…



Located a few kilometers from Mara Plains, Mara Expedition Camp is set on a small bend in the Ntiakitiak River, where a thick riverine forest meets the unending savannah of the Maasai Mara. A place where lions own the night and hippos stake claim to their territories, the setting is the perfect hideout for this small, intimate camp, constructed with deference to the wilderness that surrounds it.

Mara Expedition Camp’s design draws stylistic reference from the old, authentic expedition camps of the colonial era. Temporary and transient in atmosphere, there is nonetheless a perfect blend of comfort, adventure and harmony in the camp’s five, custom-designed tents.

Set at ground level and shaded by the forest canopy, the tents forego fancy amenities but leave you wanting for nothing. With flushing toilets, cold running water and bucket showers, each tent is decorated with an eclectic yet coordinated assembly of what early explorers may have carried with them – brass chandeliers, old Indian campaign chests, rich leather and hardwood furniture – combined with rich textiles and soft cottons. But it is out on the plains of the Maasai Mara and the adjacent Mara North Conservancy that guests really connect with Africa and are surrounded by wildlife.

The camp is in prime leopard territory and the annual wildebeest and zebra migration passes literally in front of your tent, offering you the chance to witness one of the miracles of nature first-hand from the comfort of your verandah.
