Mara Nyika Camp

Explore the vast private and exclusive 50 000-acre Naboisho Conservancy, immerse yourself in the great migration.



Mara Nyika, meaning “Large Plains or Great Plains,” is an intimate tented camp set in a valley, straddling a small stream on the western side of the private Naboisho Conservancy bordering Kenya’s Maasai Mara.
Mara Nyika’s light-coloured canvas tents sit under the canopy of umbrella thorn trees, offering guests views across the plains. Walkways from the tents to the main area evoke the feeling of a treehouse under canvas, and the camp’s ethic and inspiration are one of exploration and adventure. Privacy is the key to Mara Nyika. Privacy to live, think, explore, be romantic and be pampered – all the while with one of the most spectacular backdrops Africa can provide.
Mara Nyika, one of the newest Relais & Châteaux member properties in Kenya,  offers guests a choice of 3 luxury guest suites in addition to 2 x 2-bedroom family suites.
Mara Nyika allows guests to explore the private and exclusive 50,000-acre Naboisho Conservancy, the second largest conservancy in the greater Maasai Mara region. “Naboisho” means “coming together” in the Maasai’s Maa language and represents the 500 local landowners who came together to establish the conservancy. The conservancy model combines the conservation of nature, cultural heritage with tourism, enhancing of livelihoods of the local communities. Each guest’s stay supports over 500 Maasai families with a sustainable livelihood and helps to ensure the conservation of this vital corner Maasai Mara eco-system.
Many guests may opt to spend a few days in Mara Nyika combined with a stay at either Mara Expedition Camp, Mara Toto Camp or Mara Plains Camp. This allows guests to experience all three wildlife areas, namely the private Olare Motorogi and Naboisho Conservancies and Maasai Mara Reserve. Each wildlife experience from our camps is unique and offers a different face of the incredible greater Maasai Mara ecosystem.
