Mara Plains Jahazi Suite

An intimate, two-bedroom exquisite, tented villa built entirely under canvas...


The brand new, intimate and exquisite Mara Plains Jahazi Suite is perfectly suited to experience the safari spectacle on offer in the Maasai Mara Reserve and the private Olare Motorogi Conservancy. The 2-bedroomed suite is on raised, recycled railway sleeper decking and offers guests incredible views of the steady stream of wildlife parading past whilst discreetly tucked away under the tree canopy.

Central to the Jahazi Suite offers an indoor dining area leading out to a prominent private outdoor verandah and flanked by two large bedrooms with en-suite facilities consisting of flush loo, double basins, indoor and outdoor showers, and luxurious baths. Ceiling fans over the guest’s bed and careful tent design maintain a comfortable climate for relaxation.

When residing at the Mara Plains Jahazi Suite, guests automatically enjoy the services of a host, chef, private game drive vehicle and guide.

The Mara Plains Jahazi Suite is located within our Mara Plains Camp which is proud to be one of only three Relais properties in Kenya, the others being our Mara Nyika Camp and our ol Donyo Lodge.

In the main camp area (an easy walk away), guests have the opportunity of visiting the bush boutique for retail therapy.

The Olare Motorogi Conservancy is reputed to have the lowest vehicle density in the Maasai Mara region while also having the highest concentration of big cats anywhere in Africa. There is only one guest bed per 350 acres, leaving the land unadulterated for the wildlife to roam and thrive, as nature intended. The camp is a sanctuary for resident species by day and night, including many of the Maasai Mara’s 300 bird species. After dark, larger mammals frequent the camp, and Maasai warriors escort guests to and from their rooms. Hippos snorting and leopards barking often provide the night’s chorus.

But most of all, Mara Plains is a showcase for one of the world’s most magnificent wildlife havens. We believe in keeping the safari experience intimate and personal, so there is no set camp schedule or set mealtimes. The guest’s preferences wildlife opportunities of the moment tailor the day’s activities and dining arrangements. Each guest tent has a set of professional Canon camera and lenses available to them. Add to it the pair of Swarovski binoculars, and it is impossible not to see and capture the region’s incredible wildlife scenes.
