  • Mara Plains Camp has gone to extensive measures to minimize their impact on the environment - from solar power to waste management

  • Enter a new world as you cross the Ntiakitiak River and gaze out over the endless plains of the Maasai Mara as it stretches out before your eyes. With only four other camps in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, relish in the exclusivity of Mara Plains.

  • Recline in luxury on your private deck, sipping on champagne while the outdoor lavish bath tub fills and lions laze in the distant shade of acacia trees.

  • Witness the epic vision of thousands of wildebeest as they thunder across the Maasai Mara, one of nature’s great events where a game drive from Mara Plains puts you in the heart of the action.

Located on the Ntiakatek River, in the northern border of the Maasai Mara, within the 30,000 acre Olare Orok Conservancy and being one of only three camps in this conservancy Mara Plains has the lowest vehicle density in the region.

The beautiful camp is situated in a game rich area, and at night you can often hear the sounds of lion roaring or in the morning see traces of leopard that walked through during the night. As it is in a private conservancy guests can go for bush walks and night game drives, all of which can be arranged as and when you wish. There are no set rules or time schedules allowing you to tailor your stay to your personal preferences.

On morning game drives you will have the opportunity for a bush breakfast. Eat a sumptuous feast in the peaceful surroundings of the African bush. Evening game drives will feature the infamous sundowner - a long tradition in Africa where you enjoy a delicious drink, accompanied with some freshly made snacks while the sun is setting. The perfect end to an exciting day.
