About Mara Expedition Camp

Mara Expedition Camp is a place of learning, where Africa teaches lessons that will change the way you view the world in one of the most incredible classrooms on the planet – the incomparable Maasai Mara.

This is a place where lions own the night and hippos stake claim to vast territories, where we submit to the supreme power of wild Africa and take our lead from Mother Nature…

It’s a perfect hideout for this small, intimate camp, which has been constructed in the spirit of mobility and non-permanence out of deference to the wilderness, which surrounds it.

There’s an air of yesteryear in Mara Expedition Camp’s design, which 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 still leave you wanting for nothing. With flushing toilets, bucket showers and hot-and-cold running water, each tent is decorated with an eclectic yet co-ordinated 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’s out on the plains of the Maasai Mara and the adjacent Mara North Conservancy that guests really connect with Africa and live the explorer experience, 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.

Location

Located a few kilometers from Mara Plains, Mara Expedition Camp has been built on a small bend in the Ntiakitiak River, where a thick riverine forest meets the unending savannah in the north-central section of the Maasai Mara GAme Reserve.

How to get there

Mara Expedition Camp is primarily accessed by scheduled air transfers or private air charters. On arrival at the airstrip, the transfer to camp is approximately 45 minutes allowing time for game viewing en route.

Safarilink and/or Air Kenya offer scheduled daily flights from Nairobi’s domestic Wilson Airport to the Ol Kiombo airstrip inside the Maasai Mara Reserve. This airstrip is licensed for a wide range of aircraft including, but not limited to, King Air, Pilatus PC-12 and Cessna Caravan.

Flying distance from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport to Ol Kiombo is 390km and flying time in a Cessna Caravan is about an hour. Flying times depend on the type of aircraft being used and prevailing weather conditions.

When to go

The camp is open seasonally from June to October, allowing guests to maximise their safari experience within the Maasai Mara Reserve.
