As one of only four camps in the expansive wilderness of the Olare Orok Conservancy of the Masai Mara ecosystem, guests are guaranteed a memorable game viewing experience at Mara Plains Camp. Built by National Geographic Explorers-in-Residence Dereck and Beverly Joubert and their partners at Great Plains Conservation, Mara Plains Camp is at once elegant and unassuming. The seven elevated tents and the main camp area are crafted of rough-hewn wooden floors and billowing canvas and filled with an exquisite collection of furnishings and decor that recall the colonial influences of bygone centuries, as well as Kenya’s Swahili and Masai roots. Whether you come for the thundering wildebeest, the rainbow-coloured birds, or to experience the culture of the Masai, the camp is the perfect setting for immersing yourself in the beauty of the East African savannah. This stylish and secluded camp is accessed by walking over a wide bridge. Two lounges, incorporating a library area, and the dining area also have stunning views and dinners are often savoured under the stars.
