Situated on private land Mara Expeditions Camp has access to some of the region’s best wildlife. Reflecting the ambience and adventure of the early explorers the whole camp is under canvas, shaded by large African ebony trees and decorated with beautiful pieces of campaign furniture.
Intimate and secluded the camp has just 5 spacious canvas tents, ideal for travellers who are after a peaceful yet adventurous experience and love the feel of East Africa’s romantic safari era. Each light and airy tent has either a double or twin beds, sits on a slightly raised deck and has its own ensuite bathroom fitted with double brass basins and a huge brass safari shower. Hot water is provided on demand for showers whilst a thermos of hot water is always available at the vanities. Run by an impressive solar farm, the camp does have 24-hour electricity and there are British three-pin power points in each tent.
Mara Expedition Camp’s central lounge and dining area provide a perfect place to relax after a morning’s safari or to enjoy an after-dinner drink. For convenience there is tea and coffee station in the central tent while the outdoor fire pit is the ideal spot to chat with fellow travellers and reflect on the day’s adventures. Dinner is a romantic affair, either under canvas or under the stars, lit by candles or lanterns, and with delicious meals prepared by the talented camp chef.
The camp also has two complimentary professional Canon camera sets available and a limited number of binoculars for guests to use on a first-come basis during their stay. Though a more adventurous camp, guests at Mara Expedition Camp can expect some of the highest levels of both service and guiding within Kenya.
