This exclusive tented camp occupies the southern banks of the Talek River, where four of the Masai Mara’s prime gameviewing areas converge. There are just 10 luxurious river-facing tents in total at Mara Explorer Camp, each furnished with four-poster beds, antique storage chests and open-air claw-footed bathtubs with views over the African bush.
Dining at Mara Explorer Camp takes place in an atmospheric riverside dining area, which adjoins a plush lounge and well-stocked library. Guests are also able to use the freeform swimming pool or purchase souvenirs and other essentials at neighbouring sister camp Mara Intrepids.
Private guided game drives take place three times a day within the Masai Mara Game Reserve – in open-sided vehicles, and guests also have the option to participate in walking safaris led by a resident Maasai naturalist in the Mara Conservation Area. Optional activities off-site include a hot air balloon safari over the plains and cultural excursions to nearby Maasai communities.
