In the heart of big game country, ultra-luxurious Mara Plains Camp sits on a bend of the Ntiakitiak River on the northern border of Kenya’s Masai Mara National Reserve. Awarded Relais & Châteaux status, this exquisite tented camp accommodates just 14 guests in 7 spacious and comfortable canvas-covered rooms on raised decks. There is also a glorious 2-bedroom suite ideal for family’s or couples travelling together.
The design and décor of the tents pay homage to the essence of East Africa. Swahili heritage is littered throughout the lodge, with accents of red honouring Maasai chiefs and warriors. To complement this, the campaign style furniture creates a lavish and comfortable atmosphere that doesn’t take away from the beauty of the surrounding wilderness. Throughout their stay, guests enjoy use of Swarovski binoculars and professional photography equipment. The rooms are connected to the main camp that houses a dining room, cosy lounge and al fresco dining area by the river. Similar to the rooms, décor throughout the property is a classy yet understated combination of colonial glamour, Maasai culture and Swahili traditions.
