Mara Expedition Camp
Mara Expedition Camp sits in a small bend in the Ntiakitiak River where thick forest meets the open savannah. The camp is just a few kilometres from its sister camp, Mara Plains. Here, you will experience the best of both safari and game viewing areas. The intense action of the Maasai Mara ecosystem as well as the private 70,000-acre Mara North Conservancy.
Mara Expedition Camp is an adventure camp that is unique to the industry. It fits the service levels of specialised guiding and design that has become associated with Great Plains Conservation. Five spacious canvas tents, each with en-suite bathrooms where you enjoy piping hot water from huge brass safari showers. A chorus of Hippos lazing in the nearby river serenade the experience. The camp is set down low, hidden from lights and noise and any sign of mankind.
Under a grove of African Ebony trees the main area is lit by lantern and candlelight. Simple in it’s design but providing just enough for all the comforts a visitor would expect. Mara Expeditions Camp is famous for it’s resident Leopard’s wandering the riverbanks. The camp has been positioned to make the most of two migrations. The famous annual Serengeti migration and the green season migration from Loita Plains. Over 50,000 Wildebeest and 100,000 Zebra vying for grazing rights.
Mara Expedition Camp is a place for the passionate safari enthusiast. Full days with picnic breakfast, often lunch as well to traverse some of Africa’s richest game country. This area is renowned for extraordinary predator densities and frequent sightings of hunts. Access to both the Masai Mara Reserve and Mara North Conservancy give guests options of more privacy
