Luxury Holidays At Mara Plains Camp

As a member of the Great Plains Conservation association and classed as a Unique Lodge of the World, by National Geographic, the Mara Plains Camp adheres to a series of responsibilities related to preserving the landscape, protecting big cats and savannah wildlife, supporting local communities, plus promoting responsible tourism. Located on the northern border of the Maasai Mara, the discrete and intimate Mara Plains Camp, owned by renowned conservationist family the Jouberts, consists of a main lodge with just seven beautiful, unique canvas tents. Raised on decks, these traditionally-styled safari tents have an airy marquis ceiling and provide sweeping views of the savannah. Also boasting an impressive restaurant and a game reserve, this Relais & Chateaux property has accommodation located amongst the lush vegetation on the banks of the Ntiakitiak River - enabling guests to be close to the heart of the bush and local wildlife. With free-standing copper baths, large decks surrounded by trees and classic furnishings, guests can enjoy stylish comfort and privacy whilst being in the heart of the bush.

Property Highlights:+
Romance

Mara Plains Camp is perfect for a romantic safari escape. The camp only accommodates up to fourteen guests at a time, meaning that you've almost got the place to yourself. Budding photographers who choose Mara Plains Camp will be thrilled by the range of photography tuition available in one of the most photogenic locations in the world, with specialist photography workshops lasting three days. In addition, you can enjoy 4x4 private dining experiences in the bush, with a butler on hand to proffer refreshments, and lamp-lit private dining on the deck of your romantic, prospector-style, luxury tent. Simple, authentic African wedding ceremonies can also be arranged, with the relevant organisation and arrangements put in place beforehand.

Safari

Lodge activities include traditional game-drives, guided walking-safaris, archery, cultural excursions, tracking and, of course, sightings of the 'Big Five' and mass migration of wildebeest (seasonal). As one of the smallest camps in the region, this private 35,000-acre Olare Motorogi Conservancy, bordering Kenya's Maasai Mara National Reserve to the south, enjoys a low density of vehicles and an abundance of big cats. Don't miss out on an incredible photograph opportunity, as each tent is provided with a professional Canon camera and lenses. Help spot animals with a pair of Swarovski binoculars, making it impossible to miss the region's astonishing wildlife.

Culture & History

Along with the rich fertile ground supporting a myriad of wildlife, visitors may also catch a glimpse of the native Maasai people, adorned in crimson cloth and colourful rings of beads. Learn about these proud guardians of the land, who provide a fascinating cultural distinction for the region, if you visit a nearby Maasai village (locally known as an 'enkang'), presenting a striking African highlight. Purchase delightful locally produced crafts at the camp, proceeds of which go toward the local community, especially women's groups and schools.
