Mara Expedition Camp is another sister camp to Mara Plains Camp and sits right in the epicentre of awesome predator country in the Mara North Conservancy just to the north of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. With only Six custom designed tents set in a grove of acacia trees overlooking a valley, this is a very intimate camp indeed with outstanding game viewing.
Mara Expedition Camp is well known for its leopard residents wandering nearby and is positioned to take excellent advantage of two migrations – the famous Mara Serengeti migration and the green season migration from Loita Plains. The game viewing here is outstanding. Full days out with picnics over some of Africa’s richest game country which is renowned for extraordinary predator density and frequent hunts. The game vehicles are totally open-sided and come fully-equipped with a stocked fridge and photography tools. Hot-air ballooning over the Mara is also available at additional cost. If culture is of interest, then visits to Maasai bomas as well as local school and community projects (supported by the Great Plains Foundation) are possible, and a wonderful insight.
Mara expedition camp has six safari chic light and airy, spacious canvas tents with en-suite bathrooms. One of these is a two-bedroom family unit. All have en-suite facilities including flush loos and tapped hot and cold water and huge brass safari showers. The interiors are very much of the campaign style which harks back to a bygone era of exploration. The central lounge, dining & bar area are located under the grove of African acacia trees and is lit by lantern and candlelit for an authentic safari feel. Why not cool off in the unique plunge pool made from an old safari truck!
