Mara River Camp offers a traditional safari in a small and exclusive setting with just six tents and excellent game viewing in one of the most famous safari destinations in the world. With a strict cap on the the number of vehicles and visitors in the conservancy, the Mara North Conservancy has incredibly rich and diverse wildlife that can be enjoyed without large numbers of vehicles around.
Mara River Camp is located in the Mara North Conservancy, a pristine reserve of 74,000 acres, and is situated on the Olare Orak, a tributary of the Mara River. The Mara North Conservancy has one of the lowest densities of tourists in the greater Mara ecosystem so game drives are secluded without other vehicles vying for the same prime location when viewing game. Game drives in Land Rovers are led by Maasai guides and it is common to see the local pride of 17 lions while on drives. If you wish to spend an afternoon at camp, you won’t miss out on game viewing. Lion, leopard, elephant, and buffalo are regularly spotted around the camp.
Staying at Mara River Camp is reminiscent of bygone safari days with canvas tents and bucket showers. However modern amenities make your stay comfortable, with ensuite bathrooms, hot water, and flush toilets. Solar power provides 24-hour power to the tents, which are furnished with large, handmade cedar beds and fine linens. Two family tents with two bedrooms are also available for families traveling with children.
