Mara Nyika, a sister camp to Mara Plains, gives guests the opportunity to experience the African wilderness in a private and pristine setting.

Property Details

Succumb to the romance of East Africa’s vast open plains at Mara Nyika. Elegant necks of grazing giraffes stand in contrast to dark, rumbling clouds in the distance. Wildebeest and zebras call to each other at twilight. “Simba” the great lions’ roars thunder across the sky.

Light canvas flaps in the gentle breeze. Visiting Mara Nyika, it is easy to imagine a time when explorers braved this untouched world. Today’s visitors experience it with modern day comforts. Each of the four solar powered suites accommodating up to eight guests links to the main area by walkways. Feel like a kid again in the tree-house style tents set among flat-topped Acacia trees. Inside, you will find an en suite shower with dressing area and overhead ceiling fans. From your suite, you will enjoy outstanding views of the Masai Mara landscape that’s ripe for safari adventure. This area is an important route along the Great Migration.

Professional cameras and lens are provided in each tent which are useful to capture all the wildlife you will encounter on morning and afternoon game dries and bird watching excursions. Time between game drives is spent thinking, exploring, feeling pampered, and romanticizing about this spectacular African backdrop.

Food at the camp is tasty and fresh, crafted to offer much-needed nourishment after a day on safari. At dinner, clink your glasses in a toast to the unbelievable wilderness surrounding Mara Nyika.

Explore the private and exclusive Naboisho Conservancy and Masai Mara Reserve on 4×4 vehicle safari drives. Your visit helps to support over 500 Masai families with a sustainable livelihood, ensuring the conservation of the precious wildlife and eco-system. You will have the opportunity to meet with the local Masai and learn about their fascinating way of life.
