Room types at Mara Expedition Camp
2-Bedroom Family Tent
The 2-Bedroom Family canvas tent is custom-designed and sits on a slightly raised platform. It consists of two bedrooms, each with their own separate bathroom, dressing and washbasin areas;
It is safari chic with five light and airy, spacious canvas tents, each with en-suite bathrooms where you enjoy hot water from huge brass safari showers. It is set down low, hidden from lights and noise from other camps or properties or any sign of mankind. Under the grove of Africa ebony trees, its humble main area is lit by lantern and candlelit, simple in design, but just enough for all the comforts.
Activities at Mara Expedition Camp
The Naboisho Women's Group cultural experience is supported by the Great Plains Foundation, enabling the group to purchase raw materials in bulk including a tailor hired to work on leather products. Available to guests staying at Great Plains Conservation camps all profits from the sale of their wares are ploughed back into the women's business training to ensure this group is self-sustainable. Items available for purchase include, but are not limited to, beaded & leather products, coasters, bracelets, necklaces, belts, dog collars, earrings, and decorated dawa sticks for example.
Hot Air Balloon (Additional Cost)
Hot-air ballooning over the Masai Mara is available at an additional cost, and is a truly stunning way to experience the landscape and an unforgettable sunrise.
Mara Expedition Camp has two professional camera sets, each with a camera body and lenses. These are available on a complimentary basis to guests on a first-come-first-serve basis. Photos will be downloaded to a USB drive on guest’s departure. A limited number of high-quality binoculars are also available for guest’s complimentary use during their stay.
Mara Expedition Camp’s two specially designed Land Cruisers are totally open-sided (a rarity in the Mara) and offer 300-degree views which provide ideal opportunities for photography. Under the guidance of our top guides, each vehicle comes fully equipped with a stocked fridge and photography tools.
