Tangulia Mara opened in March 2016 in a small section of privately owned land, sandwiched between the Mara North Conservancy and the Maasai Mara National Reserve. There was previously a camp here called Salt Springs Camp, dating from 2010. The emphasis here is on quality guiding and game viewing, rather than overly luxurious accommodation. Tangulia means ‘come before’ in Swahili, implying 'the leaders' or 'the avant garde'. This is an appropriate name since it is the first camp in the Mara to be owned, managed and run by the local Maasai community – in this instance by Jackson Looseyia of BBC series Big Cat Diary fame.

Our view of Tangulia Mara

Tangulia Mara is not for those who like their creature comforts or first class service, but it’s perfect for wildlife enthusiasts and those interested in Kenyan culture. Being within striking distance of one of the best big game safari areas in Africa means that Jackson and his team of superb guides can take some exhilarating game drives. We’re delighted to support Tangulia Mara and we hope that this is the first of many Maasai-owned and managed camps.
