Maasai Mara National Reserve

0ur top 15 lodges and safari camps inside the Maasai Mara National Reserve

When deciding where to stay in the Maasai Mara ecosystem, don’t be unduly swayed by whether a lodge or camp is inside the reserve proper: the conservancies and group ranches outside the reserve have excellent wildlife-viewing and their own special features, and are often much less crowded than the busiest parts of the reserve.
Ask us for more details of which camps are where, and what is likely to suit you best.
