Mara Expedition Camp is a magical revisiting of the past, drawing from Africa’s original explorers’ designs and designed for those who search for East Africa’s romantic safari era. Here, you will experience the best of both worlds: the intense action of the Maasai Mara ecosystem, as well as the more private 70,000-acre Mara North Conservancy. Mara Expedition Camp is a stylish experience and adventure camp unique to the industry and fits the service levels, specialised guiding and design that have become associated with Great Plains Conservation.

It is safari chic with six light and airy, spacious canvas tents, each with en-suite bathrooms where you enjoy piping hot water from huge brass safari showers. The camp itself is tucked away below the tree line, hidden from the lights and noise from neighbouring camps or any other sign of humanity. Under the grove of African ebony trees, its humble main area is lit by lantern and candlelight, simple in design, but just enough for all the comforts. This camp’s ambience and ‘back to the classics’ safari design will be a sure hit with private groups and safari enthusiasts.

Mara Expedition Camp is a place for the ardent safari-goer. The camp is locally famous for its leopard residents wandering nearby. Mara Expedition Camp offers guests the best advantage of two migrations – the famous annual Serengeti migration and the green season migration from Loita Plains, an additional 50,000 wildebeest and over 100,000 zebras vying for grazing rights. With picnic breakfast (and often lunch, too), guests can enjoy full day safaris across some of Africa’s richest game country, which is renowned for extraordinary predator density and frequent hunts.

This camp’s ambience and ‘back to the classics’ safari design will be a sure hit with private groups and safari enthusiasts.
I truly believe that if each of us were to do our own share of good whether small or large to improve the way we live, think and act, to push the envelope and recognise the interconnectedness of all, then the world would undoubtedly change for the better.
