Mara Expedition Camp is a safari camp located in the Masai Mara Reserve that offers access to some of the region's best wildlife. It has six light and spacious canvas tents with en-suite bathrooms and a humble main area set in a grove of African acacia trees. From April to June 2023, the camp will add a new 2-bedroom family tent. The camp is positioned to take advantage of the annual Serengeti migration and the green season migration from Loita Plains, with full days of traversing some of Africa's richest game country. Access to Mara North Conservancy gives guests options of more privacy when not exploring the Masai Mara Reserve. The camp is locally famous for its leopard residents wandering nearby. The ambience and ‘back to the classic’ safari design will be a sure hit with private groups and safari enthusiasts alike.
Great Plains Foundation, the organisation that runs the camp, aims to restore indigenous trees to landscapes across Kenya, Botswana, and Zimbabwe. They work with local communities and schools, teaching the value of indigenous trees and their critical role in functioning ecosystems. To date, they have planted more than 5000 indigenous trees in deforested areas bordering Maasai Mara. Guests are encouraged to join in by planting a tree during their stay.

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 28,000 hectare 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 has become associated with Great Plains Conservation.
It is safari chic with five light and airy, spacious canvas tents, each with en-suite bathrooms. 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 acacia trees, its humble main area is lit by lantern and candlelit, 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.
The camp is locally famous for its leopard residents wandering nearby and is positioned to take 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. Mara Expedition Camp is a place for the ardent safari-goer. Full days, with picnic breakfast (and often lunch, too), traverse some of Africa’s richest game country, renowned for extraordinary predator density and frequent hunts. Access to both the Masai Mara Reserve and Mara North Conservancy give guests options of more privacy.
