Located in the heart of the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, Mara Plains Camp borders Kenya’s Masai Mara to its south. Rarely a night passes without lion roaring nearby, while leopards are regularly found to wander through the camp. Accommodating just 14 guests, the décor of Mara Plains pays homage to the essence of East Africa and its chief influences. Guests have unrivalled access to the great migration and to more than 40,000 hectares of exclusive, low-vehicle density tourism land, home to extensive areas of important habitat for a vast number of wildlife species.
Day 1 - Masai Mara Game Reserve
On arrival at Nairobi Airport you will board your scheduled flight to the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Lunch at the Camp followed by an afternoon game drive. (LD)
If a camp’s success lies in its details, then Mara Plains Camp is truly blessed, located as it is on a bend in the Ntiakitiak River in the heart of the 35,000-acre Olare Motorogi Conservancy which abuts Kenya’s Maasai Mara National Reserve to its south. Upon arriving at the camp, you walk across a bridge over the river, through a thick, riverine forest, up a small slope to some giant steps, only to be greeted by an endless horizon with one, single, flat-topped tree – the quintessential shape of East Africa – right in your line of sight. When sitting in the middle of one of the richest wild ecosystems in the world it’s exceptionally important not to try and upstage what nature has provided, so the design of Mara Plains is one of understatement and quiet class. The decor pays homage to the essence of East Africa and its chief influences – Maasai and Arab culture. Ancient Swahili heritage is reflected in large wooden doors from the coastal island of Lamu, and accents of deep red and purple honour the great Maasai chiefs and warriors who have roamed this land for millennia.

Day 3 - End of Mara Plains Camp Stay
This morning after breakfast and a game drive you will be transferred to the airstrip for your scheduled flight to Nairobi. (B)
