Rooms & Amenities
Mara Plains Camp consists of 7 luxury suites, all of which are raised off the ground, giving guests wonderful views across the plains.
The camp draws its design from Swahili and Maasai influences, and is completely solar-powered.
Each suite has an en suite bathroom with a walk-in shower, there are yoga mats and bands, and Wi-Fi is available throughout the camp. Spa treatments are also available.
Mara Plains Camp's location in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy - part of the wider Mara ecosystem - puts it in firmly in the territory of the big cats and Mara plains game.
Game drives are the focus here, and the camp offers both morning and evening drives, as well as night game drives.
Hot air balloon safaris and guided nature walks are also possible here, and the lodge runs some excellent cultural visits to nearby communities.
