Mara Explorer Tented Camp, Maasai Mara, Kenya

Mara Explorer Mara Explorer Lounge Mara Explorer

Mara Explorer is situated on a thickly forested river in the middle of the Maasai Mara reserve, and offers guests the ultimate wilderness retreat, where you can watch elephants or giraffes drinking from the privacy of your verandah - or your own outdoor bathtub! Situated in the heart of the reserve, Explorer enjoys prime views of the spectacular wildebeest migration between June and September, and rewarding daily game viewing for the remainder of the year. Mara Explorer is managed by Kenya's first Maasai lady manager, Tiito Mpetti, who also runs a community charity educating Maasai girls in her native Megwarra Village, to which she will happily invite interested guests.

This exclusive five-star camp offers 10 luxurious en suite tents, each with a private deck overlooking the river. There is an open-air riverfront dining area, an intimate lounge and camp library. The swimming pool can be used at the sister camp, Mara Intrepids. Activities offered include group game drives, walking safaris in the Mara Conservation area, and visits to Masai communities supported by the camp. Riverside bush breakfasts, sundowners and dinners can be arranged.
