Growth after the “rain” storm – Three New Great Plains Camps in the Mara

There’s a new approach to Great Plains’ Masai Mara properties after the wet season had its way with one of its beautiful camps on multiple occasions.  

We are just as excited as you are to see the development of these stunning camps and can only imagine how much guests are going to enjoy their stay. 

Explorer Collection Camp, Mara Expedition  

The newly built Mara Expeditions Camp comprises boutique accommodation in 6 tents and day access to the Maasai Mara National Reserve & Mara North Conservancy. The tents are designed around large public areas, including a show kitchen perfect for foodies. This luxurious experience offers top-class service, and because guests are staying on private land, guided walks are also offered.   

Explorer Collection Camp, Mara Toto  

Despite its habit of floating away, Great Plains could not let go of this ‘favoured child’ as the name translates in Swahili. This boutique camp with just four tents located in a thick ebony grove, offers day access to Maasai Mara National Reserve & Mara North Conservancy.  This camp will operate just for the migration season from mid-May to the end of October.  

Réserve Collection camp & Relais & Châteaux member, Mara Plains Camp  

Mara Plains Camp has been elevated with a lofty design, not only advancing walkways through the forest but offering stunning public areas such as the raised library overlooking the hippos and the wine cellar offering first-class wines. This camp now boasts a spa, five suites and a 2-bedroom Mara Plains Jahazi Suite complete with its own butler, vehicle and guide.   

The entire camp has been designed over the waters on stilts and walkways, making this a unique experience of the area and perfect for honeymooners looking for something romantic. Staying here, you will have day access to Maasai Mara National Reserve and Day & Night access to the private Olare Motorogi Conservancy.
