  • Mara Explorer is situated on a broad, thickly forested bend of the Talek River in the very heart of the Maasai Mara National Reserve.

    Location
    This luxurious tented camp lies at the confluence of the Masai Mara’s four main game-viewing areas, and enjoys prime views of the spectacular wildebeest migration between July and September. During the remainder of the year, herds of watering elephant, hippos and other animals can often be seen from your private veranda.
    Mara Explorer’s own all-weather airstrip means you can be in camp less than an hour after leaving the bustle of Nairobi city.

    Abundant wildlife all year through very close to the camp.
