Mara Explorer Camp is situated on a broad, thickly forested bend of the Talek River in the very heart of the Masai Mara National Reserve.
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
Mara Explorer has 10 luxurious and well spaced tents, each with its own private deck overlooking the Talek River. 7 of the tents have giant double beds while 3 have twin beds.
Sitting on a shady raised platform facing the Talek river, each luxury tent covers approximately 36m² and is fitted with a king size bed 190x200 or 2 twin beds 100x200. Each tent is furnished in a classic ‘Explorer’ style of the grand African safaris, with fine hand-carved mahogany furniture, antique chests and historic prints; and is equipped with a luxurious en-suite bathroom with twin basins and all the modern amenities.
This tent has been specially designed to open up to the sky and a deck on one side. It also offers a Victorian claws-foot bathtub offering secluded open-air bathing and a unique new perspective of the African bush.
An intimate canvas covered dining area looks out over the river close to the camp's entrance. Meals are served from Mara Explorer's own kitchens, using fresh vegetables and herbs grown in the camp gardens.
Meals can also be enjoyed on your verandah, or at one of a series of specially selected "bush sites" close to the camp. Next door, the camp bar provides beautiful river views and a well-stocked library, while the lounge offers luxurious sofas for reading, playing board games, or swapping safari tales. All the public areas are decorated with old African artifacts and memorabilia from the earliest days of the African safari.
