Meaning "Great Plains", Mara Nyika is situated on the western side of the private and exclusive Naboisho Conservancy bordering the Maasai Mara, a prime location handpicked by Great Plains conservationists and National Geographic photographers Dereck and Beverly Joubert.
Enjoy a morning game drive to witness the intense predator action of the incredible Maasai Mara ecosystem, or a sunset game drive that may last into the night in search of lesser known nocturnal mammals, a rarity permitted only in the private concession. You may even experience a full day safari on the camp's highly customised vehicles which are fully equipped with fridges stocked with food and drinks, primed for those longer days when the wildlife viewing proves too hard to leave.
Straddling a small stream, the 3 tree-house styled tented suites and two 2-bedroom family suites are set high amongst the treetops on raised wooden decking, guaranteeing you awe-inspiring views across the bush. Each tent features wooden floors and a well-appointed en-suite bathroom, with a copper bath reminiscent of old-world safaris. The wellness spa offers indulgent in-room treatment for those seeking complete relaxation, whilst families will love the range of activities on offer in the specially designed Young Explorers Kids' program. For photography enthusiasts, you may want to book some private tuition with the camp's experienced photographic professionals to ensure you capture that once-in-a-lifetime wildlife sighting.
