Maasai Mara Explorer Camp - Kenya

Mara Explorer Camp is a luxurious permanent tented camp based on the game rich banks of the Talek River in the heart of the Masai Mara National Reserve. Being so close to both the Mara and Talek rivers, the Mara Explorer Hotel provides guests with an ideal opportunity to view the annual migration crossings from the comfort of their verandah armchair. Outside of the migrations season the area offers some of the worlds most rewarding big cat sightings. Opened in early 2001, Mara Explorer Camp has elevated the art of the Kenya safari to spectacular new heights. This exclusive five-star camp, situated on a thickly forested river in the middle of the Maasai Mara reserve, offers guests the ultimate wilderness retreat.

Mara Explorer has been constructed as an eco-friendly camp, and its operations are designed to have a minimal impact on the fragile Talek ecosystem. All biodegradable waste is mulched for compost, while water heating is quelled by briquettes made from used coffee husks.


All the public areas are decorated with old African artifacts and memorabilia from the earliest days of the African safari. Together with its sister camp, Mara Intrepids Hotel, Mara Explorer helps to build and equip primary schools and medical clinics in the area. Guests are invited to visit these facilities as well as the villagers' own Manyattas, which offer a fascinating insight into traditional Maasai life.
Mara Explorer's  Camp own all-weather airstrip means you can be in camp less than an hour after leaving the bustle of Nairobi. The road from the capital provides a scenic ride of just less than six hours.

Mara Explorer Camp Hotel Accommodation
This exclusive five-star camp has 10 luxurious and well-spaced tents, each with its own private river frontage and views over the Talek’s southern banks. Seven of the tents have giant double beds, while three have twin beds. Each tent is furnished in a classic ‘Explorer’ style, with fine hand-carved mahogany furniture, antique chests and historic prints, and equipped with a luxurious en-suite bathroom with twin basins and all modern amenities.
 
The tents have been specially designed to open up to the sky and, on a deck on one side, a Victorian claws foot bathtub offers secluded open air bathing and a unique new perspective of the African bush. Each tent has a personal tent attendant and radios for tent service.

An intimate canvas covered dining area looks out over the river close to the camp entrance. Meals are served from 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 area offers luxurious sofas for reading, playing board games, or swapping safari tales.
