About Mara Explorer

Mara Explorer is situated on a broad, thickly forested bend of the Talek River in the middle of the Maasai Mara National Reserve. The camp is situated juts a short drive from the all-weather airstrip and a comfortable five hour drive from Capital. This bush camp provides accommodation in 10 luxurious safari tents, all with views of the river.

The tents are all private with a small patio where one can relax and enjoy the view of the river and surrounding bush veld. Each tent is furnished with classic explorer-style with a classic blend of ancient and modern, with fine hand-carved mahogany furniture, rich African artifacts, and luxurious bathrooms with twin basins and all modern amenities. The tents have been specially designed to open up to the sky, and each boasts a private open-air bathing platform, from which guests can enjoy a unique new perspective of the African bush.

An intimate canvas covered dining area looks out over the river close to the camp entrance. Meals are served from our 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.

Other facilities include a personal butler on hand 24 hours a day, full laundry and valet service, early morning calls with tea and coffee, safety deposit boxes for personal belongings, foreign currency exchange service and a resident doctor who is on call 24 hours a day.
