Mara Explorer, built on a thickly forested river in the middle of the Maasai Mara Reserve, offers the ultimate wilderness retreat. Here you can watch elephants or giraffes drinking from the privacy of your verandah - or your own outdoor bathtub! In the heart of the reserve, Explorer enjoys prime views of the spectacular wildebeest migration between June and September, and rewarding daily game viewing for the remainder of the year.
This exclusive five-star camp offers 10 luxurious en suite tents, each with a private deck overlooking the river. There is an open-air riverfront dining area, an intimate lounge and camp library. The swimming pool can be used at the sister camp, Mara Intrepids. Activities offered include shared game drives, walking safaris in the Mara Conservation area, and visits to a local Maasai community supported by the camp. Riverside bush breakfasts, sundowners and dinners and balloon safaris can be arranged.
"Mara Explorers was an unbelievable camp also – same fire pit experiences and although we were doing shared drives the camp was very empty (5 people besides us). The manager, George knew we had been in Tanzania for a week so put the other first timers in one truck and gave us our own driver!"
