Mara Plains Camp Fly-In Safari

Mara Plains Camp is a seven-tent camp in the 13,000-hectare Olare Motorogi Conservancy on the northern end of Maasai Mara National Reserve. Explore the broad hills, which are home to grazers like giraffes, zebras, hartebeests, and warthogs. Expect big cats in the reserve, which is home to Africa’s largest concentration of the species. Several lion pride territories meet here, which can make for some interesting encounters as the different groups battle for dominance. Outside your front door, game drives begin. Explore 35,000 acres of rolling grassland, hills, cliffs, and the Motorogi plains in one of the world’s most diverse wild environments.
