Accommodation in Masai Mara

Set in what is considered Kenya’s prime wildlife area, Mara Leisure Camp is located along the Talek River at the confluence of the Masai Mara’s four wildlife viewing areas, on the Northern boundary of the Masai Mara Game Reserve.

One of the most exciting spectacles in the world is the “Great Migration”, where two million wildebeest, zebras, and other herbivores pass through the Masai Mara / Serengeti ecosystem in Kenya and Tanzania. This is a perilous journey for the animals, where they encounter many river crossings and the gauntlet of crocodiles in waiting.

Mara Leisure Camp promises a unique safari adventure, including daily safari drives with our experienced, local Masai guides as well as educational outings and visits to several community development projects within the Talek area. For the discerning palate, we have expert chefs who deliver mouth-watering, diverse cuisine. Why not enjoy these in the bush for that ultimate experience?

As dusk rolls in, enjoy romantic evenings while you watch the sunset over the plains, or get cozy by the fireplace at Mara Leisure Camp while taking a sundowner cocktail of your choice. At night listen to the unique sounds of the African wilderness. Tip your head back and be mesmerized by the star-studded, velvet skies above – in clarity rarely witnessed elsewhere. The exclusivity that you seek and deserve is our promise to you.
