The Mara Leisure Camp sits along the banks of the Talek River on the northern boundary of the Masai Mara Reserve. Positioned in the middle of four prime wildlife areas, this is one of the Mara's most spectacular settings for wildlife encounters. Just a short drive from the Mara River, the camp is in an excellent location from which to experience the annual Great Migration. Accommodation is in a mix of well-equipped tents and cottages. The tents feature lovely wooden floors, safari-style furnishings and en suite facilities with twin wash basins, and the larger Jumbo Tents have a spacious veranda. The cottages offer large bathrooms with bathtub and separate shower.
Take in the majestic savanna while enjoying a bush breakfast, and stargaze by the camp's bonfire in the evenings. There are daily game drives accompanied by experienced Maasai guides, and guests can learn about the tribe's ancient culture and traditions on a visit to a local Maasai village.
