One of several Porini camps which follow the same model of small, comfortable tented camps at the lower end of the price spectrum. Walk with Maasai guides. Day trips into Maasai Mara NP.
Two intimate camps in the forests looking out onto the savanna, tented rooms but butler service, silverware and other lux touches. Due for an upgrade in 2018.
In the far north of this region, far from other camps and looking out over plains and mountains. Comfortable camp run by committed conservationists, there’s also fly-camping, and a star-bed camp a 3 hour walk away. High-ceilinged tented suites with thatch roof over, lots of big screen-windows to maximise views.
You’ll feel like you’re in someone’s stately home, high on a ridge overlooked by Mount Kenya. Contemporary design but very elegant with facilities including gym and cinema. Less structured than typical safaris – horseback rides, bush walks and picnics, or take a drive any time of day without seeing any other vehicles as it’s booked on an exclusive use basis. Can be used as a base to explore northern Kenya.
Cosy camp which is simpler and more old fashioned than sister camp Mara Plains, but with Great Plains there are elegant comforts everywhere.
Family home on a ranch which is exclusively yours, combines canvas and built structures and warm comfortable décor. 2 cottages at the Pool House. Everything’s included except helicopter rides.
Permanent camp in Serian’s mobile style, year round game but also 10 mins from a migration point so you can there before the crowds. Family suite.
As the name suggest, this is Alex Walker’s first camp, with large tents along the side of the hill looking over the Mara River towards the escarpment. The design is more traditional, it’s unpretentious and family-friendly. Sightings are good, you get a private vehicle, and because you’re in the conservancy, walking and night drives are allowed. Book ahead to request The Nest for an exciting night in a treehouse.
Well located near migration crossing points, grand tents with contemporary décor and big bathtubs.
Good location inside the Maasai Mara on a river, large and elegantly furnished tents.
