Great Plains – Mara Plains Camp

Greater Masai Mara, Kenya

As one of Kenya’s three Relais and Chateaux properties, you can expect nothing less than a truly unforgettable stay at Great Plains’ Mara Plains Camp. One of the camp’s most defining features is its unique location. Situated within the private 13, 300-hectare Olare Motorogi Conservancy, on the northern boundary of the Masai Mara National Reserve, the Mara Plains offers incredible game viewing. 

The camp itself is set within a lush forest, on a picturesque bend of the Ntiakitiak River. Here, just seven exclusive suites await. Each luxurious suite has been decorated with thick Lamu wood doors, deep reds, and brass accents. For those looking for a truly private experience, we highly recommend the Jahazi Suite. This two-bedroom sanctuary offers spectacular furnishings, spacious ensuite bathrooms, an indoor dining area that leads out to a private verandah, and a walkway that leads to a private pool.
