Private Rooms Help! A private room is a room that is not shared with other people from the property – in other words, you book and pay for all the beds in the room. If you are traveling alone, for example, but want to book a double room, you must pay for two people in order to book the whole room.

About Mara Explorers Camp

Mara Explorers Camp is a small camp situated just 3km before the Sekenani gate of the Maasai Mara Reserve and only 300m from the main road.
We have simple single, twin and double tented accommodation which share clean toilets and hot shower facilities as well as ensuite tents which can sleep up to four guests and are ideal for friends and families.
We have a central bar and dining area complete with sofas, book exchange, pool table and board games. There is also a large area for camping and outside seating areas.
We mainly get our electricity from solar panels which provide power for cold drinks, basic lighting around the camp plus charging facilities for phones and cameras in the bar area.
We can organise transfers to camp from Nairobi or Naivasha for KES 10,000 each way as well as other areas around Kenya and we have 4x4's based at camp for gamedrives which cost from KES 10,000 per day.
We can also organise vehicles and budget safari's to visit other areas of Kenya in combination with Maasai Mara.

Currently in total we can sleep 20 people per night in our tented accommodation. All the tented accommodation is complete with comfortable beds which have linens, blankets and towels included and the tents have solar powered lighting inside.

Location Information

Mara Explorers Camp, Sekenani, Maasai Mara, Kenya.
We are located just 3km from the Masai Mara National Reserve which is not fenced so it's possible to hear and encounter wildlife sometimes at camp, usually at night.
We are only 300mtrs from the main road meaning it's possible to access us even in the rainy season. If you are traveling by public transport to our camp you can be dropped off at the main road and met by our staff who will walk you down as long as you contact us in advance.
We are at the base of Siana Hill which is good for hiking and a walking distance from a local school and village, if you are interested in visiting them we can arrange these activities for you during your stay with us.
For those flying in or coming with public transport we can also arrange 4x4 safari vehicles and driver/guides for gamedrives during your stay if you need. We can also arrange taxi transfers to camp from various locations around Kenya if you do not have your own transport.
