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 each 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 large BBQ where we often prepare meals. 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.

Accommodation Information

As well as plenty of space if you come with your own tent we have five simple single, twin and double tents. We also have two ensuite family tents which can each sleep up to four guests. 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 and blankets included and the tents have basic solar powered lighting inside.
All our rates are offered on a full board (3 meals a day) basis. Please contact us in advance if possible if you have any special dietary requests. Due to our remote location it helps us plan our supplies if we know ahead of your arrival!

Location Information

Mara Explorers Camp, Sekenani, Maasai Mara, Kenya.
PO Box 896
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.
