About Mara Explorers Camp
If you’re planning a trip to the Maasai Mara check us out!
Aimed at fun friendly adventure travellers, we offer simple and comfortable rustic accommodation including eight budget dome tents, five cottages and two safari tents as well as having a large camping area if you come with your own tent.
We provide clean facilities with hot showers, cozy bar and dining area with freshly prepared meals for our full board guests and a small self-catering kitchen area with fridge, gas stove and basic utensils for our guests who prefer to prepare their own meals.
Our electricity is 100% solar with just a back up generator for bad weather days, therefore we ask you to refrain from using high wattage items such as hair dryers. We also have seven friendly dogs and three happy cats living onsite so if you do not like cats and dogs, you may not enjoy it here!
From our base here you can partake in activities including game drives, nature walks, school and village visits, home stays, bush camping, sundowners, traditional BBQs and hot air ballooning. Located just 3.8km before the Sekenani gate of the Maasai Mara National Reserve and only 300m from the main road, we are accessible via public transport or we can organise you private transfers from Nairobi if you prefer which cost US$ 150 (1-3pax) each way per vehicle and the journey takes around 5 hours.

As well as plenty of space if you come with your own tent we have simple single and double budget dome tents which share communal toilet and shower facilities. We also have two double ensuite safari tents and various cottages which can sleep between 1-4 people in each with private toilet and shower attached.
All our accommodation is complete with comfortable beds which have linens, blankets and towels included and the tents have solar powered lighting inside. Due to being 100% solar powered, charging of electronics is done centrally in our bar area so we can monitor high wattage items. Charging is also available in the self catering kitchen area.

Individual set meals are also available from the camp kitchen at a cost of $10 per person for breakfast, $10 per person for lunch (packed lunches can be provided for full day game drives) and $15 per person for 3 course dinner.
