Overview of Mara Explorer Tented Camp
Mara Explorer is situated on a broad, thickly forested bend of the Talek River in the very heart of the Maasai Mara National Reserve.
This luxurious tented camp lies at the confluence of the Masai Mara’s four main game-viewing areas and enjoys prime views of the spectacular wildebeest migration between July and September.
During the remainder of the year, herds of watering elephants, hippos, and other animals can often be seen from your private veranda. Come and enjoy our marvelous camp!
