Welcome to Mara Explorers Camp & Backpackers
If you are planning a trip to the Maasai Mara check us out!
Our camp is aimed at fun eco friendly adventure travellers, offering a large campsite if you have your own camping equipment as well as having simple and comfortable accommodation comprising of five en suite bandas with private toilet and shower.
We provide clean eco friendly facilities with hot showers, cozy bar and dining area, freshly prepared meals are available for our catered guests and we also provide a self catering kitchen in the campsite for those guests who prefer to self cater. Our electricity is 100% solar powered with just a back up generator for bad weather days, and we are a pet friendly camp with cats and dogs living onsite. You can read more about our sustainability efforts here.
From our base here you can partake in activities including game drives, bush camping, Maasai home stays, traditional Maasai BBQs, sundowners and hot air ballooning. Located just a 5 minute, 3.8km, drive on a tarmac road to 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 also organise you private taxi transfers to camp from all over Kenya if you prefer!
You can also find out more information here on our small group joining Maasai Mara bush camping safari, designed to coincide with the migration this year on 24-26th September.
