As well as game drives in the Maasai Mara we can organise various other activities for you during your stay including:
Hot Air Ballooning
Following a pre-dawn pick up from camp around 5am, take a breathtaking sunrise journey over the Mara plains before landing for a champagne-style picnic breakfast in the bush. Enjoy a game drive on your way back to camp where you can expect to arrive around 11am. Cost USD 450pp
Local Dinner Experience
If you like to experience different cultures and getting out to explore we can take you for a local meal in our nearby township of Sekenani. Enjoy a few drinks and some traditional Kenyan food before we return to camp to sleep it off! Cost KES 1000 per group of 1-5 people to cover return transport. Food included if you’re staying with us on full board. Drinks at your own expense. Lunch trips also possible.
Bush Camping Adventure
If you love camping and adventure then we can organise to set up our bush camp inside the Maasai Mara and you can combine a stay along with game drives. Our chef will prepare dinner under the stars and a sunrise breakfast. Here there are usually no facilities, just the wild! Cost dependent on traveller numbers and the number of nights. Contact us for a quote if you are interested in this activity.
Local School Visits
Enjoy a visit to Ole Keene Primary School 10 minutes walk from camp. Interact with the pupils and teachers, see the difficulties faced by rural schools in this area and learn how they are overcoming them. For anyone wanting to spend more time in the school we can arrange volunteer teaching here for a week or two. There is no charge to visit the school but donations via the camp towards The Porridge Project are always appreciated.
Guided Nature Walks
Embark on a hike up Siana hill to enjoy the amazing views over the whole Maasai Mara eco-system which stretches all the way to Tanzania. If the hill is beyond your capabilities you can take one of the easier routes around camp. Your local Maasai guides will tell you about the flora and fauna and their uses in traditional medicines. Also see what traces of wildlife you can come across. Cost KES 1000/ USD 10pp
Horse Ride & Game Drive Day Trip
We will depart camp after an early breakfast at 6am this morning and head across the Mara to the Ride Kenya stables. Here you will be kitted out and paired with your horse for a morning ride over the plains (suitable for experienced riders only). After a couple of hours you will return to the stables and we will head off for a picnic lunch before doing an afternoon game drive in the reserve. We’ll return to camp in the early evening. Cost USD 400pp (minimum of 2 people required).
Maasai Village Visits
Take a walk to Ole Keene Maasai Village 5 minutes from camp. Experience their traditional dances and learn about their culture. Ask as many questions as you like and take photos. Visits last for around 1 hour. Cost KES 1000/ USD 10pp.
You can book to have afternoon tea during your stay with us, great for those guests who want to stay longer and would like to spend some time relaxing in the camp. We will set up a selection of Kenyan teas as well as sandwiches, jam scones and cakes in a quiet, shady area of camp for you to enjoy! KES 1000 per person (minimum of 2 people required).
Want to learn more about the Maasai and embrace their culture completely? We can tailor make a village stay for you along with our Maasai neighbours in Ole Keene. You can eat with them and sleep in their boma in a traditional mud hut manyatta set up. KES 8000 per person per night full board including village activities. Maasai dress optional.
Our driver guides can organise with our camp chefs to pack up everything you’ll need for breakfast in the bush. You can set off early, after a cup of tea or coffee and after some animal spotting you will be able to stop for a full breakfast inside the reserve before continuing with your days game drive. Please let us know in advance for these meal set ups to be arranged.
