Conservation organization Great Plains has announced it will be opening two camps this summer in Kenya's Masai Mara.
The new Mara Toto Camp, meaning "baby" in Swahili, will open its doors to guests May 25. The camp will be located less than 2 miles away from big sister Mara Plains Camp, which is scheduled to reopen June 1, after a full camp refurbishment. The Jahazi Suite is also scheduled to open at Mara Plains Camp at the same time. The exclusive-use villa will include a private game drive vehicle, guide, butler and chef. It will be ideal for groups and multigenerational travel looking for an exceptional private safari experience.
Located along the Ntiakitiak River on the border of the Masai Mara Reserve, the Mara Toto Camp is hidden in the forest, offering guests privacy and wonderful game-viewing opportunities with access to both the reserve and the adjacent Mara North Private Conservancy. Accommodating up to eight guests in four canvas tents, the camp is perfectly suited to be hired out exclusively for intimate groups, couples and families with children age 6 and up.
Situated in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, the Mara Plains Camp is elevated on high-rise decks and will now offer a new honeymoon suite on a peninsula island. The Honeymoon Suite can only be accessed via suspension bridge, offering couples their own oasis of exclusivity and privacy.
The Jahazi Suite is a two-bedroom villa that can accommodate up to four adults sharing or a family of five with two adults and three children. This exclusive use villa residence has been created especially for guests seeking a five-star personal safari experience catered to their own preferences.
