Africa 2015 Grand Award Winner – Mara Plains Camp in Kenya
Located in Kenya, the luxury Mara Plains Camp was recently named the Africa 2015 Grand Award winner as the Most Memorable Safari Experience in Africa. The award–winning Kenyan safari camp received this prestigious honor from the editors of renowned travel organization Andrew Harper.
Mara Plains Camp can be found in the exclusive Olare Motorogi Conservancy, which borders the Maasai Mara National Reserve to the north.
Offering the widest range in the incredible Mara ecosystem, this luxury safari camp also provides access to the Mara North Conservancy.
Reopened in 2013 after a comprehensive remodeling project, Mara Plains Camp has morphed into one of Africa’s top ecological camps. The safari camp is also proud to be member of the distinguished group of hotels – Relais & Châteaux.
Designed to resemble a grand 1800’s safari expedition, Mara Plains Camp offers guests an endless array of luxury amenities. You’ll be amazed at the abundant Kenya wildlife heritage, which can literally walk right up to your doorstep for unbelievable VIP nature experience.
The camp’s decor features ancient Swahili culture and utilized in large wood doors from the coastal town of Lamu, in addition to the bright fabrics of the Maasai people provide accent.
Mara Plains Camp is more than a safari camp. It is designed and built as a home away from home, with the comforts you might expect of a lavish residence yet carried out in the style of a grand 1800’s safari expedition. Kenya’s wildlife heritage is on your doorstep, and often wanders freely through the camp; while the magic of the Maasai and Arab culture is reflected in the decor.
Proud of the most recent award, Dereck Joubert who is the Great Plains Conservation CEO and respected conservationist was quoted, “camps need to have stories deeply embedded in them. East Africa has a history of railway lines, so we found some antique chandeliers from the romantic era of rail travel across Africa. Touches of history and storytelling with every object brings the camp alive with legend and myth, and casts a romantic spell on our guests.”
