Maasai Mara tree camp to open in July

by | Jun 13, 2024 | Africa, Kenya, Travel

Great Plains Conservation will open its new Mara Toto Tree Camp on July 1. The camp is located in a forest canopy of ebony trees in Kenya’s Maasai Mara.


This romantic safari-era-inspired camp, with primary access to the private Mara North Conservancy, and of course the Maasai Mara National Reserve combines perfectly with  Mara Nyika Camp (that has access to the private Naboisho Conservancy), with Mara Plains Camp (accessing the private Olare Motorogi Conservancy) for full access to all three private conservancies, as well as the newly refurbished ol Donyo Lodge, completing an ideal circuit.


Key features of the camp include: 

  • The entire camp is now raised into the canopy of the trees and connected by suspended walkways for a full tree-top experience.
  • Accommodates a maximum of eight guests sharing in four Suites, each with an indoor lounge and en-suite bathroom facilities, including double vanity basins, luxury antique baths and an indoor shower.
  • Each suite includes a set of high-quality binoculars and a complete professional camera set per suite for guests’ complimentary use during their stay. All their photographs taken during their stay will be downloaded onto a keepsake memory stick upon departure or uploaded via high-speed internet.
  • The camp’s central area includes indoor and outdoor dining opportunities, a private wine cellar and an outdoor deck with a fireplace.
  • In-suite spa treatments are available.
  • Safaris take place in specially designed open-sided vehicles for photography purposes. Each vehicle seats a maximum of four guests, but can be adjusted to six for families.
  • Guests can enjoy access to both the Maasai Mara National Reserve and the private Mara North Conservancy.
  • The camp’s location takes advantage of two wildebeest and zebra migrations – the famous annual southern migration of over one million animals from the Serengeti, typically in late July and August, and the summer season migration from Loita Plains later in the year, when over 100 000 zebra and wildebeest arrive from the northwest.
