The Masai Mara National Reserve is one of the most popular and most visited African game reserves. A true 'Out of Africa' safari destination, the reserve is mostly made up of open plains, baked golden by the African sun.
Big cats, elephants, giraffe, wild dog, buffalo, rhino, hyena, wildebeest, gazelles and impala are just a few of the many animal species that may be spotted on your daily game drives (no night drives are allowed in the actual reserve itself), and hundreds of bird species have also been recorded.
The sheer density of game and birdlife makes this an exciting and rewarding safari destination, for first-time safari goers or for returning safari enthusiasts.
As well as game drives, you can also enjoy a sunrise safari hot-air balloon ride. Watch the sun cast a golden light over the swaying grasses of the Mara as it rises high over the vast plains. After the exhilarating ride you will land for a champagne bush breakfast in the wilderness, before being transferred back to your camp.
Hidden in beautiful greenery on the banks of 2 rivers, the famous Mara and Talek Rivers, in the very heart of the Masai Mara Game Reserve, Mara Ngenche Safari Camp lives up to its reputation as an intimate bush camp with a relaxed atmosphere, and being an ideal camp for experiencing the full adventure of the African bush. Not to mention, it also has spectacular views.
The dining and lounge areas reflects the ambience of a tented camp, but provides the comfort and protection of a permanent building. The open design affords a magical view over the rivers and a hippo pool, and crocodiles can also be seen lazing on the river banks. Al fresco dining is also an option.
Game drives are always thrilling and are guided by qualified expert local Masai guides in open-sided 4WD vehicles, with a maximum of 6 guests per vehicle.
The 10 spacious guest tents are decorated with an amazing fusion of modern African decor. Each tent boasts views onto either the Talek or the Mara River, and is set in its own 'boma' enclosure with a private plunge pool, ensuring ample privacy. The en-suite bathrooms boast a claw-foot bath as well as an outside shower.
Wind down your day with a glass of wine around the camp fire as you listen to the night sounds of all kinds of wild animals.
