MARA NAPA CAMPS is the premier collection of camps in the Maasai Mara, near the Talek gate of the National Reserve. The 15 acre compound includes 7 premium tents, ultra-purified water, internet throughout the property, an organic garden, a state-of-the-art waste water treatment plant, and solar power. The design was created by local Maasai, Harrison Pemba Taga and Michelle Nirenstein of Austin, Texas. This permanent tented camp includes makuti thatched roofs for natural temperature control and each spacious suite is situated on its own expansive compound.
The property purposely has no fences, and buildings have been strategically placed so as not to interfere with the established pathways of local wildlife. The 15 acres is bordered by three rivers (including the Talek River) that offer watering and bathing spots for many large animals. Elephants, warthogs, giraffes, mongooses, zebras, hippos, and baboons are commonly seen enjoying the rivers and grasslands of the Mara Napa Camps. Also on the horizon, are a Maasai cultural museum, community coffee house, radio station, mobile medical/vet clinic, theatre, bookstore, drone surveillance to deter poachers and track wildlife, and classrooms.
All premium tents include wifi, private decks, outdoor shower and sunning areas, private gym and yoga/ meditation area, bamboo sheets, in-room french press coffee, tea kettle, running purified water for showers and sinks, mini bar with beverages and snacks, and daily free laundry service. In-room or deck dining is always an option. 24-hour security by local Maasai make guests feel secure despite the proximity to wild animals. Sunrise and sunset safaris are included at no extra charge. Internet is accessible throughout the property. Three gourmet meals, and snacks on demand are served daily, and we offer personalised menus to meet your every need, including vegan and keto.
