Located on a dramatic riverbend in the remote Lamai triangle in the Serengeti, this permanent tented camp is a modern take on classic East African safaris. Cool & contemporary elegance sets the tone for the laidback luxury that underpins the experience in this intimate setting, with natural fabrics, canvas, stone and raw leather blending in with primary Masai colours and elegant art pieces by young African designers.

Functional design elements and airy spaces encourage guests to continuously connect with nature, allowing for complete relaxation and an authentic sense of calm. The epitome of sustainable tourism, the camp operates off the grid and relies entirely on a custom-designed solar system for its power and the use of recycled and natural materials wherever possible.


Each and every plate is an expression of the company’s commitment not only to creating an outstanding food offering that perfectly complements the exquisite surroundings in which guests find themselves, but to the importance of practising environmental sustainability at every level, including in the kitchens.

An intimate sanctuary

Mara River Camp’s remote and unspoilt setting in 98,000 acres of untouched wilderness in northern Tanzania includes access to some of the world’s most prized and private game-viewing opportunities, including breathtaking views of the renowned migratory route traversed annually by more than a million wildebeest.

The Mara River has its source in the South Western Mau forests of Kenya draining into Lake Victoria at Musoma in Tanzania. The Mara River Basin is about 13,750 km2, of which 65 per cent is located in Kenya and 35 per cent in Tanzania. The River runs through the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya and the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, the latter being a World Heritage Site and a Biosphere Reserve. Both the Mara and Serengeti are of global conservation significance, and great economic importance at the local, national and regional levels.


Our rates includes:


-All meals and beverages (including premium wines, spirits and liqueurs, but excluding French Champagne)

-Twice-daily game drives in open game-viewing vehicles

-Return road transfers between the Serengeti Lamai airstrip and the camp
