Karen Blixen Camp
Step back in time for traditional safari with Karen Blixen Camp. The 22 spacious tents are perfectly located on the banks of the Mara River; you can view wildlife from your armchair.
Game drives are conducted within the Mara North Conservancy, but during the migration season you can go to the Masai Mara Reserve to see the wildebeests crossing the Mara River. You can extend the afternoon game drive into a night game drive to have a chance to see animals that only come out at night.
Game walks in the bush with Maasai guides is another incredible experience. There is a pool and an excellent masseuse to enjoy between or after magical game drives.
Karen Blixen Camp uses solar panels, has a non-power cold room, gas burners, zero waste sewage system and waste management.
Probably the world’s most famous game park has undergone substantial development and is for good reason one of the most desirable places on earth to see the iconic wildlife. During the Great Migration, it’s the best natural show on earth, a true spectacle. Take land game drives or a balloon ride above the plains.
