Mara Nyika Camp

Mara Nyika Camp is an exclusive safari lodge located in the Naboisho Conservancy, bordering the Masai Mara National Reserve.

Mara Nyika offers a very upmarket tented lodge experience in the exclusive Naboisho Conservancy. Owned and run by the excellent Great Plains, the lodge has an authentic but very sophisticated feel, with huge tented rooms which are luxuriously furnished. Despite the scale of the property, the property caters for a maximum of 12 guests, so it has a very exclusive feel. Great Plains provide high quality guiding and an emphasis on the safari experience as well as the accommodation and hospitality, so Mara Nyika naturally suits anyone looking for an upscale environment with an equal focus on the game-viewing experience.


Accommodation is offered for up to 12 guests in five tented suites, including a two bedroom family unit and the Sambuk Suite. Tucked into the woodland, each of the suites is raised off the ground…
