Located a few kilometers from Mara Plains, Mara Expedition Camp has been built on a small bend in the Ntiakitiak River, where a thick riverine forest meets the unending savannah in the north-central section of the Maasai Mara. This is a place where lions own the night and hippos stake claim to vast territories, where we submit to the supreme power of wild Africa and take our lead from Mother Nature. It’s a place of learning, where Africa teaches lessons that will change the way you view the world in one of the most incredible classrooms on the planet – the incomparable Maasai Mara

Throughout the reserve, animals are to be seen everywhere due to the abundance of water source near the lodge. Hence you are able to sight for exotic species from the platforms of the lodge. The lodge is also located on top of the hill which allows guests to see further in the far distance.
