Take in the best of Kenya in ultimate luxury. Starting in Nairobi where you can stay in one of the most exclusive properties in town, before heading out to the Chyulu hills located between Kenyas Tsavo and Amboseli parks, take part in some unique safari experiences such as on horseback or by mountain bike and spot elephants and big cats. Head up to the Laikipia Plateau for more exclusivity and adventure, your days here will be spent exploring the vast terrain on game drives, nature walks, camel safaris or on horseback. Finally head to the iconic Masai Mara and stay here or in one of the surrounding private conservancies.
The beauty of a stay at ol Donyo, besides the beautiful accommodation and stunning setting, comes in the diversity of activities which are available. The private nature of the reserve means that both day and night drives are offered along with walking safaris. For those wanting a more unique safari experience we recommend a mountain biking or horse riding safari which will allow you to have an exhilirating experience on the plains. Horse riding safaris are particularly great as the smell of the horse masks your presence, allowing you closer encounters with wildlife, especially the giraffe and zebra. Whilst on drives you have good chances of seeing big tusker elephants, lion, cheetah and plenty of plains game. You can also meet the Maasai community who own the reserve, learning more about how they benefit from the reserve as well as the impressive conservation efforts underway here. If you prefer to spend an afternoon around the lodge, there is a hide where you can enjoy wildlife, particularly elephants coming to the waterhole to drink.
Intimate and secluded, Mara Plains Camps provides an unparalleled adventure into one of the most iconic wildlife destinations on the planet. Mara Plains is a one-of-a-kind luxury Kenyan safari camp located in the private 35,000 acre Olare Motorogi Conservancy, the heart of the greatest predator country in Africa. No other Maasai Mara-based camp offers access to the extensive area as Mara Plains Camp does.
