Mara Toto

Mara Toto Camp sits in a small bend in the Ntiakitiak River, where the thick forest meets savannah, and just a few kilometers from its sister camp, Mara Plains. Mara Toto is a magical revisiting of the past, drawing from Africa’s original explorers’ designs and designed for those who search for East Africa’s romantic safari era.  Here, you will experience the best of both worlds: the intense action of the Maasai Mara ecosystem, as well as the more private 70,000-acre Mara North Conservancy.  Mara Toto is a stylish experience and adventure camp unique to the industry and fits the service levels, specialized guiding and design that has become associated with Great Plains Conservation.

Under the grove of Africa ebony trees, the camp’s humble main area is lit by lantern and candlelit, simple in design, but just enough for all the comforts. This camp’s ambience and ‘back to the classics’ safari design will be a sure hit with private groups and safari aficionados.

The camp is locally famous for its leopard residents wandering the riverbanks. And is positioned to take the best advantage of two migrations – the famous annual Serengeti migration and the green season migration from Loita Plains, an additional 50,000 wildebeest and over 100,000 zebras vying for grazing rights. Mara Toto is a place for the ardent safari-goer. Full days, with picnic breakfast (and often lunch, too), traverse some of Africa’s most prosperous game country, renowned for extraordinary predator density and frequent hunts. Access to both the Reserve and Mara North Conservancy give guests options for more privacy. Open: May-Nov.

The camp style is Safari chic with four light and airy, spacious canvas tents, each with en-suite bathrooms where you enjoy piping hot water from huge brass’ safari showers’ to a chorus of hippos lazing nearby. This is the perfect camp for families or small groups to book exclusively. (Sleeps 8).


 

Early morning and late afternoon / early evening game drives in an open, 4×4 vehicle. Balloon flights across the Maasai Mara can be arranged but are at an additional cost. Visits to Maasai bomas and local school and community projects (supported by Mara Expedition Camp) are possible and offer incredible insight into the region’s local vibrant people.
