Mara Nyika Highlights

The best part about Mara Nyika – sister camp to Mara Plains in the neighbouring Olare Motorogi Conservancy – is its totally private, exclusive location in its own 50 000-acre Naboisho Conservancy. The excellence doesn’t end there, however; and Nyika, meaning “large plains” in the local Maa language, makes the exquisite natural surroundings work for each of the four elaborate tented suites. Full of the romance of yesteryear, the main guest area and the luxury rooms are raised into the tree canopies on stilts, from where they look through the tangle of acacias onto the abounding game-strewn plains beyond.

Mara Nyika Game Viewing and Activities

The focus of Mara Nyika is on the exclusivity of the safari experiences in the private Naboisho Conservancy, and the quality of each professionally guided activity. Early morning, late afternoon, and night-time game drives are the order of the day, offering plenty of time spent in the wide, open wilderness with expert guides and quality cameras (available for guests to borrow free of charge during their stay). Bush walks are on offer, especially for keen birders who can set out with a pair of Swarovski binoculars, courtesy of the lodge. Out on the open plains are the millions of migrating wildebeest, which march past seasonally as part of the famed Mara-Serengeti migration. This is a predator paradise with a strong lion population complete with large prides stalking the equally as dense population of antelope, zebra, wildebeest, and giraffe, among many others. Other ways to experience the magic include specially arranged hot-air balloon trips, and immersive Maasai cultural experiences.
