Karen Blixen Camp

The camp is situated in southern Kenya on the northwestern border of the famed Masai Mara Reserve on 66 acres concession of private land leased from a Masai landlord. Karen Blixen camp is accessible by flight from Nairobi, Mombassa, Samburu, Lewa Downs and Nanyuki or by private charter flights. The camp is also accessible by road. The drive from Nairobi takes approximately 5 hours during the dry season, and 7 hours in the green season

Karen Blixen Camp in the Masai Mara offers an authentic ’yesteryear’ experience for visitors wishing to gain that little extra from their safari. Set on the bank of the Mara River the camp consists of 22 luxurious tents. The location is spectacular, with the great Mara plains behind the camp and the impressive escarpment and Mara River in front. Throughout the day, zebras, elephants and hippos come to drink from the river.
Staying in a bush camp doesn’t mean compromising on comfort; the food and service are first class, as are the warmth and experience of Karen Blixen Camp staff.

The camp comprises 22 spacious tents set on large mahogany platforms – each with a veranda from which one can enjoy an afternoon siesta taking in the wonderful surroundings. The tents are furnished with comfortable furniture for the ultimate camping luxury. 19 tents are placed along the riverbank, whilst 3 units are situated on raised platforms offering incredible views of the area. Each of the tents has private toilet and shower. Camp facilities also include a restaurant, a bar and a swimming pool, as well as wellness treatments are offered by the resident masseuse

Karen Blixen Camp being situated in one of the most densely populated wildlife areas in the world, game viewing is never a disappointment. We suggest that visitors leave the camp early in the morning, return for a hearty breakfast and relaxation before proceeding on an afternoon/evening drive. Picnic lunches can be provided for full day game drives. Animals often seen on game drives in the area include lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, giraffe and zebra, to name but a few. A ‘must do’ activity from Karen Blixen Camp is a night drive, where we look for the nocturnally active species
