Kensington Mara Luxury Camp

Kensington Mara is a luxury tented camp on the banks of the Talek River on the north boundary of the Mara Reserve, located 2km west of the Sekenani gate. Each Suswa tent is luxuriously spread down the riverbank in this pristine 80 acre preserve. Isolated and private, yet in the midst of a teeming corner of the legendary Mara park, guests will savor a close connection with nature. Arriving by air, you land at the Keekorok airstrip just a half hour game drive away from camp

This tented camp is exclusive to only just six ensuite luxury tents. Each tent is professionally furnished by Palacina, the design professionals behind such luxurious properties as The Palms, and Breezes in Zanzibar. The Masai theme is showcased with evocative metal headboards, lamps and fixtures. Handwoven jute rugs accent the warm honey toned bed covers. Hand carved accents showcase Masai art. Snuggle up at night under a feather duvet in a sea of soft pillows. Each tent features two (2) queen beds luxuriously appointed with Egyptian cotton sheets. Your personal tent attendant will make sure that the room is meticulously cleaned, with bed turndown, a carefully drawn mosquito net, and hot water bottle to warm your bed on chilly nights.

Each expansive tent has five areas. The open verandah is shaded, with canvas director's chairs and thoughtfully placed reading table angled to catch the best views of the Talek river immediately in front of you. Inside, the bedroom features special oversized arched windows allowing cool breezes and warm light to wash through, while keeping the insects outdoors. A canvas wardrobe is ready to house your clothes, while a steamer trunk holds extra blankets. Side tables feature shining parafin lamps, with bright pressure lamps at your convenience for nighttime reading in bed. The two queen size beds offer plenty of space to relax in comfort. The tent is completely screened, plus there are mosquito nets as an added comfort to ensure an uninterupted slumber.

Immediately behind the bedroom is a change area with ceramic sink on a hand carved wooden counter with large mirror. A wooden rack has a full set of plush towels. On your right, an enclosed bathroom with a fully flushing toilet. And to the left, the shower with hot and cold running water

Three main meals are served each day in the large canvas dining tent overlooking the river. Weather permitting, meals can be individually served on the river bank or in your own verandah. Picnic meals can also be prepared for your full day game drives. Menus feature locally grown vegetables and fresh ingredients. Our chefs are adept and preparing superb bush cuisine, and will gladly observe any special dietary preferences. culminating with five course dinners ending with coffee or tea under the stars. Bottled water is included in the tariff, and soda, beer and wine are available on a cash basis. On a tall bank, in a bend in the river, we light an evening fire to warm a semi-circle of chairs looking into the game park.
