Mara West combines luxury accommodations with the breathtaking adventures of an unforgettable African safari. There are a lot of activities at Masai Mara that you can choose to do, but we have the MUST do activities that we recommend to everyone.
1. Dine With Nature
You cannot leave Mara West Camp without having a Sunrise breakfast or bush dinner outside your porch or at the lookout overlooking the vast plains of the Transmara Triangle below. For those who are more adventurous you’ll love our Bush meals inside the Masai Mara Game Reserve as you watch the animals in their natural habitat.
2. See How the Sun Rises and Sets in Masai Mara
3. Go on a Safari
Mara West Camp is just 3 kms. from the Oloololo Park Gate making it very easy to enter the Masai Mara National Game Reserve. There’s absolutely no way you can visit us and not go on a Safari to view some of the world’s most impressive wildlife. You can use one of our 4×4 vehicles with specially outfitted open hatches for prime game viewing and photography.
4. Watch the Wildlife Up Close
The best thing about being in a camp near the Masai Mara Game Reserve such as Mara West, is that you get to take walking tours accompanied by a nature walk guide and enjoy Kenya’s best flora, birds and wildlife on foot.
5. Spot the Evasive Leopard
Before you leave Mara West Camp you’ll have to make sure you spot the leopard. Leopards are among the hardest animals to find on earth, but at the Masai Mara Game Reserve there is a big herd of them and if you look just closely enough you might spot one or two. Good luck 🙂
6. Witness the Greatest Wildlife Spectacular on Earth
The wildebeest migration is indeed the 8th wonder of the world. It is a survival of the fittest kind of war as the wildebeest try to cross the famous Mara River without being eaten by the anxiously waiting crocodiles. You certainly don’t want to miss this!
7. Get Married at Masai Mara
Looking for an adventure of a lifetime? You must have your wedding at Mara West Camp. You can have your wedding ceremony under perfectly arching trees with the whole of The Mara as the backdrop. This is simply breathtaking! The bride will then get honored by local Masai women by placing a beautifully colorful traditional wedding necklace on her.
8. Spend Your Honeymoon at Maasai Mara
Missed the chance to have your ceremony at our beautiful camp? Worry not, there’s still one last item to tick off from our bucket list; spend your honeymoon at our luxurious honeymoon suite! The suite has a four poster king bed, a unique outdoor shower on the front verandah, and an adjacent private sun tanning deck. The suite’s location on the escarpment is especially private and most picturesque. The couple also gets a bottle of sparkling wine each night in the room and either a private dinner or breakfast each night/morning on the deck.
There you have it. We hope you’ll visit us soon, get right onto the bucket list and start ticking off one activity at a time!
