Karen Blixen Camp is a luxurious camp that has a colonial ambiance reminiscent of the 1920's when Karen Blixen went on safaris on the savannahs of the Masai Mara. This Kenya safari camp consists of 22 luxurious canvas tents situated on raised wooden platforms overlooking a scenic stretch of the Mara River.
The camp is perfectly positioned for optimal game viewing during the Great Wildebeest Migration, as one of the most dramatic points in the annual cycle is when thousands of these antelope have to cross the Mara which is home to some of the largest Crocodiles in Africa. The BBC’s Big Cat Diary is filmed on the Conservancy and sightings of Lion, Cheetah and Leopard are always good while on a game drive with Karen Blixen Camp.
Explore this vibrant region under the guidance of an experienced Maasai tracker while on game drives during your Maasai Mara safari. Experience the vastness of the African plains while on a bush walk or gain a bird's eye view of the wildlife while floating above the Acacias during an early morning hot air balloon safari.
Cool off in the afternoon with a dip in the swimming pool and be left refreshed with a soothing massage. In the evenings delight in discovering the regions nocturnally active animals during a night drive before returning to camp and delighting in a feast under the star studded sky.
