Karen Blixen Camp


Karen Blixen Camp is an eco-friendly luxury camp that gives a sense of the exiting explorer days when the savannah was seldom visited and elaborate and comfortable camps were set up providing a luxurious and stylish retreat after each day’s adventure.

Karen Blixen Camp comprises 22 large luxury canvas tents each placed with undisturbed view along the Mara River. The stylish restaurant, the reception, the lounge and bar and the gift shop with internet are set on a raised wooden deck and furnished with accurate reproductions of Karen Blixen’s private furniture to fit in with the cozy atmosphere.

The beautiful laid swimming pool offers relaxation and even a little exercise in-between game drives. Our resident masseuse offers a wide range of wellness and beauty treatments.

Enjoy a drink while overlooking the wildlife at the Mara River, Karen Blixen Camp is the perfect place to sit back and relax with a gin and tonic overlooking the Mara River and the wildlife coming to drink, whilst exchanging stories about the adventures of the day.

Karen Blixen Camp is committed to responsible wildlife experiences. We invite our guests to explore and understand the complexity of the Masai Mara Ecosystem with its great wildlife. Understanding the intricacies of how the Masai Mara Ecosystem works adds the ultimate dimension to the very unique and outstanding wildlife experience.
 
Game Drives: Game drives are encouraged within Mara North Conservancy for the utmost exclusive and private safari experience with low impact tourism and controlled vehicle density. On request and during the great migration we drive into the Masai Mara National Reserve.
 
Game Walking: Game walking with armed guides is arranged for those who wish to experience the magnitude of the Mara savannah on foot.
 
Nature Walks: Nature walks are kept within the camp and focus entirely on the rich birdlife and little insects inhabiting the area and how the Masai make use of the indigenous plants for medical and ritual purposes.
 
Balloon Safaris: Balloon safaris will take you high above the impressive Masai Mara plains, and gliding quietly through the wind is truly a magical and breathtaking experience.
