Ashnil Mara Camp overlooks the confluence of the Mara and Olkeju Rivers, with forty luxury tents set amongst the riverine forest. This is a fairly new addition to the region, with a modern feel and more of a hotel atmosphere than that of a traditional and remote small safari camp.

Located along the Banks of Sand River in Masai Mara, there are high chances to spot and sight wildebeest crossing over the river while at your tent.  After your game drive, you can take a dip in our swimming pool or simply relax by the pool. This is the perfect place to relax and laze around in the calm afternoons.

You have great chances to spot, the big five, lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants, and other wildlife species in the Masai Mara. Experiencing the Great Wildebeest Crossing Mara River and Wildebeest Migration while staying at the camp is close enough to these stampedes a yearly happening.

Game Drives 

Game drives tend to be the principal means of going about spotting wildlife, and are likely to comprise a great deal of your safari – so it goes without saying that this aspect of your experience is a special point of focus for us. We believe the way to get the most out of your time is that everyone is furnished with their exclusive vehicle, and private spotter and guide

Balloon Safaris

Balloon flights are available daily in Maasai Mara and take off from designated sites where the disturbance to animals is kept to a minimum. Your safari vehicle drops you off at the take-off site and picks you up from your landing site. The flight is followed by a champagne breakfast “in the bush”, with a well-laid-out seating arrangement and waiters on hand, to give you a fitting finale to your memorable flight in the wild.

Game Guided Walks

Offering a refreshingly alternative view of the wilderness, a guided nature walk promises panoramic vistas, gentle exercise, and a fascinating insight into the world of African trees, flowers, insects, reptiles, birds, and animals. It also offers the ultimate contrast to the game drive.

Maasai Village Visit

A visit to a Maasai village is almost inevitable when travelling to the Maasai Mara. The Maasai (or Masai) are mostly known for the colourful garments and jewellery they wear, their warriors and high jumps, which continue to fascinate tourists.
