Mara Nyika
Naboisho Conservancy / Kenya

“Nyika” means “Large Plains or Great Plains,” and Mara Nyika is the perfect sister camp to Mara Plains in Kenya. It rings with the romance of the vast open plains of East Africa from a time when light canvas flapped in the light breeze across those plains as wildebeest and zebras call to each other and at twilight, “Simba,” the great lion’s roar across the Nyika.

Typical of the Maasai Mara’s ancient Nyika is the flat-topped Acacia kirkii trees. While the camp is in a valley, actually straddling a small stream, the light-coloured canvas tents are set up high under the trees' canopy to offer guests awe-inspiring views out over the bush. Many may think of Mara Nyika as a treetop camp, with the tents' walkways to the main area giving a feel of a treehouse under canvas. However, the camp’s ethic and inspiration are still one of exploration and adventure - a sense of impermanence in this ever-changing world.

Our Experience


Mara Nyika, located in the private and exclusive 50 000-acre Naboisho Conservancy, is unique because it allows guests to explore the conservancy and further afield with safari drives into the Maasai Mara Reserve. Guest’s stay enables Great Plains to support over 500 Maasai families with a sustainable livelihood through the payment of conservation fees, which ultimately ensures the conservation of the wildlife in this vital corridor of the Maasai Mara eco-system.

Distance from Wilson Airport in Nairobi, Kenya

1hr 15min flight to Naboisho airstrip followed by 40-minute drive to the camp, with game viewing en route.

Should you wish to fly in via private aircraft, please let us know and we will assist with the necessary arrangements.
