Mara Toto Camp is located on the bank of the Ntiakitiak River, at the northern tip of Kenya’s legendary Maasai Mara National Reserve. The area is renowned for its rich and diverse wildlife sightings.
Sleeping just eight people, Mara Toto Camp is an intimate, lantern-lit camp of canvas tents reminiscent of the 19th century’s expedition era designed with modern comforts. Set within a forest of acacia shrubs and ebony trees, the camp is also within easy reach of wide open savannah. The large, open-sided communal tent has WiFi, comfortable furniture and a separate dining area. Just outside, a fire pit and additional seating take advantage of the camp’s natural surroundings.
Food and service
The small staff team are friendly and relaxed, giving Mara Toto Camp a highly personalised feel. Meals focus on international favourites made to an exceptional standard. Served up at the camp’s communal or private decking areas, or on safari picnics, many guests consider the food a surprise highlight of their stay. Alcoholic and soft drinks are available.
Each of the four extra-large tents at Mara Toto Camp is raised off of the forest floor on a wooden base and enjoys its own private sheltered decking area where guests can dine privately or simply relax. Inside, tents are spacious, with king-sized or twin beds, safari chairs, lanterns, and en suites with hot running water and flushable toilets. Mosquito nets cover the tent’s large windows which look out onto the Ntiakitiak River.
Mara Toto Camp is considered a prime location for wildlife spotting, with elephant, lion and leopard all found within its vicinity. The camp is also within easy reach of the Mara North Private Conservancy, which is also accessible during safari trips. Hot air balloon rides over the savannah plains offer a memorable way to witness the great annual migration. Visits to the local communities can also be arranged, where guests can experience traditional Maasai culture.
Mara Toto Camp’s light canvas tents ensure minimal impact on the surrounding land, and the camp is fully powered by solar energy.
