Mara Toto Camp

Mara Toto Camp opened in January 2013. It is a magical revisiting of the past, drawing from the designs of Africa’s original explorers and designed for those who search for East Africa’s romantic safari era. Here, you will experience the best of both worlds: the intense action of the Masai Mara ecosystem, as well as the more private 70,000-acre Mara North Conservancy.

Country

Kenya

Highlights

Mara Toto is an intimate (just five tents) and authentic safari camp, 100% solar powered with deliberate use of bucket-showers to recreate the romance of traditional safari camps. Access to both the Reserve and Mara North Conservancy give guests options of more privacy.

Need to Know

It is set down low, hidden from lights and noise and any sign of mankind. Under the grove of Africa ebony trees, its humble main area is lit by lantern and candlelit, simple in design, but just enough for all the comforts.


SafarisSafaris


Day game drives in specially designed Land Cruisers. Totally open-sided (a rarity in the Mara), the 300-degree view provides ideal circumstances for photography. Under the guidance of top guides, each vehicle comes fully-equipped with a stocked fridge and photography tools.

Wildlife HighlightsWildlife Highlights

The camp is locally famous for its leopard residents wandering the riverbanks. And is positioned to take best advantage of two migrations – the famous annual Serengeti migration and the green season migration from Loita Plains, an additional 50,000 wildebeest and over 100,000 zebras vying for grazing rights. Mara Toto is a place for the ardent safari-goer.

Local ActivitiesLocal Activities

Hot-air ballooning over the Mara is available at additional cost, and is a truly stunning way to experience the landscape and an unforgettable sunrise. If culture is of interest, then visits to Maasai bomas as well as local school and community projects (supported by Mara Toto) are possible, and a wonderful insight into the region’s colorful people.
