Good news for Kenya's Masai Mara Lions

After the sad incident that occured in the Masai Mara just over a week ago, where 3 lions were poisoned to death, we're pleased to be bringing more positive news regarding probably the most famous lions in the world.

Stars of many BBC-TV documentaries, The Marsh Pride, are resident in the national reserve, and yesterday they introduced the two youngest members of their family to an adoring public. Two three-week old cubs emerged from the undergrowth as water levels were briefly high due to unseasonal rainfall levels. Their mother was keen to move the little cubs to higher ground and increased safety, which meant that they came out into the open for the very first time, to the delight of Dominic, a local Masai guide and just a handful of fortunate clients. Kamili's Tim and Mandy Henshall were delighted to be amongst them, whilst staying at nearby Sentinel Camp (a delightful 4+ star 6-room seasonal tented camp hidden within the forest on the banks of the Mara River, deep within Marsh Pride territory).

The Marsh Pride swells to upto 40 lions from time to time, so whilst the loss of 3 of their members was a major loss, the pride remains dominant and thriving in one of Africa’s premier wildlife destinations.

As Tim said “The Marsh Pride is known and loved the world over. These gorgeous little additions – who we’ve cheekily christened Kamili and Kamageo – are the latest stars to join the pride. Let’s hope we can all work to ensure their safety to bring joy to the many people drawn to this amazing destination”.

Late last year Sanctuary Olonana, the award winning tented camp situated on a private stretch of the Mara River received an extensive upgrade to the public areas of the lodge as well as a soft refurbishment to the tents suits and pool area. We wanted the local Masai ladies to play an active part in the refurbishment and they offered to “mud” the interior walls in all of the main areas, curio shop and offices. This is the same technique used in their own houses and involves mixing cow dung, sand and cement placed on the walls. A complete new entrance was built where guests will be welcomed with a refreshing drink after arriving at the lodge or when returning from a game viewing activity. The dining room received new furniture including new tables, chairs, lamps, table linen, lanterns, side boards, cabinets and lighting. The lounge area received new relaxing sofas, tables, ottomans, coffee tables, carpet and lighting fixtures. The library now features a new whole new look bookcase, sofa, desk with a laptop for guests to use and a new board games table. In addition the rooms received new bedside tables, lamps a large carpet and re-upholstered day beds. Please visit our website at http://www.sanctuaryretreats.com/kenya-camps-olonana for a look at the newly upgraded camp featuring interior décor with a new contemporary design.

Mara Toto Camp, Kenya - extended seasons

Mara Toto Camp is a brand new addition to the Great Plains Conservation Collection in the world famous Masai Mara Reserve, and will now be opening for 11 months of the year (closed for one month after Easter, each year). It complements Great Plains Conservation's existing Kenya products - Mara Plains Camp, ol Donyo Lodge and Ride Kenya horse safaris.

Mara Toto is a magical revisiting of the past, drawing from the designs of original explorers and created for those who want to get a step closer to the romantic era of Kenya and East Africa. Under off-white canvas with shadows dancing against candle-lit tents, the camp is nestled in the cool shade of a grove of ebony trees on the banks of the Ntiakitiak River which cuts through the private Olare Orok conservancy.

It is set down low, hidden from lights and noise and any sign of mankind. It is a time-capsule of an era when Finch Hatton, Barclay Cole and Delaware went on safari through these parts in search of adventure, romance and Africa’s big game.

The five tents are large and spacious, light and airy, with en-suite toilet and showers where guests enjoy piping hot water from huge brass period showers while listening to hippos snort and grunt in the river below.

Mara Toto is authentic safari chic, staying true to the language of the 1920’s with some of the best access to the Masai Mara as well as the Mara North Conservancy. Here guests will experience 4x4 vehicle safaris with qualified guides and the best of both worlds, the intense game action of the ecosystem and the quiet and stylish retreat of their own private haven.

The camp is positioned to take best advantage of two migrations, the famous annual Serengeti migration and the second green season migration which brings in nearly half a million wildebeest and over 100,000 zebras playing the game of chasing storms for best grazing. The area is a predators dream!

Mara Toto is a stylish experience and adventure camp that is head and shoulders above any other in the region, matching the service levels, specialised guiding, design and quality that has become associated with Great Plains Conservation.

Great Plains Conservation opens Mara Toto Camp

Great Plains Conservation is pleased to announce, on 28th January, the opening of its second camp in the greater Masai Mara ecosystem, Mara Toto Camp

Toto’ means baby in Swahili, and was often used as a term of endearment in reference to young safari staff in the days of early exploration. But today, in our context, it is simply meant out of respect to its sister camp, Mara Plains, which has developed a phenomenal reputation. We are certain Mara Toto will follow suit.

Mara Toto positions itself squarely in the heart of magnificent predator country and is a place for the ardent safari-goer. Spend your days out – all day – exploring the 70,000 acre private Mara North Conservancy, or go in deep into the famous Masai Mara Game Reserve to catch the river crossings or a foray around Topi Plains.

Shaded by the riverine forest the camp consists of five custom-designed tents of light-colored flowing canvas open on the horizontal side with canopied ceilings. En-suite shower tents including flush loos, bucket showers and plumbed water ensure utter comfort.  Each of the tents is decorated with a nod to the style of early exploration and discovery – an eclectic, yet coordinated assembly of what early travellers may have carried, items such as brass chandeliers, old Indian chests, local natural materials. The whole aura is refreshing, speaking to romance and exploration. Keeping with the finest in the industry, each Mara Toto tent is kitted with the finest Swarovski Optik binoculars for guest use.
