SENTINEL MARA CAMP
$525 - $650
Sentinel Mara Camp captures the essence of traditional East African Safari hospitality. The seasonal nature of the camp (which is taken down during the rainy seasons) encourages rejuvenation of the vegetation and minimising impact on the environment.
As members of EcoTourism (Kenya) they are committed to sustainable community based conservation with local community elders receiving a portion of guests’ fees. They employ members of the local community and facilitate authentic encounters with the Masai, for guests to learn about their heritage, customs and culture.
There are seven large sleeping tents along the Mara River, furnished with twin or queen beds according to request. Tents also include a desk, chair, bedside tables and canvas wardrobe. There are en suite facilities with hot showers and porcelain flushing toilets. Solar lighting is provided in all tents, with the opportunity to charge phones and cameras in the lounge tent and vehicles.
Nestled in a forest on the banks of the Mara river this eco camp is set up inside the Masai Mara Reserve in a secluded site.
Being on high banks above the Mara River means that there are always hippo and crocodile sightings. Game drives are led by professional guides or local Masai "Spotters", along with their land cruiser safari vehicles. There is also the opportunity for guided bush walks nearby or bird walks in the forest. The camp can also arrange visits to a nearby Masai village for an opportunity to learn about their customs and culture.
