  • Savour fine cuisine

Karen Blixen Camp is in a private conservancy to the north of the Masai Mara reserve, and is a beautiful eco-friendly tented camp. The setting by the Mara River is just lovely, and it's entertaining listening to and watching the resident pod of hippos! The area is famed for its high density of lions and cheetahs, so with the big cats plus all the other incredible wildlife to be found here, you can expect the camp's guides to give you a really amazing wildlife experience. 

There are 22 luxury tents in the camp, so it's not one of the smallest camps you'll find in the Mara. However it feels like a small camp, and the attention to detail, great personal service from all the staff, and really wonderful food all combines to make this one of Tribes' favourite camps in the Masai Mara. The tents are roomy and very nicely furnished with a large comfortable bed, Persian rugs, a cosy armchair and a minibar with chilled drinks, giving you the ultimate in camping luxury. 

The main area is on a raised wooden deck and has separate dining and lounge sections. The food here is excellent, influenced by the latest food trends and using locally sourced ingredients.

To relax in between game activities, you can enjoy the swimming pool or perhaps take a massage or other spa treatment in the seclusion of your tent. Of course you may wish to do no more than sit on the viewing deck, a chilled glass to hand, watching wildlife such as hippo and elephant by the river as you relax.
