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.
