PRESS RELEASE: MARA PLAINS CAMP – BECOMES RELAIS & CHÂTEAUX MEMBER

It was announced at the International Congress of Relais & Châteaux in Paris, celebrating the association’s 60th year, that Mara Plains Camp, Kenya, has been accepted on all standards as a member camp based on its experience, fine cuisine, hosting and accommodation. “This is our third camp to become a Relais & Châteaux member, an honour and responsibility we don’t take lightly. The association stands for excellence at all levels and in general celebrates the art of living which in our case is all about the life changing experience of a safari,” says Dereck Joubert CEO Great Plains Conservation from Paris, last night.

Mara Plains reopened in August 2013, after being completely rebuilt to become one of Africa’s finest ecological camps. Located in the exclusive Olare Mororogi Conservancy, bordering the Maasai Mara National Reserve to the north, Mara Plains Camp has the largest traversing area of any camp in the Mara ecosystem with additional access to the Mara North Conservancy.

Mara Plains Camp has seven, expansive tents, each with views over the classic savannah grasslands of the Maasai Mara ecosystem, yet the camp is inconspicuously shaded by the riverine vegetation of the Ntiakitiak River. Of the seven tents two of these form a two-tent family suite on a shared deck, and for honeymooners one tent is perched above the river with its own rope-bridge access. Each spacious tent has a copper, free-standing bath, indoor shower includes the complimentary use of professional Canon EOS 7D camera equipment and Swarovski high-definition binoculars.
Mara Plains Camp joins its sister property ol Donyo Lodge, in Kenya’s southern Chyulu Hills, as East Africa’s only other Relais & Châteaux member property. Great Plains Conservation’s third member property, Zarafa Camp, in the Selinda Reserve of northern Botswana, was the recipient of last year’s Relais & Châteaux Environment Trophy 2013.
