The Masai Mara Reserve is situated in the Koiyaki Lemek Conservation area. The Karen Blixen Camp is located on the banks of the Mara River on 66 acres of private land leased from a Masai landlord. Ideally situated, the camp in Masai Mara, Kenya, is nestled between the great Mara plains in the back and the spectacular escarpment and Mara River in the front.
The river runs the length of the property and provides a stable source of thirsty game throughout the day. Guests can watch zebra, impala, elephant and giraffe to name a few. The Karen Blixen Camp is situated in one of the most densely populated wildlife areas in the world, making it the ideal location for Masai Mara game viewing.
This Kenya safari lodge can be reached via air and road transfers from a variety of locations. Local flights form Nairobi, Mombasa, Naivasha, Samburu, Lewa Downs and Nayuki. Private charter flights from other locations are also an option. Mara North Conservancy Airstrip is the preferred airstrip as it is only a 40-minute drive from the camp.
Driving from Nairobi takes approximately 5 hours during the dry season and during the green season, you can expect to be on the road for about 7 hours.
