About Speke's

An exclusive and intimate camp set in a private area of the legendary Maasai Mara, this permanent tented camp is styled with rustic charm and provides the creature comforts that make you feel at home in the bush. 

With 8 permanent private tents, all privately en-suited with hot showers and flushing toilets and natural-styled furniture, this camp provides a casual and homely feel that will delight and makes for a perfect base for any Maasai Mara safari.

The bar area adjoins with the stylish lounge with a library and an area to wind down. The dining tent provides an intimate and relaxing area and an additional tent is dedicated to photographers wishing to download and process their images.

 

Situated near the Olare Orok river and with overhanging indigenous trees, the solar-powered camp is run by friendly and professional staff from the surrounding areas, empowering communities and contributing to the conservation and management of the Maasai Mara.

With resident lions and elephants, experience a less-travelled area of this incredible reserve, which makes for a more private journey, and easily access the rest of the park including the dramatic crossings of the Mara River during the Great Wildebeest Migration season.

Maasai

Mara

 

The Maasai Mara is one of the finest wildlife destinations in the world, offering spectacular scenery and superb wildlife viewing.

 

Mara, in the Maa language, means spotted, or dotted, referring to the iconic lone acacia trees that are found dotted across the savannah. Located at the northern region of the Serengeti Ecosystem, the land is characterised by endless plains, expansive grasslands and an incredibly diverse range of wildlife.

 

The premier reserve supports one of the highest concentrations of wildlife, particularly the large cat predators such as the lion, cheetah and leopard and provides some of the best wildlife viewing opportunities. There is an excellent chance of seeing elephant, buffalo, rhino, zebra, giraffe and other mammals and herbivores, as well a diverse range of birdlife, including large birds of prey that soar in the skies.  

 

The Maasai Mara hosts one of the world’s greatest wildlife spectacles: the annual great migration of over 2 million animals with incredible and dramatic river crossings of wildebeest at the Mara River.

 

Located in Maasai land, in the scenic Great Rift Valley, this world-class reserve is rich with breathtaking scenery and beautiful panoramas, and has been made famous by many BBC and National Geographic documentaries, which also makes this park one of the top destinations in the world for wildlife viewing and photography.
