Mara Under Canvas is una small tented camp located in the Serengeti Mara region.

The camp is set about 10 minutes away from the Mara River. This sector of the park, bordering Masai Mara, hosts throughout the year many resident species but from July to October, with the wildebeest migration roaming all around and crossing the river from one side to another while straddling the border between Kenya and Tanzania, it really gets a boost of vitality.

Mara Under canvas offers an upper-mid level of service and consists of 10 tents. Each tent has 2 twin beds that can be combined to become a double bed [triples can be arranged on request], en-suite bathroom with running water in basin, flush loo, while hot water for the shower is supplied morning and evening at the time agreed with the camp staff. Electricity is provided by solar panels and accumulated into batteries for night supply however there are no sockets in the rooms and mobiles and video devices need to be charged at the mess tent.

Electricity at the mess tent and in the lounge is provided by generator. The camp is complemented by the unfailing campfire.

Mara Under Canvas also accepts children under 6 years. Remember that the camp is not fenced and children have to be accompanied by an adult at all time.

Pictures refers to the sister camp located in Bologonja, Bologonja undercanvas. The two camps are exactly the same, except of course for the setting.
