Instinct of the Mara is a newly opened camp that is idyllically surrounded by lush forests and unique nature, in the secluded southeast of the Masai Mara on the private Olderkesi property. The area is home to one of the largest wild dog populations in the Mara ecosystem. Between the complete privacy of the conservancy, solar powered utilities and two fresh water springs, Instinct of the Mara couldn’t be farther from the minibus flooded Maasai Mara region to the North West.
Instinct of the Mara conveys incomparable “Out of Africa” charm and is characterized by attentive and personal service. Together with your ranger, you design the day in the wilderness according to your wishes. In this beautiful and animal-rich region, unforgettable safari experiences are guaranteed. The fine meals are taken in the main tent.
Accommodation and Meals
Instinct of the Mara has eight Premium tents and two Luxury tents, all nestled beneath the foliage. Interiors are warm, cosy and rustic with dark wooden floors covered in red rugs and a plethora of dark wooden furnishings and en-suite bathrooms to the back of the tents with double vanities.

One even offers a private plunge pool while the other has a large private deck.
The kitchen will spoil you with homemade delicacies all day long. In the lounges or on your private terrace you can relax between the safari activities and watch the passing wildlife. Before and after dinner by candlelight, you meet for a drink at the fireplace and end an eventful day.
