Wajee Mara Camp

Wajee Mara Camp is a budget safari camp that borders the Maasai Mara National Reserve about a kilometer from the Sekenani main gate. The Camp is approached by an access road that branches off the main Narok – Sekenani road and which can be an escorted walk through the manyattas.
The Camp is intimate in character, with just eleven en-suite tents and one dining cabin tucked in between the trees of an indigenous forest on the banks of a seasonal river. A natural river that teems with birds and wildlife. The Maasai Mara Game Reserve is on the other side of the river bank and at night the Camp comes alive with sounds of the hysterical laughter of hyenas, deep grunts of male lions and distant hoot of the African wood owl.

Our Activities

Game drives are designed to take you close to the wildlife rich spots in the Maasai Mara.

For that intimate encounter, take an exciting guided walking safari.

To gain a rare insight into one of Africa best-known traditional cultures we recommend a visit to a Masai Manyatta (village).

The hot balloon safari over the Mara River and the Masai Mara plains is an experience you will never forget!

Eco-Friendly

The camp makes optimal use of available natural resources, respecting the authenticity of the Maasai community to provide a conducive environment for the local and overseas tourists whilst all the time conserving the natural habitat.
The facility utilizes solar energy for lighting and water heating which has minimal carbon emissions. Waste generated from the camp is processed to make compost manure which is used for the vegetable garden and flower beds.
The staff at Wajee Mara Camp are informed on the importance of conserving their natural ecosystem as a national heritage. Tourists also come to appreciate sustainability i.e. future existence of wildlife and fauna is a collective responsibility of all the stakeholders.
The serene beauty of Mara, the natural cooling from the indigenous forest trees, sounds of running river, birds and animals makes Wajee Mara Camp an ideal and affordable getaway to the Masai Mara

One with Local Community

We believe strongly that by engaging with the local community to continue to appreciate wildlife tourism provides a reliable and sustainable source of living. Indeed, by continuing to work towards improving their overall welfare, is how we are able to create a long-term sustainable conservation model that will ensure the survival of Kenya’s precious and rich heritage of wildlife, birds and fauna for the future generations. Today, all of our staff at the Camp are from the local community and can organize ‘Masai Market’ for you to buy handcrafted artifacts in a friendly atmosphere, Masai dance nights, Masai culture tours etc. Thus, creating a dedicated Wajee Mara Camp family proud of what we can all achieve together.
We also organize small workshops for local Tour guides/drivers in professional Photography that makes them more knowledgeable guides able to compliment you in taking superior photos.
We encourage the local community to have organized sports events, here Wajee Mara Camp sponsors a regional soccer tournament by providing some of the sports equipment and trophies.

You play an important role in this conservation story. By visiting us and enjoying the wildlife and birds of the Masai Mara in a sustainable, unobtrusive, and respectful way.
