Mara Rianta Camp

Masai Mara, Kenya

Mara Rianta Camp

A medium-sized luxury lodge, Mara Rianta Camp is ideally situated in the northeast of the Maasai Mara Reserve, just outside the private Mara North conservancy, and directly overlooking the Mara River.

Mara Rianta Camp is situated in the northeast of the Maasai Mara Reserve, just outside the private Mara North conservancy. It features 20 tents, all of which overlook the Mara River. The game in this region of the Masai Mara is consistently good, with the camp's location alongside the Mara River ensuring that excellent game-viewing is never far away.

Part of the Neptune Hotels chain, Mara Rianta is a medium-size camp with a spacious restaurant, bar, spa, and a very nice pool overlooking the Mara River. Despite its size and generous facilities, Mara Rianta still retains much of the charm and character of a classic East African bush camp. The main guest areas and terrace are raised on wooden decking and feature dark wood furnishings and canvas ceilings supported by chunky wooden beams. Guests are housed in tented rooms on raised decks, neatly spaced out along the banks of the Mara River.

Mara Rianta is booked on an all-inclusive basis - activities include 2 daily game drives in the Mara North Conversancy. The camp is located within easy reach of the Mara North airstrip, and so is suitable for quick fly-in visits to Masai Mara, and is often combined with time on the coast.


Mara Rianta features 20 tented rooms, built on raised wooden decks overlooking the Mara River. Each room features an exterior deck that can be used for private dining, separate sitting area, and an en-suite bathroom with solar-powered shower. The higher category tents also feature a Jacuzzi bathtub.

Facilities in the tent include:
King Size or twin bed with fine linens
Butler on call 
En-suite facilities with solar heated hot and cold running water
Large shower
Two hand wash basins
Private WC
Sitting Area with lounge chairs
Writing desk
In-room safe


The Mara Rianta is booked on a fully inclusive basis. Breakfast and lunch are buffet-style, while dinner is a la carte with a choice of appetizers, pasta, main courses and desserts, and a selection of Kenyan cheeses.

Meals are typically served in the Acacia dining room, though lunches and evening BBQs may be served around the pool. Private bush meals are also offered, and there is an in-tent dining service.

The Zebra Bar and Lounge serves a selection of drinks (local beers, spirits and selected wines are included) and snacks, cakes and teas, and is the ideal spot to relax after an afternoon game drive.
