On the way spot the charming chapel built at the foot of the escarpment.

Sentrim Mara Camp
Sentrim Mara is located in Maasai Mara Game Reserve, 3 km after Sekenani gate. The entire 31 tents are spread out in serene surroundings amongst Acacia trees that surround the camp. The main guest area consists of the reception, lounge area, restaurant, and bar. Each of the spacious tents has a modern ensuite bathroom, hot and cold showers, writing desk and an elevated private balcony for spectacular views of the sunsets and the hills, which have abundant wildlife. The tents have personal closets, flush toilets and sockets for battery charging for cameras. There is power for lighting in every room, a bathroom, and flushing toilets.

Following an early breakfast, depart on a morning game drive, returning to the camp mid-morning.

Leaving the Masai Mara after breakfast travel across the ‘breadbasket’ of Kenya, where acres of wheat and barley litter the landscape as you head north to Narok, the district headquarters of this part of Maasailand.
