  • About

Immerse yourself in the natural wonders of the Masai Mara when you stay at Ishara Mara where you can sleep under the African stars and watch wildlife come to drink at the riverbank.

“You’re not here by chance, you’re here because you followed the signs” reads the carved wooden post that welcome you to this 15-suite camp whose name is translated from the Swahili word for ‘sign’.

The call of the wild is all around you from the nesting weaver birds in the boughs of acacia trees overhanging the Talek River to the Big Five awaiting on the plains of Kenya’s famous national park.

To capture this vast array of life, camp provides guests with the use of the Mara’s first official Canon brand experience centre. Complete with high-end cameras, lenses, accessories, binoculars, photo printers, a professional photo-editing suite, and a resident expert you have the perfect opportunity to hone your photography skills while on safari.

Armed with your camera you can get out into the bush to trek lion or leopard on board a custom-built, luxury Land Cruiser. From panoramic views to removable seats for a totally flat shooting angles and padded storage for stowing away unused lenses or valuables.

Enjoy a romantic night sleeping outside on an observation deck under a scattergun of stars. While this is perfect for couples Ishara Mara is built to accommodate all travellers from solo to family groups. You can choose from a river suite with private deck, to safari suite. All the luxury tents include modern amenities and artistic design echoing the spirit of Africa.

During your stay you can relax with a signature spa treatment a Aya Spa, and while away the hours in the infinity pool with a tiling inspired by Maasai jewellery. Enjoy a candlelit bath and sundowner on your private deck before dinner. The culinary team designs a daily menu infusing global cuisine with local ingredients and paired with the finest wines and spirits. 

Bush dining is also available at Ishara Mara for those seeking an authentic experience immersed in nature.
