The 45sqm luxury bush pavilions reflect the colours of Masai Mara and are equipped with noble furniture, a king size bed, ensuite bathroom with shower, hot water, flushing toilet and AC-power. The spacious terrace has a low bed, a swing, a dining table for private candlelight dinner and an outer bathtub where you can relax watching the hippos during daytime or at night laying under the stars.


Mara Timbo Camps cuisine is internationally orientated and specialized in Italian, Asian and African meals. You always have the choice between three menus with three courses, one of them vegetarian. As soon as the weather allows you dine in the bush under the open African sky in a very romantic setting at the fireplace directly to the river bank.


Mara Timbo Camp offers seven luxurious andspacious bush pavilions (each 45sqm) with en-suite bathrooms, tastefully decorated interiors, with warm blends of colour and unique furnishings. The bush pavilions are all under grass thatched roofs, providing cool temperatures during the day.
