Sentinel Mara Camp

Sentinel Mara Camp is an owner run luxury seasonal camp along the banks of the Mara River within the Masai Mara National Reserve. It is well hidden within the riverine forest so that you don’t know that you are approaching until you are actually in this gorgeous little camp.


The feel is deliciously old fashioned with only 7 en suite tents together with the lounge and dining tents along the river in the forest offering excellent privacy. Specially designed campaign furniture adorns the camp creating the atmosphere of the traditional East African safari while at the same time affording a significant measure of luxury to guests

Cuisine is always in keeping with Sentinel’s very high standards, attention to detail and warm hospitality. The all inclusive rate means you can simply relax and enjoy all that is on offer in terms of snacks, drinks, guided nature walks, game drives, starlit dinners and champagne bush breakfasts during your stay.

The excellent standard of guiding will have guests gripped and entertained whether on a game drive or a 1 hour walk in the region of the camp. Our bespoke approach ensures the daily agenda of each group of visitors is tailor made and flexible taking their personal preferences into account

The seasonal aspect of the camp with no permanent structures offers guests an experience of being authentically close to nature and its location in the less visited Musiara Marsh area of the Reserve ensures excellent game viewing. We are fortunate to have 4 different ecozones on our doorstep, with both the BBC’s Big Cat Dairies and Disney’s African Cats being filmed here. In keeping with our environmental values the camp has minimum impact on the environment.

A warm welcome and unforgettable stay at Sentinel Mara Camp awaits you, so that you have memories of your safari that last for a lifetime!

We will gladly arrange a balloon safari or visit to a Masai village as well as a half or full day walk along the escarpment overlooking the Reserve.


The dining and lounge tents are at the center of the camp with its amazing view well appointed with an area where you can sit around the camp fire in the evenings.

Whether in the dining tent watching hippo and crocodile in the river below, soaking up the untamed vistas during a bush breakfast or enjoying the romance of a starlit four course dinner you will have a fine dining experience.

Delicious and varied meals from fresh food are prepared daily by our chefs.
