GUIDE ON KAREN BLIXEN CAMP IN KENYA
The Oloisuk Concession (part of Mara North Conservancy) with the Mara River ribboning through it is the site of the Karen Blixen Camp, inspired by the 1920s living style of the famous novelist of the same name. 900 hectares of tranquil wilderness surround you, and as you lounge on your private wooden deck overlooking the river, hippos take long soaking baths in the water or lie basking on the shaded sandbanks. You could also spot crocodiles with their jaws wide open as they digest their food with the warmth of the sun and other fauna like zebras, impalas, buffalos and giraffes as they stop by cautiously for a drink. Elephants lumber through the vegetation raising their trunks to scent unseen danger and then take long, cooling showers. All these sights and the relaxed ambience of this mid-range camp enhances your Kenya wildlife holiday while the careful hospitality of the Maasai staff makes you feel welcome in their delightful world. The beautifully landscaped piece of property with stone walkways and thatched roofs has a spacious, comfortable lounge that also includes a bar and dining room with its rock detailing and wooden flooring lending a rustic charm. Choose a book from their library and take it outside, beside the river to read under wide parasols or pick out a comfortable perch near the pool. In the evenings, spend time around the campfire as you recount the adventurous activities of your AfricanMecca photo tour in Masai Mara National Reserve. After a delicious dinner cooked with locally produced ingredients, make your way to your tented room in the company of a Maasai guard.
The camp has 22 capacious tented rooms for their frill guests traveling in this expanse of East Africa, erected on elevated wooden decks with either double or twin beds, but on your request, two extra beds can also be set up for young kids. The camp also offers a family tent that comprises of two rooms with a shared patio. Solar panels silently generate the power to light your tent, and soft rugs spread on the wooden floor along with easy chairs that add comfort and a warm atmosphere to the deck. Textile mesh panels on canvas walls and the entrance flaps allow in the sights, sounds and scents of the wilderness while daybeds on the patio outside are perfect for an afternoon of leisure. The en-suite bathroom comes with bathrobes, flush toilet and an outdoor shower with an adjoining sunken bath for your use. Use the twin basins so you can gale through your morning routine and quickly leave for your game drive. Custom-built safari vehicles await to take you on your exploration of the private conservancy where you may have a chance to witness the unique phenomenon of the seasonal Masai Mara Wildebeest Migration on your bush vacation in Kenya (July through October). Your experienced guide will relate to you the little known nuances of animal behavior as you view the plethora of fauna in Masai Mara that includes more than 450 species of birds, assorted mammals and an astounding number of insects. You will discover the latter creatures are so vital to the ecosystem on your Kenya safari bush walks in the Mara North Conservancy. Also learn about the healing powers of the flora, and on your visit to the nearby Maasai village, you will understand their traditional lore, intensely in tune with nature. Via your AfricanMecca tour planner, add a balloon safari to your trip in the Masai Mara Game Reserve and aerially uncover the magnificent land populated with all kinds of interactive wildlife. End your expedition with a relaxing wellness session at the camp’s spa where sore muscles are gently soothed with warm rejuvenating oils.
