The Sambuk Suite at Mara Nyika

Tent of the property Great Plains Mara

Experience a most unusual stay in Kenya in the Sambuk Suite at Mara Nyika. This accommodation seamlessly immerses you in this natural setting. Typical of East Africa design, it's the ideal camp for friends and family to immerse themselves in the heart of the bush and Swahili culture. During the day, the dry and sparse vegetation makes it easy to observe animals. On your return, relax in the comfort of your central living room or on the outdoor covered veranda, as you watch wildlife roaming freely in this protected ecosystem. Alternatively, enjoy a relaxing soak in the copper tub. At the end of the day, gather under the canopy–it offers both privacy and breathtaking views of the bush. Dine with the unique feeling of being alone in the world.


All meals, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, scheduled wildlife viewing activities are included as well as air transfers, guide and vehicle.

  • A “Sambuk” is a type of dhow typical of East African traditional wooden sailing vessels, often with a distinctive keel design with a sharp curve right below the top of the prow. And so, Kenya’s brand new 2-bedroomed Sambuk Suite at Mara Nyika pays homage to the Swahili culture and language component found in this East African region. The design is characteristic of its flowing canvas roofs and welcoming space for guests to relax in
  • This 2-bedroomed suite is set away from the main camp area and up high under the tree’s canopy to offer guests awe-inspiring views out over the bush and total privacy

Good to know

  • The return scheduled seat in plane air transfers from Nairobi Wilson or properties in the greater Maasai Mara region to this camp are automatically included in the full nightly rate - subject to a minimum 2-night stay.
