Karen Blixen Camp - 5 Stars Plus

Karen Blixen Camp - 5 Stars Plus

Set on the bank of the Mara River, the location is spectacular. Throughout the day, elephants, giraffes, zebras and impalas come for a drink while a large hippo pod rest lazily in the river. The Camp evokes a feeling of the early 1920s with beautiful and comfortable furniture. You will find that Karen Blixen Camp is a step back in time with the luxury of today.
