Tangulia Mara Camp

Masai Mara

The Camp Overview

Tangulia Mara is a tented safari camp situated on a bend of the Mara River and overlooks the Olotulo-Murt springs and salt lick. With few natural salt licks in the Mara ecosystem, wildlife activity in front of the camp is constant with a variety of animals passing through. The camp’s ideal location, just north of the Musiara area, allows easy access for game drives around the Musiara Marsh, the short grass plains, and Rhino Ridge, into the Reserve or across the Mara River bridge into the Mara Triangle which is west of the river. Both areas have rich biodiversity and offer prime wildlife and big cat viewing; and, during the migration, ready access to some of the main river-crossings. The name Tangulia means “to lead” in Kiswahili and is at the core of the camp’s existence. With over twenty-five years of guiding in the Mara, the owners Jackson Looseyia & Dominic Nchoe are more than qualified to give guests a truly authentic insight to Maasai culture, customs, beliefs and knowledge of the fauna and flora here. Tangulia has seven ensuite tents and a family tent consisting of two ensuite bedrooms with a shared sitting area. Tangulia Mara camp is a rustic and cozy tented bush camp perched on a leafy hill overlooking the Olotulo-Murt salt lick, by the Mara River. It is located on private land and has an emphasis on authentic safari and African experiences. Tangulia is a Swahili word meaning “to lead.” Our camp’s mission is to be the leaders in African Safari by allowing our guests a comfortable private stay with an array of unique safari experiences that will remain in your heart for a lifetime.

Tangulia Mara Camp Accommodation

Tangulia has 8 ensuite tents in total, 1 family tent, and 7 other tents (which can be configured to be double or twin) positioned spaciously with views over the salt lick towards the Mara river.The leafy bushes surround the rest of our tents and leave each one feeling cool, private and intimate. Winding paths lead to each tent, and with our camp being unfenced, wildlife is welcome to roam freely around the camp. Our camp Askaris escort guests back to their rooms at night. Running taps and hot shower are available throughout. Our baths and toilet areas are ensuite. Note that the water on the tap is ideal for washing up not for drinking. We provide clean drinking water in beaded glass bottles in each bedside table and bathroom vanity. Our homely tents are cleaned every day by our dedicated staff and replenished with eco-friendly handmade supplies. We source our incredible products locally and give our guests the best quality hypoallergenic and gorgeously scented soaps and shampoos throughout their stay. 

The large and open  sitting and dining room overlooks the Olotulo Murt salt lick and the Mara River.  A wide wooden deck hugs the front of the sitting area, where you can watch the wildlife come and go as they please without having to leave the camp.  The camps decor reflects the Masai ownership and furniture in the camp has been made onsite, from fallen indigenous trees.  In the evening, gather around the  fireplace with a drink in hand, and reminisce on the days events.
