Hammerkop Migration Camp is located within the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, on Paradise Plains in a grove of tall trees and just 100 metres from the Mara River. The camp is overlooking a seasonal waterhole that attracts crocodiles and waterbirds.
Hammerkop Migration is a semi-permanent traditional tented safari camp with a total of just 7 tents, making it a very private atmosphere with personalised service. The large mess tent has views over the waterhole and towards the distant escarpment.
The area abounds with wildlife & birds, your game drive commences immediately when leaving the camp. Each tent has a long drop toilet and traditional bucket shower connecting directly at the rear. Hot showers are brought on demand.Our experienced safari chef provides delicious meals freshly baked each day, and the camp staff are on hand to make your stay a comfortable one.
At the end of each season the camp is packed up and removed so that the site can grow back into natural bushland and return to it's original residents, the wildlife of the area.
Located within the inner region of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve on the Narok County Council side, the camp is within easy reach of all wildebeest crossings on the Mara River as well as the Musiara Swamp area. The area itself is famous for its leopards.
Your game drive commences immediately when leaving the camp, there are not kms to be driven to reach the prime wildlife viewing areas. Camping in the bushland wilderness brings you close to nature, with the peace and tranquility of this unique natural environment.
