Eco-Friendly Practices at Sentinel Mara Camp: A Commitment to the Environment

At Sentinel Mara Camp, we believe that responsible tourism is the key to preserving the natural beauty and biodiversity of the Maasai Mara. Being surrounded by breathtaking landscapes, we recognise the critical importance of preserving this unique ecosystem, which is why we enforce several key initiatives of preserving the land we call home.

Here’s a closer look at our eco-friendly initiatives in celebration of Environmental Month.


Sentinel Mara Camp is constructed with the environment in mind. Our tents are designed to blend seamlessly with the natural landscape, minimising visual and environmental impact. We use locally sourced materials to reduce our carbon footprint and support the local economy


To minimise our reliance on non-renewable energy, Sentinel Mara Camp is powered by solar energy. Our solar panels provide electricity for lighting, heating, and charging electronic devices. This transition to renewable energy sources significantly reduces our carbon emissions and promotes a cleaner, greener environment


Water is a precious resource, and we take measures to use it wisely. There is ample drinking water in your tent, stored in a stainless-steel water bottle to reduce plastic waste. Our commitment to water conservation helps protect the local water supply and supports the surrounding wildlife.


Effective waste management is crucial to maintaining the pristine condition of the Maasai Mara. At Sentinel Mara Camp, we follow a waste and recycling program. Organic waste is composted, while recyclable materials are processed appropriately


Sustainability extends beyond our camp’s boundaries. We actively engage with the local Maasai community, supporting education, healthcare, and economic development initiatives. By working closely with our neighbours, we foster a sense of shared responsibility for preserving the environment. Our guests are encouraged to participate in community activities, gaining a deeper understanding of the Maasai culture and the importance of conservation.


The Maasai Mara is home to an incredible array of wildlife, and their protection is a top priority for us. Sentinel Mara Camp supports local conservation organisations in their anti-poaching efforts and wildlife monitoring programs. Our guided safaris are conducted with the utmost respect for the animals and their habitats, ensuring that our presence does not disturb the delicate balance of the ecosystem.


At Sentinel Mara Camp, we are proud of our eco-friendly practices and our dedication to preserving the natural beauty of the Maasai Mara. We invite you to join us in our commitment to sustainability. Whether you’re enjoying a solar-powered hot shower, participating in a community project, or simply marveling at the wildlife, you can rest assured that your stay at Sentinel Mara Camp is helping to make a positive impact on the environment.

BOOK YOUR STAY with us and experience the harmony of luxury and sustainability. Together, we can ensure that the wonders of the Maasai Mara endure for as long as possible!
