During this safari, you can choose to stay in one of the following lodges:

Ashnil Mara camp

Ashnil Mara camp is located within the Maasai Mara National Reserve and close to the Mara River famous for the wildebeest migration. The Mara more often than not has been described as Kenya’s finest wildlife reserve due to the abundant flora and fauna and the gentle rolling grasslands that ensure the animals are never out of sight. Everything about it is outstanding.

There are 40 luxury tents overlooking the plains of the Maasai Mara and includes luxury ensuite bathrooms, walk-in closets, and a sun deck for relaxation while watching game. The restaurant serves international, oriental, and African traditional cuisines. Buffet setting is the preferred serving style but requests out of the normal buffet served can be arranged. There are other available options in place that can be arranged on request like bubbly bush breakfast and picnic lunch boxes.

Fig tree camp

The camp is located on the banks of the Talek River and offers both luxury tents and chalet accommodation. A new addition at Fig tree camp are the Ngaboli tents, ten presidential tents built on a private wing of the camp.

Services at Fig tree camp include game drives, night safaris, game walks, bush black tie dinners, and champagne breakfasts on the planes of the Masai Mara. Also based at Fig tree camp is Adventures Aloft balloon safaris which fly daily from the camp.

Governors' camp

Governors’ camp nestles in the forest along the winding banks of the Mara River, it’s waters teeming with bird-life, hippo, and crocodile, in the heart of Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve. The setting is magical, so much so that almost a century ago it was reserved exclusively for Kenya’s colonial governors.

Some of the 37 tents line the riverbank, tucked into the forest. You will enjoy uninterrupted views of the Mara River, others have views across the sweeping plains of the Masai Mara. Created in 1972, Governors’ camp set new standards in luxury for a tented camp. Today it’s still Africa’s best.

Everything is under canvas, all tents have en-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water and flushing toilets. There is a bar tent with deck overlooking the Mara River and dining tent with views over the plains. Governors' camp has just been awarded a silver eco rating from Eco-Tourism Kenya due to its sustainable tourism practices in place in camp.

Mara serena safari lodge

Located at the very center of the famous Mara triangle of the world-renowned Masai Mara National Reserve, the Mara serena safari lodge is the ultimate safari destination. Set high on a bush-cloaked hill with long views over the savannah and down to the winding coils of the hippo-filled Mara River, it stands center stage to one of Africa's most dramatic wildlife arenas, with a ringside seat for the greatest wildlife show on earth, the legendary migration of the wildebeest.

Styled to echo the circular motif of a traditional Maasai manyatta, the lodge blends international sophistication with raw African beauty, while featuring twin rows of individual rooms, each with its own view of the famous Mara River. The central bar and dining areas enjoy spectacular views, as does the rock-surround swimming pool.

Each luxuriously-presented room is accommodated in its own stand-alone modular unit, with uninterrupted views, private balcony, and spacious seating area. Activities include three daily game drives in custom-built traditional safari vehicles, sundowners in the bush, breakfast by the hippo pools, balloon safaris, and exotic Maasai bush suppers.

World renowned for the breathtaking spectacle of the greatest wildlife show on earth, the awe inspiring annual migration of the wildebeest, the Mara is Kenya's most visited protected area. Technically an extension of Tanzania's renowned Serengeti National Park, the Mara constitutes only four percent of the entire Serengeti ecosystem but its rolling grasslands, meandering rivers, and towering escarpments offer one of the world's most rewarding and evocative wildlife arenas.

Olumara camp

Olumara Camp brings about comfort and convenience in a uniquely luxurious way to all safari lovers. The camp comprises just ten tents and one family tent, thus enhancing personalized services and bringing the home away from home feeling.

Olumara is hidden in the shadow of indigenous trees. The camp recreates the atmosphere of the natural environment. Each room is furnished to a complete standard. The beds have been hand carved from specially selected wood from fallen trees. The interior of each tent also includes a hot and cold shower, flush toilet, dressing area, and a mirror. Each tent has a large, extended balcony for relaxation, reading, and game viewing or even holding private events.

With only eleven spacious, self-contained luxury tents, the camp prides itself on their exclusive service on a one-on-one basis, with their guests. Watch the experienced chefs preparing delicious meals which are served at the table by caring staff.

Enjoy a campfire while the bar attendant mixes your choice of cocktails and drinks if preferred, at the bush-bar down at the riverbank. A wine list features South African selected wines. When thinking of comfort and game, think Olumara and nature at its best. Olumara tented camp is in a class of its own!

Maasai Mara National Reserve

The eighth natural wonder of the world, the Masai Mara, lies 270 kilometers northwest of Nairobi. It consists of 200 square miles of open plains, woodlands, and riverine forest and serves as a stunning backdrop for the world’s greatest natural spectacle, the wildebeest migration.

From July to October, the promise of rain and fresh life giving grass in the north brings more than 1.3 million wildebeest together into a single massive herd. They pour across the Tanzanian border into the Masai Mara, making a spectacular entrance in a surging column of life that stretches from the horizon to horizon.

At the Mara River, they mass together on the banks before finally plunging forward through the raging waters, creating frenzy as they fight against swift currents and waiting for crocodiles. The wildebeest bring new life to the Mara, not just through their cycle of regeneration of the grasslands, but for the predators that follow the herds.

The Mara is home to a breathtaking array of life year round. The savannah plains are scattered with herds of zebra, giraffe, gazelle, and topi. The Acacia forests abound with over 450 bird species of bird life. Elephants and buffalo wallow in the wide Musiara swamp. The Mara and Talek rivers are brimming with hippos and crocodiles.

The Mara has been called the kingdom of lions and is home to the BBC's Big Cat Diaries and these regal and powerful hunters dominate these grasslands. Cheetahs are also a common sight in the Mara, as are hyenas and smaller predators such as jackals. The area is well serviced with a wide range of accommodation for all budgets and offers an assortment of activities for the whole family from walking safaris to flying by balloon over the raging.
