Located high on the slopes of the Oloolaimutia Hills, the Maasai Mara Sopa Lodge was one of the first safari lodges to be built in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, a reason why its gardens and trees are so lush and mature. The lodge has 50 guest cottages divided into two wings to either side of the main public areas.
Each of these houses has two spacious guest rooms with queen and king size beds, mosquito nets, electronic safes, dressing tables, en-suite bathrooms, and sheltered verandas that all have views over the gardens and the game reserve beyond.
Set on 120 acres of Lake Naivasha’s southern shoreline in Africa’s Great Rift Valley, with acacia bushes and trees, the resort is not only home to the resident giraffe, waterbuck, and both Vervet and Colobus monkeys, but it is also a night stop for the hippos. The guest cottages, with their ingeniously designed roofs, gently sweep away from one side of the main building to form a crescent which leads towards the lake shore.
The Kibo Safari Camp lies within the Amboseli National Reserve with splendid views of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain. The camp has 73 self-contained tents for single, double, triple, and family accommodation. The beds have been custom designed and locally made, using bush logs and will ensure a good night’s sleep. All tents have flush toilets, showers, and wash basins.

Variety is what distinguishes the exceptional from the mundane and this reserve offers copious amounts of variation.

In the Maa language, Mara means "spotted" and may refer to the colorful landscapes.
