If you want your African safari to include great accommodation in a luxury camp and loge in the Masai Mara, the Royal Mara Safari Lodge is the place for you! This well-appointed camp is located in a very game rich area in close proximity to two crossing points in the Great Migration route, and is the ideal location to experience the Big Five and other migrating animals in their natural habitat. A dream venue for serious wildlife enthusiasts, this area has been home to the BBC’s Big Cat Diary television documentary due to the large number of big cats in the area.
The lodge itself does not skimp on luxury, clever design and great service, and all main lodge areas provide spectacular views from east to west. The main area is elevated on stilts and contains the reception, a large and comfortable guest lounge and dining area.
All of these lead out to a spectacular timber viewing deck and outdoor dining area overlooking the game dense Mara riverbanks below. A separate guest area containing a spacious lounge and another dining area is also located at the other end of the camp.
Luxury accommodation is provided in eight well-positioned guest suites built high on safely protected mahogany wooden decks on stilts on the riverbank of the Mara River. From here guests can delight in endless game spotting and the sounds of the African night.
All accommodation combines the classic feel of a tented camp with the posh facilities of a luxury hotel, and décor works well as a clever blend of rustic African artistry and plush western comforts.
Majestic four poster beds, hand-carved wooden furniture and en-suite bathrooms all add to the richness of these suites. Modern amenities such as wireless internet connections and cell-phone reception are also conveniently provided for guests to enjoy.
Regular game drives and bush hikes with a guide are the norm here, and bird enthusiasts will be thrilled by the large variety of waterfowl and raptor birds.
Hot air balloon rides provide the perfect vantage point over the migrating animals and is a miracle to behold!
