2Night/3Days : Mara Safari Club Tented Camp
The luxurious Mara Safari Club is set in the Ol-Choro Oiroua Conservation Area, bordering the Masai Mara Game Reserve, at the foot of the Aitong Hills. Surrounded on three sides by the Mara River, all tents have their own private river frontage, with four-poster beds, verandah, electricity, modern en-suite facilities with hot and cold running water.
The main building, with lounge, bar and dining room is cantilevered over the river. Game drives, guided by our experienced "driver-naturalists", are by four-wheel-drive Land Cruiser. At the club, the pool, al fresco buffet lunches and nightly activities of Masai dancing, slide shows and talks on the Mara's ecosystem and Masai culture, all add up to create a truly unique experience.
The Mara Safari Club is a four-hour drive from Nairobi, or a forty-five minute flight from Wilson Airport (Nairobi) with a ten-minute drive from Ngerende Airstrip.
