Mara Safari Club

2008 Note: This camp is now owned by Fairmont Hotel group and has been renovated.

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 Maasai dancing, slide shows and talks on the Mara's ecosystem and Maasai culture, all add up to create a truly unique experience.
