ELEWANA SAND RIVER MASAI MARA AND LITTLE SAND RIVER
Elewana Sand River Masai Mara is a 1920’s style tented camp which enjoys stunning views over the Sand River and out to the neighbouring grassy hills and plains of Tanzania. The camp is in a superb area to see the migration and enjoy the wonderful wildlife of the Masai Mara Reserve.
The camp is perched on the banks of a river from which it has taken its name - Sand River Masai Mara is located within the Masai Mara National Reserve, close to the Tanzanian border.
The camp sits on the migration route for the millions of wildebeest, zebra and Thompson's gazelle that move between Serengeti and Maasai Mara every year. Guests enjoy the privilege of exclusive views of the plains and hills dotted with thousands of animals as well as being in the thick of the excitement of frenetic and famed river crossings - all from the comfort of camp.
The camp has 16 tented rooms and the camp is divided into two separate but adjoining campsites of 10 tents (main camp) and 6 tents (Little Sand River) - each area enjoying its own dining and main tented areas. For families wishing to stay with younger children the Camp can offer a ‘Two Bedroom Family Suite’ – one double room with an additional twin-bedded room both with en suite bathrooms and sharing a central lounge area.
