Situated on a secluded and picturesque site, Sand River Masai Mara replicates the heyday of exclusive permanent tented camps of the late 1920’s.
The interior fixtures and furnishings mirror this period perfectly, reminding all who visit of those countless Hollywood movies that have paid homage to a classic era of African adventure.
Sand River Masai Mara is an ideal destination at any time of the year for those wishing to enjoy exceptional game-viewing. The National Reserve is best known for its large concentrations of big cats, such as leopard, cheetah and lion.
Sand River Masai Mara comprises of 16-tented accommodations - including 1 family tent - each divided into two separate but adjoining campsites each possessing its own designated dining and public areas, thereby creating an increased sense of exclusivity and privacy.
Within the Camp there is a billiard room, a library and a refreshing swimming pool (7 x 5 metres) with large, wooden sun deck.
The Camp has been designed to minimize its ‘footprint’ on the local environment. The Camp’s design employs solar energy for the heating of water. The Camp also has a waste management system that also ensures that there is little or no impact on the environment.
The Camp also lies on the route of the Annual Migration. The Migration passes by generally in the months of September, October and November, but this timeline can vary according to the seasonal annual rains.
However the abundance of resident game makes the Masai Mara an ideal destination for those wishing to enjoy exceptional game-viewing at any time of year.
Sand Rivers offers daily game-drives with highly experienced and well-trained guides. To complement this experience the camp can offer private bush luncheons, bush dinners and sundowner cocktails.
In addition guests can see the Mara from a different perspective by taking to the air in a hot air balloon (flying from Keekorok).
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.
