The Camp, running alongside the banks of the Sand River, has 16-tented rooms inclusive of a 2-bedroom family suite. These tented rooms are divided into two distinct accommodation areas. The first of these accommodation areas hosts 10-tented bedrooms that are serviced by a large tented dining room, and reception area. The second accommodation area, a short walking distance from the first, comprises of 6-tented bedrooms also serviced by a tented dining room.
Sand River Masai Mara can provide twin and double-bedded confgurations in each of the tented accommodations. There is also a 2-bedroom family suite that offers a double-bedded room, a twin-bedded room - each with en suite bathrooms - and a central, shared lounge .
The wildlife of the Masai Mara is world-renowned, with the so-called “Big Five”- buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhinoceros – evident throughout the year. The “Big Nine” - including cheetah, zebra, giraffe and hippo - extends this experience.
The Masai Mara also plays host to the ‘Annual Migration’ but whatever the time of year the resident wildlife will surely enthrall and entertain all who visit this wondrous reserve. Finally let us not forget the colourful inhabitants of this exceptional landscape. The Masai are a proud semi-nomadic cattle-rearing people with a fascinating culture, divided into a number of sub-tribes some of which share the Mara region. The Masai are an ever-present reminder of the history and cultural heritage of this sublime and enigmatic landscape, and will surely leave a lasting impression for all.
The Masai Mara provides exceptional game-viewing opportunities. We offer daily game-drives with our highly experienced and well-trained guides. To complement this experience we can offer private bush luncheons, bush dinners and sundowner cocktails. In addition we can invite guests to see the Mara from a different perspective by taking to the air in a hot air balloon (flying from Keekorok) . Within the Camp there is a billiard room, a library and a refreshing swimming pool (7 x 5 metres).
There will be 6 safari vehicles on site each of a similar high quality and specification as to be found at our other Elewana Collection properties. There will be a combination of enclosed and open- sided vehicles, each with seating for up to five passengers. Each passenger will have the bene t of a comfortable window seat, making the vehicles ideal for game-viewing and photography. Each vehicle will be equipped with guide books, binoculars, and a cooler box as standard.
