Stay in a traditional tented camp, combining the elegance of safari days gone by with subtle modern touches

Enjoy front-row seats to the Great Wildebeest Migration from June to September

Spend three nights exploring the southern, wilder corner of Kenya’s magnificent Masai Mara at Sala’s Camp, known to have one of the best locations in the reserve with views of Serengeti National Park.

Fly to Sala’s Camp in the southern sector of the Masai Mara Game Reserve to experience one of the best wildlife viewing spots in the reserve. The camp is positioned in close proximity to the Serengeti National Park, meaning Sala’s is one of the first camps in the Mara to witness the mighty annual migration of wildebeest. In fact, Sala’s Camp can offer its guests exceptional wildlife and birdlife year round, as it sits close to the confluence of the Sand and Keekorok Rivers – a major attraction for wildlife. After a day of exhilarating game viewing, guests can return to their stylish tented suites to relax by their private plunge pool, before enjoying a magical bush dinner under the stars.

Experience the original essence of safari with a stay at this authentic and luxurious tented camp, home to stunning wildlife and wilderness experiences.

Transport yourself back to the 1920’s with a stay at Cottar’s, a luxurious tented camp with endless charm and authenticity. The camp has a bygone era feel – reminiscent of the golden era – to allow its guests to experience the original essence of safari. The guests at Cottar’s choose this camp not only for its unique style, but also for its history. The camp is run by the oldest established and continuing safari family in Africa spanning over five generations, so there are decades of experience between them. The camp has the highest number of Gold Safari Guides within one camp in Kenya, meaning a safari here is always a memorable one. Cottar’s is also heavily involved with the local community and conservation efforts, adding even more reason to stay at this award-winning camp.
