Luxury tented accomodation in the heart of the action!
Your tent at Mahali Mzuri is your window onto some of the world’s most spectacular scenery! Each of the 12 luxurious tents is designed to be your home away from home throughout your stay, with an en suite bathroom, inviting private deck and views you won’t want to miss out on.
Not only are the tents the epitome of luxury, fitted out with all the home comforts, but the whole safari camp is located in the world-famous Maasai Mara ecosystem and right in the path of the annual great migration. Can you imagine waking up and looking outside your bedroom window to be greeted by such an amazing sight!
Whatever you do, be sure to grab your binoculars! Even when you’re not on game drive there are endless opportunities to see the wildlife that populate the area around the camp from the comfort of your tent. The abundant animal life in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy is quite simply jaw-dropping, and you won’t need to go far to see some unforgettable sights. All the drama that only nature can provide is on your doorstep and you’ll be in the hands of the experienced Field Guides with a front row seat and involved in all the low down!
The Field Guides will take you on twice daily drives through the Olare Motorogi Conservancy in open vehicles and on an average drive you are likely to spot wildebeest, elephants, zebra, lions, leopards, and that’s just for starters. The game experience continues back at the camp as it is set just above one of the area’s few year-round watering holes, ensuring great game viewing from the dining pavilion and straight from your luxury tent!
Maasai Community experience
While you’re staying at Mahali Mzuri you’re welcome to visit one of the Maasai villages in the local area to get a flavour for daily life in the Mara. The village is only 10 minutes’ drive from Mahali Mzuri and the best times to go are first thing in the morning when you can help milk the cattle or in the evening when the cattle, goats and sheep are being herded back to their enclosures for the night. Your guides at Mahali Mzuri will take you on a tour and introduce you to their families while explaining some of the cultures and traditions.
During your visit you can expect to:
- Learn how the houses are built (by the women of the village) and how responsibilities are divided amongst families
- Have a guided tour of a traditional house and the all-important holding area for the cattle
- Pet any new-born lamb and goats – a favourite for any younger guests
- Help milk the cattle if you’re visiting at dawn. At dusk you can watch the men herd the cattle, goats and sheep into the safety of the enclosure overnight
- Be invited for tea in one of the houses. In Maasai culture it is seen as a blessing to have many people in your house so guests are joined by others including the matriarch of the community and some of the children
- Have a basic lesson in Maa (the Maasai language)
The top chefs at the camp have developed numerous pan-African dishes influenced by a variety of cultures, flavours and spices. Whether dining under the African sky in the open bush, on a deck under the starlit sky or in the dining tent surrounded by panoramic views, the menus and meals promise to be exquisite!
