The Mara Safari Club is positioned on the Ox Bow of the Mara River, bordering the world renowned Masai Mara Game Reserve, at the foot of the Aitong Hills. Surrounded on three sides by the river, all the tents have their own private river frontage. Mara Safari Club has re-opened following an extensive renovation program.
The main lodge at the center of camp hosts an indoor restaurant, bar and library with Internet access to keep the relatives up to date with holiday safari to Kenya adventures. A spacious outside deck overhangs the river and leads to a heated pool, complete with bar and private massage tents. Outdoor dining will be enhanced with the creation of a boma, a structure influenced by traditional homesteads, where guests can enjoy a cultural dinner reflecting not only African cuisine but also rich musical accompaniment.
The main Mara Safari Club dining room is located in the central building; the dining room is hewn out of wood beams and glass, allowing natural light to filter in to the high-ceilinged, spacious room. Evenings are cozy in the softly lit area. The menu is a cosmopolitan combination of European, African and Asian dishes, made from the abundance of fresh Kenyan produce. Both breakfast and lunch are served buffet-style, while dinner is Table D’hôte, with a choice of main course. Seating Capacity is 90 people.
The Mara Safari Club lounge is also in the main building. Sectioned off to create ‘private’ seating areas, the decor has a definitely African flavor, with woven wall hangings, and Maasai artifacts. An extended veranda adjoins the lounge to afford superb views of the Mara River. A fire is lit each evening. This area is the venue for the Maasai Dancers, slide shows and lectures. Liqueurs, beers, soft drinks, cocktails, wines, spirits, tea and coffee are served here. Seating Capacity is 80 people,
The camp has eight double and 42 twin bedded tents, each with four poster beds and a veranda overlooking the hippo filled river. The height of luxury in the wild, each tent is superbly furnished and has its own private bathroom with hot and cold water, including a number of “outdoor showers” in select tents. The larger-sized accommodations also feature expanded decks which allow for private dining, a new service. Some tents also have sunken baths and minibars.
Guests can choose from a wide range of activities at the Mara Safari Club, including game drives in 4-wheel-drive vehicles, guided bush walks, bush meals, picnic lunches, sundowners, traditional Maasai cultural visits, Masai Mara Hot air balloon safaris capped with a champagne breakfast on the savannah or a stroll in the footprints of the hippo-trodden path escorted by a Masai Moran.
