Thousands of visitors come to the Mara every year to enjoy some of the most authentic safari experiences in Africa. Here are a few reasons why we love a Masai Mara safari:

Activities & Experiences


The camp is located in a secluded area of the Masai Mara National Reserve, far from other properties so guests enjoy a truly “exclusive” safari.


The camp overlooks Sand River, a picturesque combination of sand banks, dramatic rocks and riverine forest – an idyllic setting for a late breakfast!


Sand River Masai Mara is quite literally on the Migration route and guests are often fortunate to be able to watch wildebeest and zebra crossing the Sand River from the comfort of their tent verandah.

The camp has an opulent feel, and evokes a feeling of having stepped back in time to the heyday of great safaris.




Day 01- Wilson- Maasai Mara

Our driver guide will pick you up from Jomo Kenyatta and will transfer to Wilson Airport for a scheduled flight to Maasai Mara. On arrival, you will be met by our Maasai guide for transfer to your hotel. Check in and relax Afternoon game drive at the famous Maasai Mara.
Game viewing in the Maasai Mara is excellent all year round thanks to its varied landscapes, wide open spaces, temperate climate and diverse population of resident game. Its champagne-coloured savannahs are home to safari heavyweights like lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo, plus popular species like zebra, giraffe, hyena, eland and gazelle. Rhino sightings are scarce, but these endangered animals can be spotted – if you’re in luck – in the Mara Triangle.
The Mara is renowned for delivering exceptional big cat (lion, leopard and cheetah) sightings. Cheetahs are particularly well adapted to the region’s flat plains, which makes the Maasai Mara one of the best places to see these nimble predators. They often seek vantage points on fallen trees, termite mounds, and even game drive vehicles! It’s a highlight of any Maasai Mara safari to watch the world’s fastest land mammal chase down its prey.
• Rich resident wildlife, temperate climate, diverse landscapes and wide-open spaces make it a terrific year-round safari destination.

• Incredible big cat sightings – lion, leopard and cheetah.

• Large concentrations of elephant, buffalo and giraffe.

Day 02- Maasai Mara Full Day

Further on your stay you will enjoy 2 game drives in this reserve. Above all, the Maasai Mara Ecosystem holds one of the highest lion density in the whole world and its where two million Wildebeest, Zebra and Thompsons gazelles migrate annually. Certainly during our days here we may view prides of lions, hippos in the river, cheetahs racing across the plains and many varieties of antelope.
Rolling plains around the camp are teeming with wildebeest, gazelles and zebras during the migration months, and the camp is situated right in the center of their migration path. Certainly, a wildlife safari puts you right in the middle of all this action. Get a first-hand account of this epic phenomenon and live to tell the tale. In addition, safari also helps you acquaint yourself with the landscapes of this beautiful African setting. By virtue of its location and layout, the camp offers an unparalleled plethora of activities coupled with experiences from luxury tented living. Besides this, bird-watching, mini golf, sport fishing and a unique insight into the Masai culture at the adjoining Masai village are other activities of interest in this reserve.
