In a couple of months the Mara River will be live with the most spectacular wildlife show in the world. The Mara river spreads across a region in Tanzania’s Serengeti and Narok county in Kenya, and lies across the migration path between the Serengeti/MasaiMara game reserves. Thousands of zebra’s and wildeebeest cross the Mara river during the annual migration between Tanzania and Kenya. The annual migration sees over a million wild animals move from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara.
A few weeks ago, I suggested a couple of places to stay in Kenya’s Masai Masai during the Great Migration (read here) in collaboration with Africa Odyssey. Here’s my second list of best options to experience the migration first hand.
Part of Safari Collection, Sala’s Camp is a tented camp consisting of seven intimate luxury tents situated in the southern, wilder corner of Kenya’s Masai Mara close to the confluence of the Sand and Keekerok Rivers. The camp is located close to Tanzania with wonderful views of the Serengeti National Park, it is one of the first camps in the Mara to witness the wildebeest migration. Sala’s doesn’t only offer up-close and best views of the migration but the camp also offers one of the best luxury accommodation in the Kenyan wilderness.
This camp gives you the authentic feel of that unique era when the word ‘safari’ became indelibly imprinted on the imagination of the adventurer, past and modern. Sitting in an extensive and exclusive concession between the Masai Mara, Serengeti and Loliondo reserves, in an area which has been untouched by any kind of tourism and development, each tent is covered in rich warm colours and texture recalling a moment of luxury safari to new heights.
Situated below the location where Out of Africa’s famous final scene was filmed, this romantic and totally private camp reflects the ambience of Kenyan safaris of the 20s and 30s. Nestled in a lush riverine forest, the tented suites epitomise classic elegance with polished wooden floors. Each tent has a private deck overlooking the vast game-filled plains of the Masai Mara, and a personal butler will ensure your every need is catered for.
#TheMigration2017 is coming up very soon and you do not want to miss the yearly World Cup of Wild Life at one of the Masai Mara’s most luxurious camps, book your trip now and Africa Odyessy can help you do just that.
