MARA SAFARI CLUB:
Mara Safari Club, Masai Mara, Kenya:
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.

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. Some tents also have sunken baths and minibars.

The main building houses the lounge, bar and restaurant where a cosmopolitan combination of food is served, including traditional Kenyan dishes. Buffet lunches and barbeques are sometimes held by the poolside. There are game drives, bird walks, balloon, walking and fishing safaris, Masai dancing and village visits. Bush dinners and sundowner cocktails are also offered at the lodge.

The Mara Safari Club is a four-hour drive from Nairobi, or a forty-five minute flight from Wilson Airport (Nairobi) with a ten-minute drive from Ngerende Airstrip.

Mara Safari Club Facilities:
Mara Safari Club has a total of 50 tents, of which 42 are twin-bedded and 8 double-bedded. Of the 45 standard tents, 5 have sunken baths in the bathrooms and king-size beds. Being located on the oxbow of the Mara River, all tents at the club have river frontage. This allows very peaceful game watching from one's private verandah, as the riverine flora and fauna is full of life and excitement. It is not uncommon to see hippos and crocodiles swimming or walking in the river, monkeys swinging through the trees or any of the larger mammals stopping at the water's edge for a drink.

Five of the 50 tents are Premium Tents. The Premium Mara Safari Club Tents comprises of 3 doubles and 2 twins, and 2 have a king-size bed. 3 of the Premium Tents have sunken baths in the bathrooms. There is a platform between the Premium Tents and the Standard Tents, allowing for superb game-viewing and private dining. All tents, each erected on a concrete plinth are luxurious ensuite "rooms", spread out along the bend of the Mara River. The tents have been superbly furnished to the highest possible standards with netted four-poster beds and permanent bathrooms. Each zip up tent has a verandah overlooking the river.
 

Each Mara Safari Club tent has complimentary water with glasses, insecticide and air-freshener, electric lamps, dressing table and hand-woven rugs and poster-bed drapes, shower stall, flush toilets in bathroom, washbasin. Each bathroom has Lonrho shampoo, hand and body lotion, shower and bath gel, and freshly laundered towels, solar-heated-hot, and cold running water. The tent windows have mosquito gauze and flaps. Each tent also has a flashlight and an umbrella.

Mara Safari Club Dining and Relaxation:
The dining room is located in the main 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.
