Masai Mara Luxury safari – Many travellers and mostly those who look for privacy, ask if they can get luxurious lodging in Masai Mara but the answer is, there is no shortage of luxury lodges in Masai Mara, so you are spoiled for choice when it comes to picking the best place to stay. Whether it is an intimate tented camp or stylish lodge. Up market camps and lodges offer fully inclusive packages that includes all your meals and activities like twice-daily game guided game drives and if you are on concessions, then night drives and bush walks. Extra activities such as hot air balloon rides can also be arranged through your lodge or camp. You can expect fabulous locations, stylish décor, and lots of attractions to detail, perfect service and amenities such as swimming pools and spa, massage parlor.
As I have stated above, if you are a kind of traveller who doesn’t want crowds, you shouldn’t stay in one of the large hotels in the east of the park but rather in one of the camps in the Mara triangle in the west, for more exclusivity, contact Great Adventure Safaris to book your stay at one of the luxury camps or lodges situated in one of the conservancies that boarder the park. These private conservancies have limit of number of beds per hundreds of acres as well as a limit at sightings, so you are guaranteed to avoid the cars that would pile up around a sighting in the Masai Mara itself.
For those willing to witness the ultimate Great wildebeest migration experience, you need to inquire in advance and book to stay at a mobile luxury tented camp for your Masai Mara luxury safari, which move positions in the Great Mara eco-system along with the herds of wildebeest between July and October. These minimal footprint camps get you closer to the action that anything else and you will experience the magic of camping in the bush – without actually camping. Of Couse there is comfort as the specious tents come with en-suite bathroom consisting of flush toilets and hot bucket showers as well as communal dining and lounge, tents decked out in rugs and antique furniture. Mobile camps usually have less than 10 tents, so you are guaranteed an intimate experience that makes the most of an immersion in the wilderness.
