Sir Richard Branson's world-class Kenyan safari retreat, a wild and luxurious experience in the grasslands of the Maasai Mara
As you'd expect from a member of Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Limited Edition collection, Mahali Mzuri safari camp in the Maasai Mara in Kenya is one of the slickest safari camps you're likely to come across. Situated a private conservation area, approximately an hour's flight due west of Nairobi, it's right in the heart of the wildlife-rich plains, ensuring a high chance of spotting some spectacular wildlife. This is not camping as you know it; this isn't even boutique camping, but something far superior. A crop of just 12 stylish, space-age structures on the lush green hillside, the luxury tents boast wooden floors, a plush en-suite bathroom, heaps of living space and a raised patio with a view of the bush and beyond. You'll have access to the luxe facilities, which include the dining, lounge and bar area, a 40-foot infinity pool with a sunbathing deck and the Nasaro spa treatment room, offering Africology treatments. Twice daily, you'll hop into a 4 x 4 Land Cruiser with your experienced guide and explore the wild beauty of almost 33,500 acres of game land. This is a truly intimate experience with uninterrupted views of the animals, plus drinks on hand to toast the sunrise or sunset.
In the Area
Sir Richard Branson’s Mahali Mzuri safari tented camp is one of very few camps located in the Olare Motorogi Conservancies, a private conservancy area north of the Maasai Mara National Reserve, approximately 150 miles from Nairobi in Kenya. The property is located in the ideal spot to witness the migration (July through October) and offers the opportunity to see an exceptional range of wildlife, including the Big Five. Game drives will be led by experienced guides, who will take you out on custom-designed 4x4 Land Cruisers, packed with on-board binoculars, blankets, ponchos, hot water bottles, water, sunscreen and a bar of drinks for sun risers and downers. You can also go out on night drives, visit local markets or just chill out on the pool loungers to soak up the gorgeous African sunshine.
