A Masai Mara safari is synonymous with a trending Kenya holiday and your safari tour to the legendary Sand River Camp in this famous game reserve is all about exceptional game viewing. Witness the incredible annual migration from this luxurious and very well positioned camp on the border of Tanzania’s Serengeti and Kenya’s Masai Mara game reserves.
The Sand River Camp is named after the picturesque Sand River on which it is built within the scintillating ecosystems of the Masai Mara. Everything about this luxury camp reflects those glorious safari days of the 1930s when decadence in nature was the theme – so safari décor here is about antiques, mirrors, leather, quality linens, velvet chairs and ornate light fittings.
Voyage2Africa loves the 16 canvas suites so well spread out you feel completely alone in the wilderness, nestling in lush grasslands with the river before your private deck – cleverly divided into two campsites for exceptional privacy and tranquillity. Dine in the central dining tent complete with a formal seating arrangement as wild animals pass by and sip a cocktail as the sun sets into the horizon.
This is a remote camp on the edge of Tanzania where the Great Migration passes and where you can be off the beaten track of the general Masai Mara hubbub. You are here for the wildlife for the big cats, the abundant plains game and the elephants so make the best of this rich wildlife experience and take time to soak it all in at Sand River Masai Mara. Free Wi-Fi for those who need it, first class service, an infinity swimming pool just waiting for your plunge in and a roaring fire at night to add atmosphere to an already captivating day!
If you are a safari junkie, then make sure that the Sand River Camp on the borders of the Masai Mara and the Serengeti is your go-to safari destination next time you travel to Africa. Enjoy enormous prides of lions and then the solitary leopards and family groups of cheetahs too – lying in wait in golden grasslands for the herds of zebra, giraffe, buffalo, kudu and more that peruse the area in search of water and grazing.
Your safari tour to the Elewana Sand River Masai Mara Camp is best secured for August when the annual Great Migration stampedes through this area in a dramatic few months of millions of hooves, big cats and crocs lying in wait and dust up in the air.
Stay in one of 16 luxury tented suites spread out along the river with plenty of space and solitude and everything you need. Wander down to the main dining tent for coffees and drinks and sit around the roaring fire at night sharing stories over nouvelle cuisine and meet the chef who wants your view on his food.
Setting off on safari every morning is a thrill you will never forget and the best part is the passionate and knowledgeable guide that accompanies you on your mission to learn more about this spectacular ecosystem and its wild inhabitants. See lions chasing animals, see lions killing and feasting, see hyena coming in for the spoils, and vultures thereafter to eat the pickings. Sip cold beers while you watch animals teeming around the grasslands and ask your guide any questions and he will answer.
This is the Elewana Collection, and the Sand River Masai Mara Camp is one of the best situated and best managed safari destinations between Kenya and Tanzania that you could possibly find.
