Masai Mara Lodges

Camps and Lodges in the Masai Mara

Our selection of Masai Mara lodges ranges from deluxe to delightful. There are classic ‘Out of Africa’ tented camps as well as thatched lodges with a swimming pool and spa. Some lodges specialise in discreet romance, others welcome families with children. There are larger budget-friendly lodges too, balanced by camps in sole-use concessions, offering exclusive, crowd-free safaris.

All Masai Mara lodges share one thing in common: prime position on the path of the migration. The famous wildebeest migration is a seasonal affair so you’ll need to check your timing if you want to see it. On the other hand, the game viewing is excellent all year round and an out-of-season Masai Mara lodge is more affordable with fewer other visitors.

Browse our recommended Masai Mara lodges below. Each has a wide range of activities from game drives and guided walks to hot-air balloon safaris and visits to the local Maasai community. If you’d like more advice on the most suitable accommodation for your needs, simply contact us.

Top Experiences

Mara provides year-round game viewing

1. Watch the Migration

It’s Nature’s greatest show: a million animals on the move. The croc-filled river crossings provide the greatest drama but you’ll need to book well ahead for the best places – ask us how.

2. Enjoy a View for Two

Many Masai Mara lodges specialise in discreet romance. Couples on honeymoon or celebrating a special occasion can look forward to sumptuous lodgings, private pools & table-for-two dining.

3. Walk with Maasai

Maasai herders share the savannah with big game: you’ll have opportunities to visit local communities & learn about village life. The traditional ‘jumping dance’ is a highlight on these sensitively-conducted tours.

4. Track the Cats

With this much wildlife on the hoof, the Masai Mara is a Year-round paradise for lions, leopards & cheetahs but your chances of seeing them in action are greater when the migrating wildebeest arrive.

5. Go Private

Avoid peak-season crowds by staying a private reserve adjoining the Masai Mara. You’ll enjoy exclusive sightings, night drives & plenty of privacy – perfect for discerning travellers & honeymooners.

6. Fly High

Start the day the Mara way: watching dawn break over the savannah – from 1 000 feet up. A hot-air balloon flight delivers the best view imaginable & there’s champagne waiting for you on touchdown.

7. Bring the Family

Several Masai Mara lodges offer child-based safari activities, childminders & private vehicles for family drives. Accommodation ranges from 4-sleeper tented suites to private family villas

8. Walk the Wild

Setting out on a walking safari in the Masai Mara ecosystem not only offers you the chance to stretch your legs, but also the opportunity to focus on some of the smaller ecosystems that are often overlooked
