Bush Safari Hotels

Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge is a sprawling, Maasai-influenced lodge on the edge of the Amboseli National Park in south-east Kenya. Mount Kilimanjaro – Africa’s tallest peak and the tallest free-standing mountain in the world – looms large in the view when her attendant clouds permit. The 96 rooms are simple adobe structures with a cheery veneer of Maasai-ness: woven stick wall hangings, murals of East Africa scenery, and rustic furniture hand-crafted from a source of local wood that is sustained by the lodge’s plant-a-tree conservation programme.

The dining hall at Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge features yet more African artistry and décor; the lounge opens onto an outdoor sitting area and campfire from where you often see elephants and other Amboseli plains game. A swimming pool is fed by a natural spring rising on Mt. Kilimanjaro and shaded by a dense canopy of acacia trees. The salon offers beauty treatments, therapeutic massages, and hairdressing.

  • Comfortable rooms with en suite bathrooms
  • Maasai-influenced design and décor
  • Hearty meals with fresh ingredients

Amboseli Serena Safari Lodge is on the edge of Kenya’s Amboseli National Park and, on clear days, in full view of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The lodge offers game drives where, because of the flat plains and minimal scrub cover, you have a good chance of seeing Africa’s famed game including lion, elephant, zebra, wildebeest, and many species of bird. Make your stay an active one with sunset drives; bush walks; birding walks; visits to Maasai villages; participatory conservation programmes; cultural and educational presentations; Maasai dancing; and al fresco bush dinners.

This is one of Africa’s finest safari lodges, located in southern Kenya in the vicinity of the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro. It connects three national parks, namely Chyulu, Tsavo and Amboseli, and as such provides excellent game viewing among the rolling plains, lush hills and savannah landscapes. It is part of a 280,000 acre Maasai Reserve and the lodge is owned by the Maasai community and a share of the profits go straight back to the tribe. And with all the buildings made of local materials, it is hardly surprising that Campi ya Kanzi has won many eco-tourism and community development awards.

Tembo House forms the centre of camp with its thatched roof and lava rock exterior. Kick back in the lounge and read up about Africa, or enjoy a sundowner drink on the terrace while game gather at the waterhole. Wine and dine around a large wooden table by candlelight – the camp is managed by two Italians and is thus famous for its authentic Italian cuisine. Guests will stay in one of six thatched roof tented cottages, each with a private verandah providing stunning views of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Tsavo Hills or the Chyulu Hills. Facilities include a table, two safari chairs, a colonial trunk, shelves and hangers for your clothes, daily fresh flowers and a well-appointed bathroom. There are also the Hemingway and Simba suites which are more spacious with a double sink and extra room. And for the utmost in privacy there is a private house which has a swimming pool, jacuzzi and private guide.

The first lodge ever to be built in a Kenyan National Park, Kilaguni Serena Safari Lodge is superbly situated in the lee of Mount Kilimanjaro, encircled by volcanic splendor, adjacent to a teeming water hole and daily visited by vast herds of elephant, buffalo and plains game. Inspirationally positioned so that not only all the rooms but also the open-air restaurant, timbered game-viewing decks and rock-built bar enjoy uninterrupted views of the legendary snows of Kilimanjaro, the lodge also stands central to miles of lion-stalked grasslands, elephant-studded plains and wildlife-teeming bush and is ideally placed for visits to all the park’s prime attractions. Faced in volcanic stone and utilizing the natural rocky outcrops of a valley known as ‘the place of the young rhino’, from which it takes its name, the lodge has been designed to blend chameleon-like into the savannah landscape.

In addition to big game viewing in the Masai Mara Reserve, visitors are offered a rare glimpse of the day-to-day lives of the Maasai people in the adjacent Maasai village or ‘engang’. No other lodge in the Mara offers such a close cultural experience with the Maasai.

Olonana features 12 spacious permanent tents, each tastefully appointed with two comfortable queen-size beds, en suite bathrooms with showers, and large, river view verandahs. Enjoy a quiet evening drink, cozily seated on your verandah, watching the hippo frolicking just before heading out for their nightly grazing. The chefs will delight you with exquisite cuisine, which can be served al fresco perched on the Siria escarpment overlooking the Mara plains or as a picnic deep in the bush. Or you can sink into the comfortable sitting area with some books from the camp’s library lounge, and then enjoy a delicious dinner in the dining room overlooking the private section of the Mara River.

Olonana: Wildlife & Game viewing 
For guests on the Full Game Package, two game viewing drives in open-topped 4 Wheel Drives vehicles are included in the package. The jewel in Africa’s crown, Maasai Mara is host to the most spectacular array of wildlife. Her 320 square kilometers of open savannah, woodlands and tree-lined rivers creates an eco-system which supports huge numbers of bird and mammal species. The western border of the park is the spectacular Siria Escarpment, and together with the acacia dotted plains, creates scenery of stunning beauty.

Lion are found in abundance throughout the park as are elephant, giraffe, a variety of gazelle species and zebra. Cheetah and leopard are also regularly seen and, if lucky, you may also find rhino. Game viewing is never dull in the Mara, and patience is often rewarded with unique sightings: a pride of lion stalking their prey; a solitary leopard retrieving its kill from the high branches of an acacia tree; male impala sparring to attract females into their harem; or even a herd of elephant protecting their young from opportunistic predators. The annual wildebeest migration traditionally is present in the Mara from August-October and at this time nature’s dramas unfold before your very eyes at every turn.

Olonana makes use of the Kichwa Tembo airstrip, which is 15 minutes away from the camp. There are twice daily flights from Nairobi’s Wilson Airport. Wild Quest Safaris can organize flights and transfers on your behalf. Olonana is also accessible by road from Nairobi.

The camp is set on an elevation surrounded by two streams and hidden amidst wide gardens with manicured lawns and exotic flowers. Facilities include a dining area that has internal and external seating and two bars, one internal with a fireplace and the other near the poolside. There is a swimming pool and curio shop. There are three tents which can be used to seat up to 300 conference delegates.

The camp consists of 75 tents, of which three are permanent triple rooms. All rooms have 24-hour electricity and a private en suite bathroom with a shower and hot and cold running water. Game drives are done in a four-wheel drive vehicle, and bush dining and sundowners are offered. Evening entertainment includes two resident guitarists who play by the fireside and traditional Masai dancers. Balloon safaris can be arranged at an additional cost.

World-class game viewing 
The Wildebeest Migration is what the Masai Mara (and Serengeti) are famous for. But this obscures the fact that the game viewing is out of this world, at any time of the year! The plains are filled with a smattering of antelope and predators roam at will – it is one of the few places in the world where you can spot the Big Five and more before lunch. There are some things money cannot buy – and many of them are in Masai Mara!

The Sarova Mara Camp is just outside the Masai Mara Game Reserve in south-western Kenya and on the border of Tanzania’s Serengeti Game Reserve.

Live like a king. Governors’ Camp is in the Masai Mara Game Reserve on the bank of the Mara River. Comfortable walk-in safari tents have en suite bathrooms and private verandahs overlooking the river or the plains of the great reserve.

Not by accident was Governors’ Camp the sole reserve of Kenya’s colonial governors and their regal guests. The site is both a hive of wildlife activity and a showcase for Africa’s classic scenery. Created in 1972, the camp set the trend for safaris across the continent: luxury tents with en suite bathrooms, hot running water, flush toilets, enormous beds with cotton linen and a private view of the Masai Mara Game Reserve.

The living area is a tented haven of relaxation that looks out over the Mara River and the Maasai Mara plains that, once a year, are filled with over a million wildebeest and zebra on a culinary pilgrimage from the Serengeti down south. Dinners are taken in the candlelit dining tent or beside the campfire under the stars; breakfast and lunch are freshly prepared buffets on the banks of the Mara under the shade of ancient trees.

Mara Explorer is a luxurious and secluded lodge on a river in the Masai Mara Reserve. Private decks, open-air bath tubs and hand-crafted beds all look out over the Talek River as vast herds of migrating game and predators roam the plains below.

Mara Explorer, in the heart of the Maasai Mara Reserve, will have you exploring more than the jungly riverine forest and the great plains of East Africa: the luxury, privacy and spectacular setting will leave your mind at rest and free to wonder wherever it pleases. From your private deck or open-air Victorian tub overlooking the Talek River your senses are bombarded with images, sounds, smells, textures and tastes.

The lodge has just 10 tented suites, each decorated with rustic safari mementos and hand-crafted furniture; the dense riverside forest offers complete seclusion and the canvas walls offer an intimate exchange with the sounds of Africa. The living area at Mara Explorer features a spectacular deck that hovers over the river and regular visitors are giraffe, elephant, hippo, antelope and nocturnal creatures. Food, wine and service rival that of city hotels and the best is still to come: a Masai Mara safari under the keen eye of your experienced guide.

Mara Explorer is on a quiet bend on the thickly forested Talek River, which runs through the Masai Mara Game Reserve in south-west Kenya, East Africa.

Exclusive safari in Masai Mara
Every year, millions of visitors flock to the Masai Mara Game Reserve in south-east Kenya to see Africa’s wildlife, birdlife, big cats and to watch millions of wildebeest and zebra migrating northwards in search of greener pastures.

Not so with Governors’ Private Camp, which is an affordable alternative to staying in a public lodge and having to share the magic of your East African Safari with lesser mortals. And there’s no compromise on luxury, personal service and location.
