If you prefer to stay in a luxurious villa with butlers and cooks then the Alfajiri hotel is the right place for you. With private swimming pools and a pristine beach this is a place that transpire luxury and charm.

Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club rests in the foothills of Mount Kenya. The refurbished 1950’s-era hunting lodge is one of the best hotels in Kenya. In central Kenya’s Laikipia Plateau—an alternative to Masai Mara—Segera Retreat offers hands-on wildlife experience with helping to monitor animal populations, plus expert-led game drives and eight thatched-roof villas with contemporary interiors. Mara Toto offers all-inclusive and sustainable luxury in Masai Mara Reserve with five canvas tents with Persian rugs, glass chandeliers, and en suite bathrooms.

Stay in one of the six thatched cottages (net-draped beds, ceiling fans, large baths). Each bungalow faces an open-air restaurant where the spicy fish curry pairs well with a Tusker Ale.

Book one of the 18 deluxe tents, just outside Tarangire National Park, to see the vast herds of elephants and the huge baobab trees.

With a silent partner like Paul Allen (yes, that Paul Allen) backing Olarro, it’s no wonder this hillside lodge overlooking the Masai Mara is becoming Kenya’s next high-profile hideaway.

A collection of 39 tents set on a 90,000-acre private reserve; the lodge has the largest rhino-breeding colony in East Africa. 

Room to Book: Ground-level Nos. 1-20, for their proximity to the watering hole

Doubles from $575, including meals.

Privacy is guaranteed at these 17 tents around a watering hole: the property is accessed by a hand-pulled river ferry.

Two tented camps—one vintage-luxe style (Bateleur Camp), the other more rustic—on a private concession on the western border of the Masai Mara National Reserve.

Peponi's veranda is the watering hole for "Little Europe," the jet-set crowd that comes here for generous gin and tonics and exceptional spicy prawns with coconut rice.

Set on Masai land in southern Kenya, the lodge and its foundation employ 214 tribespeople and make a daily $100-per-guest donation to support health, education and conservation programs, in particular compensation payments to Masai who’ve lost cattle to predators.
