Masai Mara

Hotels in Masai Mara

50 tents on the Mara River (a prime hippo-viewing spot), with a slew of activities, including traditional African dinners served in a boma.

Riverside tents and some of the area’s best guides, set on the former hunting grounds of colonial-era governors. 

Room to Book: Tent 31 for privacy and striking savannah views.

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

Room to Book: Tent 17, at the head of the water hole, for up-close animal encounters


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.

Watch hippos from your private veranda at this luxurious camp.

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

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.

Hillside domed huts modeled after a Masai village look onto a migratory path for elephants and giraffes.
