Set on the shores of Lake Naivasha is Lake Naivasha Country Club. The place oozes history and is one of the oldest resorts in Kenya.
Built in 1937, it served as a staging post on the then very long journey by the flying boat service from Durban to London. The plane landed on the lake, and while it was being refuelled, passengers could rest at the newly built Country Club. The site has since been modernised and extended, and today consists of 50 rooms, all of which are located around the lovely big garden filled with beautiful trees and colourful flowers. The colonial style and history are still very much in evidence.
There are various room categories, but all rooms are spacious and stylishly appointed with an en suite bathroom, TV, minibar, free Wi-Fi, safe and private veranda.
There is a restaurant, bar, day spa and pool.
Close to Naivasha Lake is where you will find this good tourist class lodge.
Its 70 spacious rooms are located in blocks of 10 rooms. There are 6 rooms on the ground floor and 4 above. All rooms are furnished to accommodate a small seating area, and all have their own terrace or balcony. All rooms have tea/coffee making facilities, a TV, safe and Wi-Fi. It is possible to book connecting rooms if you are travelling as a family.
Surrounding the room blocks is a large, well-kept garden, reminiscent of a classic European park. It is not uncommon to encounter zebras, giraffes and impala if you go for a stroll in the grounds. If you are really lucky, you might even see the wild animals from your own balcony or from the breakfast restaurant. The grounds also feature a delightful pool with plenty of space for sun loungers.
There is a restaurant at the lodge, a small shop and the option to enjoy a massage.
This lodge is perfectly situated on a large pasture consisting of Acacia bush and beautiful trees . The lush surroundings attract many of the savannah animals and make it possible here to see giraffe, waterbuck and vervet or colobus monkey.
There are a total of 84 rooms and 21 cottages with colourful stone walls both inside and outside. All rooms have panoramic windows and open porches. Additionally, the lodge provides facilities such as a sauna and beautiful outdoor swimming pool.
Situated on the banks of the Talek River is the 4-star Mara Simba Lodge. The lodge was built with respect for the surrounding nature, so the fact that it has 84 rooms comes as something of a surprise. The pleasant garden is well kept and full of butterflies and exotic birds, but just outside the lodge area, the wild nature prevails. Built mainly from natural materials in neutral colours, the lodge oozes safari ambience from the moment you set set foot inside. The communal areas afford a lovely view of the river, so you can look out for elephants coming down to the river to drink as you eat your breakfast. The lodge has a pool, restaurant, bar and even a small souvenir shop.
The rooms are located in small clusters of six rooms to a “house”, all of which are just two storeys high. All of the “houses” are linked to each other and the main building by a series of raised walkways, all of which are well lit in the evening. The rooms are spacious with an en suite bathroom and a private veranda.
If you want an even more authentic African safari experience, you can choose to upgrade to a tent at Mara Simba Lodge. The tent has its own terrace and own bathroom, but canvas walls so you can hear and smell the nature right outside. It’s a true African safari experience!
|From hut to tent, per night||Per person: £64|
Along the Talek River, in one of Kenya’s most famous nature areas, Maasai Mara, is Mara Leisure Camp, a comfortable tent camp.
You will be up close to nature here, and you can both hear and smell wild nature waiting just outside the tent canvas!
As a unique touch for a tent camp, there is a lovely pool here for you to cool off in after the day’s safari. There is also a pleasant lounge area here which offers free Wi-Fi, and the camp has its own restaurant as well.
The camp consists of 22 tents of different sizes – each with their own bath and toilet. The tents are on raised platforms, which provides good ventilation between the tents, and all feature wood flooring. Some of the tents have fixed doors at their entrances, but most feature a typical canvas door with a zipper – the classic safari style! All the tents have space for tables and chairs – both indoors and outdoors.
Masai Mara Sopa Lodge consists of 100 rooms.
The lodge is very popular in the Masai Mara area. Set in the the hilly landscape of Oloolaimutia Hills the lodge offers sweeping views of east Masai Mara. There are two outdoor pools, including a children’s pool. All rooms have a private bathroom and balcony.
During your stay in Masai Mara it is possible to upgrade from Mara Simba lodge to Sarova Mara Game Camp. This is a great option for people who wish to get closer to the nature.

Over 1.2 million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra are tracked by Africa’s predatory wildlife, whilst travelling for thousands of miles each year to escape drought.

Imagine lying on a sun lounger on your own large wooden deck outside your tent in Masai Mara. You can hear the hippos fighting down in the Mara River – the river that is at the centre of the great migration every year and which this camp is located right next to.
You’ve been out on a game drive in Masai Mara all day, but now you’re just sitting relaxing and enjoying the sounds of the bush. Your tent has the look of a classic safari tent, but in a luxurious way. There are canvas walls but soft beds with a mosquito net around them, and a private bathroom with hot water. You might have a little nap in the chair. At night, you can clearly hear all the animal sounds through the canvas wall, so you were awake a couple of times during the night. But who doesn’t want to be woken by the sound of the lions roaring in the distance?
Perhaps you prefer a dip in the pool to get refreshed before the sundowner at the bar followed by dinner. No matter what your preference, you’re in the midst of everything at Ashnil Mara – surrounded by nature.
The camp has a total of 50 luxury tents.
Price is applicable for four people. Please contact us for prices relating to two people.

Olengoti Safari Camp actually consists of two camps: a classic African tent camp as well as a camp with luxury cabins.
Environmental awareness is very much in focus at both. All energy comes from solar cells, and the wood used is eco-certified. The local Masais have themselves taken part in the building of the camp, and primarily local materials have been used.
Olengoti Eco Safari Camp is located right on the banks of the Talek River and consists of 11 luxury tents and 6 luxury cabins.
The tents are large and well-appointed. The beds have proper duvets and fabulous cotton sheets, and the Masai culture is reflected in the decoration with colourful bedspreads and handmade furniture. All tent walls are canvas – even in the bathrooms. But there is a proper toilet, running water and shower, so even if you’re staying in a tent and can hear and smell the bush outside, you won’t have to compromise on comfort. In front of each tent, you have your own little veranda with safari chairs and tables, and we guess you’ll be spending many an hour here just looking at the nature around you.
There is a communal tent in the camp with fabulous leather furniture where you can relax after dinner, which is either served in the open air or in the restaurant tent.
The cabins are built of eco-certified wood, supplied with solar energy, and built to blend in with the surrounding nature. The cabins are spacious with a bedroom, living room and large outdoor veranda from which you can enjoy the view of the nature. The cabins are big enough for a family of two adults and two children.

Keekorok Lodge is one of the classics in Masai Mara. Built in 1962, it was the first lodge in the Masai Mara Game Reserve. It has, of course, been renovated since then, so the entire lodge is still beautiful – and fortunately none of its original charm has been lost.
The lodge is primarily built of natural materials such as wood and stone, so it blends right into the surrounding wilderness. At Keekorok Lodge, you are bang in the middle of the route of the Great Migration.
All rooms are nicely decorated with local art, and all have a balcony. Naturally, all rooms have an en suite bathroom and toilet.
The lodge’s biggest draw has to be the long walkway leading down to a small bar which affords the most amazing view of all the hippos that inhabit the small local lake. It’s the perfect place to enjoy your daily sundowner!
It goes without saying that the lodge has a pool and a pleasant sun terrace. Massage is an option, and there is free Wi-Fi throughout the lodge.

Naturally, all tents have their own bathroom with running (hot and cold) water. All tents have their own terrace, where there is a small plunge pool to cool down in on hot days.
The big drawer is the camp’s “lounge”. Sit yourself down in a soft chair, order a cold beer and enjoy the view of the river in front of you. You won’t want to leave! Fortunately, you don’t have far to go to the restaurant – it is located in a neighbouring tent next to the lounge. The food is amazing, and if you’re lucky, lunch will be interrupted by an elephant entering the camp.

Luxury and indulgence in the midst of the wilderness. That’s Severin Safari Camp.
The morning started with a game drive. Now you’re sitting on your private veranda outside your tent, letting your breakfast go down. You’re thinking of the very full lion you saw this morning. It was almost hyperventilating after gorging on buffalo.
In front of you is the bush. Tsavo’s red soil gives everything a reddish hue. Zebras and elephants turn red in the dust.
You’re at the fabulous luxury tent camp, Severin Safari Camp, which has 27 classic African safari tents with their own bathroom (with hot water, of course), electricity, soft beds with a net over them and their own private terraces.
A couple of Masai warriors are walking around the camp. It’s not fenced, so the Masai stand guard around the clock and ensure that no wild animals enter the camp. In the evening, they accompany you to and from dinner. It gives you the feeling that you are in the midst of the wilderness – on the animals’ terms and not the other way around.
On a clear day, you can see Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro, from the pool.
Meals are served at the “Out of Africa” restaurant, and you can enjoy the last drink of the evening around the camp fire, overlooking the lit-up waterhole where the animals come to drink.
