Welcome to the Masai Mara of Kenya (also spelled "Maasai Mara"), recently designated as one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. The Royal Mara Safari Lodge is situated directly on the annual wildebeest "Great Migration" route, near the two world famous wildebeest migration Mara River crossing points and near Leopard Gorge, all made internationally known by the BBC's Big Cat Diary television program. Tented lodge and camp is located on the popular Hippo Bend Lagoon of the Mara River, amongst several elephant, buffalo and giraffe herds, and with close proximity to several lion prides, including the Maternity, Musiara Marsh, Aitong, and River prides. Given the position of camp in the richest game section of the Masai Mara, the Mara North Conservancy (winner of best wildlife conservancy in Kenya 2011 by EcoTourism Kenya), camp guests are in the best location to most readily discover the Big Five mammals. Thousands of wildlife documentaries and countless millions of photographs stand testament to this timeless corner of the world.
The Royal Mara's eight luxury guest accommodation suites, all with Mara River frontage, are built on elevated mahogany wood decks with private verandas. Accommodations are a blend of the classic tented safari camp with the amenities of a lodge facility - the result is an exclusive luxury tented lodge and camp like nothing else in Africa. All accommodations are equipped with four-poster super king and double size beds, elegantly hand-carved solid wood furnishings and full en suite bathrooms. A wifi signal is also broadcast to all guest suites so that guests with iphones, android smartphones, or PC/MAC laptops may enjoy complimentary internet access from the comfort of their riverfront room. The camp has hosted many couples and honeymooners with great success - location, accommodations and setting in the Masai Mara safari environment make for a beautiful, romantic retreat. Royal Mara camp guests are spoiled as they sunbathe in open veranda chaises longes, dine along the river frontage of the camp as hippos wallow in the nearby river, and experience elegant haute cuisine on their own unique African wilderness safari.
There are only 8 riverfront tented chalets raised on mahogany platforms with large open verandas where guests can relax overlooking the breathtaking river scenery.
Each chalet has been individually decorated with artistically handcrafted furniture and magnificent four-poster beds. The chalets have an area of 110 square meters consisting of a sleeping area (36 sqm), bathroom (22 sqm) and veranda (52 sqm). En suite bathrooms with hot & cold running water are fitted with rain showers, twin basins, bidets and flushing toilets. The amenities in the chalets include electronic safe deposit box, mosquito net and mini bar. A perso nal attendant is assigned to each river chal et
Meals are served in diverse spectacular settings, i.e. near a hippo pool along the Mara River, on the open savannah, under the African stars or privately on your own veranda. The menu changes daily and features international cuisine. All meals are prepared with fresh produce and all breads and desserts are prepared daily.
In 2002, Joash Were who has been instrumental in start up of many companies within Kenya and Beyond thought of it wisely that it was time to start up something tourism related. He had worked at great places. Bearing in mind that all the progressive people talk “WE” and not I, he has brought together a great team who are professional in their own rights.
