A private retreat characterised by thoughtful elegance and set in the heart of the Masai Mara. Ten classic safari tents overlook the bustling Talek River, surrounded by lush forest and featuring spacious decks. Each tent is a feast for the senses with hand-carved mahogany furnishings, richly textured fabrics and delightful details. Modern amenities ensure your comfort.
Mara Explorer offers front-row seats to the Great Migration between June and September and exceptional game viewing year-round. The wildlife-rich surrounds will enchant you, whichever view you choose: from the comfort of a divan in the main lounge or your secluded, claw-foot bathtub, from an exhilarating game drive or an intimate guided walk. Dining is a true delight – an abundant kitchen garden and excellent larder deliver succulent meat and fish dishes, refreshing vegetarian options and decadent desserts.

The communal areas of the lodge are beautifully furnished with an emphasis on understated elegance. The decor reflects a classic colonial mix of exotic African flavours and charming European comforts. Impressive views over the surrounding wilderness shapes the lounge and dining areas. Guests relax on sofas and divans with a book from the library or idly observe the elephant and giraffe at the waterhole.
A sparkling pool beckons in the heat of the day, while the evenings are given over to a central campfire that draws guests to its primal warmth and inspires the natural camaraderie of shared adventures.
