overview

Located next to the Sand River and set in a shady forest, Sala's Camp offers tented safari accommodation in the heart of the northern corridor in Kenya's Masai Mara and is in an area famous for its excellent wildlife sightings. It is among the first camps to witness the Wildebeest Migration as it passed from the Serengeti into the Mara.

A perfect location to watch the annual wildebeest Migration, you can watch the herds passing your tent as they gather to drink at a point where the Sand and Keekorok Rivers meet. Go out on 4X4 game drives, guided nature walks in the Sand River to track overnight spoor, and hot-air balloon safaris.

Children are welcome and there are two spacious Family Tents to choose from. There are also two romantic Honeymoon Tents, each with a private swimming pool. Sala's Camp has a Silver Eco Rating from EcoTourism Kenya for its commitment to sustainable management and strong relationship with the local Maasai community.

The meals at Sala's Camp are prepared in the traditional safari way: over an open fire using the freshest farm-sourced produce. Expect delicious and stylish home-cooked cuisine served by candlelight. Hot bush breakfasts will also be whipped up out on the Mara plains and private dining in your tent can be arranged on request.

Forest Luxury Tent without Pool

Sala's Camp has seven canvas en suite tents decorated in an eclectic style with African touches. Each tent features a large comfortable bed (double or twins available), a plumbed hot shower, flush toilet and comes complete with solar-powered electricity. Tents can accommodate an extra single bed for a child under the age of 11.

The tents are located on different sides of the property. On the Keekorok River side are a Honeymoon Tent with a pool, and a Family Tent, also with a pool. On the forest side, there are two Luxury Tents (one with a pool, one without), another Family Tent (without a pool) and another Honeymoon Tent (also with a pool).

A maximum of 18 guests can be accommodated at Sala's Camp at a time.

  • I have come back from my safari, and everything was superb. Sala was the best: tents hidden under trees, great service, superior and original food.
