Set in the legendary Masai Mara National Reserve beneath a grove of towering and shady trees, Sand River Masai Mara overlooks its namesake, the Sand River. This picturesque location has been sensitively developed with a design aesthetic that reflects the glamorous heyday of the 1920s when ‘safari’ was a dreamy Out of Africa experience but with a modern 'low impact' philosophy.

Communal lounges, dining and entertainment areas serve just 16 elegant canvas suites, which are divided into two camps of six and 10 tents, each set in glorious seclusion with private views over the river. Your private butler is on hand to ensure your stay is tailored to your preferences. Morning and afternoon game drives provide thrilling Big 5 encounters year-round and access to one of the greatest spectacles in Africa during the Wildebeest Migration, in which hundreds of thousands gnu pass through from July to November.

With an authentic safari experience, superb cuisine, a well-stocked cellar, sparkling pool, hot-air ballooning and your private viewing deck, Sand River Masai Mara offers a winning combination.

The elegantly furnished communal lounge is perfectly positioned to allow for daydreaming over a beautiful vista of the Sand River and its rolling flood plains, which are dotted with game and twittering with birdlife.

Take over a shaded chair on the deck and page lazily through a book from the well-stocked library or sip a chilled vintage from the superbly stocked wine cellar.

A dip in the swimming pool wards off the afternoon heat and a game of billiards after dinner provides an opportunity to share in the safari camaraderie with your fellow guests.


Sand River Masai Mara serves a delicious menu of east African-inspired cuisine in the elegant surrounds of its two dining rooms. Private dining is available on request, whether it is a picnic on the Mara plains, a romantic dinner on your private verandah, or even a starlit dinner in the wild. Your butler arranges dining to suit your safari dreams, including advising the chef of your preferences. Pair your menu with a thoughtful selection from the wine cellar.
