About Sand River Masai Mara

Situated on a secluded and picturesque site on the banks of the splendid Sand River, Sand River Masai Mara is built in the elegant style reminiscent of late 1920’s safaris. These were the glory days of great safaris, patronised by the rich, the beautiful and the famous. Here at Sand River Masai Mara guests can sink back in time and savour the same glamorous ambience, unspoilt scenery and spectacular game viewing as the Hollywood stars, royalty and celebrities of that classic era of African adventure. Sand River Camp sits on the migration route of the immense herds that trek between the Serengeti and Masai Mara every year following the rains to greener pastures. During this time, guests literally become part of the wildlife drama being played out, as sprawling lines of wildebeest cross the Sand River and weave their way right through the camp. Often from the privacy and comfort of your verandah you can steep yourself in this wildlife spectacle and feel a part of this natural phenomenon. Comprising of 16 tented accommodations, Sand River Masai Mara replicates the heyday of exclusive permanent tented camps of the late 1920’s. Divided into two separate but adjoining campsites of 10 and 6 tents, each area possessing its own designated dining and public areas, Sand River Masai Mara provides an atmosphere of exclusivity and classic opulence.
