Royal Mara is located on the banks of the Mara River, in the richest game viewing section of Kenya’s legendary Masai Mara. It offers a blend of the classic tented safari camp with the amenities of a lodge. Nestled on a peninsula which sits directly on the banks of the Mara River, the resident hippo pools, lagoon and waterhole make game viewing inside the camp a truly unforgettable safari experience. Roaming on a game walk through the camp, guests may even see eland, warthogs, gazelles, baboons, vervet monkeys, dik dik and many other wildlife grazing within the facility.
There are only 8 riverfront tented suites, all raised on mahogany platforms with large open verandas, allowing guests to relax and enjoy the breathtaking river scenery. Each suite has been individually decorated with artistically handcrafted furniture and magnificent four-poster beds. The suites have an area of 110 square metres consisting of a sleeping area, bathroom and veranda. En-suite bathrooms with hot and cold running water are fitted with rain showers, twin basins, bidets and flushing toilets. There are also electronic safe deposit boxes, mosquito nets and mini bars stocked on request. A personal attendant is assigned to each river suite for daytime guest attendance and a Masai warrior askari (guard) for night time personal security.
Meals are served in diverse spectacular settings (i.e. near a hippo pool along the Mara River) under the stars, in the lodge or privately on your own veranda. The menu changes daily and features international cuisine, always prepared with fresh produce and fresh breads and desserts.
