Mahali Mzuri

About this hotel

  • Access to one of the natural wonders of the world – the Great Migration.
  • Year round phenomenal wildlife viewing (with added cultural attractions).
  • New innovative luxury accommodation.
  • Be the first experience Richard Branson’s new camp.

Kenya’s most awe-inspiring of landscapes is the setting for Mahali Mzuri, Sir Richard Branson’s tented camp in a pristine part of the African bush. Positioned within the Maasai Mara ecosystem, this is the place to be for a front row view of the abundant game in the area. The camp is also in the path of the world-famous annual Great Migration.

Located in the Olare Motorogi conservancy there are 13,500 hectares of bush to explore. Against the backdrop of a valley and sprawling plains as far as the eye can see, visitors can expect exciting game drives with experienced Guides, delicious meals, a cosy and relaxing atmosphere at the camp and accommodation in a uniquely designed, spacious and luxurious tent.

The central Main Tent features a lounge area and large deck, with an open fireplace, a library of books and iPads for guest use, a games console and a TV/DVD player for those who wish to keep in touch with the rest of the world. But most will be unable to tear themselves from the immediate surroundings, get a closer look with guest binoculars, spotting game from the deck at the Main Tent or enjoy a bit of stargazing with the resident telescope.

The Motorogi Conservancy has abundant wildlife year round. Kenya’s position straddling the equator means there isn’t a huge amount of variation in temperature throughout the year. You can expect average highs of about 30°C/86°F in the months from December to March with somewhat cooler temperatures from July to September during the height of the migration.

The rooms

12 luxury tents perched on a ridge over looking the Valley.

12 unique tented suites sleeping a maximum of 24 guests at any time. The tents are perched on a ridge looking over the valley with a distinctive design adapted to the local climate and terrain. There are six tents on either side of the Main Tent, each accessible by a shared walkway, the furthest of which is approximately a 5 minute walk from the Main Tent. Ten of the 12 tents are designed to sleep two adults and all can be split into twin beds.

The remaining two tents are configured so that the sitting area is enclosed with fold-out sofa beds accommodating up to two additional guests. Children aged 6 years or older are very welcome to stay at Mahali Mzuri and these rooms are perfect for a family of four.

Travel Guru tips

Game drives by night can be arranged by guests whilst at Mahali Mzuri for some added adrenaline.

Cultural day trips to learn more about the Maasai Tribe are highly recommended. Their pastoral lifestyle is very much still in evidence today.
