The Royal Mara Safari Lodge is situated directly on the annual wildebeest "Great Migration" route, near the two world famous wildebeest migration Mara River crossing points and near Leopard Gorge, all made internationally known by the BBC's Big Cat Diary television programme.
The tented lodge and camp is located on the popular Hippo Bend Lagoon of the Mara River. Given the position of the camp in the richest game section of the Masai Mara, the Mara North Conservancy (winner of best wildlife conservancy in Kenya 2011 by EcoTourism Kenya), the camp's guests are in the best location to most readily discover the Big Five mammals.
The Royal Mara's eight luxury guest accommodation suites, all with Mara River frontage, are built on elevated mahogany wood decks with private verandas. The accommodations are a blend of the classic tented safari camp with the amenities of a lodge facility - the result is an exclusive luxury tented lodge and camp like nothing else in Africa.
All accommodations are equipped with four-poster super king and double size beds, elegantly hand-carved solid wood furnishings and full en suite bathrooms.
At the Royal Mara every meal is a distinct, unforgettable experience. Meals are served in varied wildlife dining arrangements. Breakfasts may be taken near a hippo pool watching resident hippos bobbing in the river or on the open savannah among grazing herds. Barbecue lunches may be enjoyed in the dining area or on the Mara River under a tree shade. Dinners can be scheduled in dining area, in your private riverfront guest suite, or under the stars in the bush amid wildlife under the protection of Maasai warriors.
