Kensington Mara West is perched elegantly on the Siria/Oloololo escarpment forming the western boundary of the Masai Mara Reserve. Featuring luxury en suite tented chalets, the panoramic views from each tent onto the Mara savannah below are breathtaking. This location holds a strong connection with the local Maasai, guests can hike with warriors, visit the local village and support local community projects during their stay at this unique site.
Each of the camp’s ‘tented chalets’ are carefully spaced out amongst fig trees on the ridgeline. Eagles, vultures and other raptors soar effortlessly at eye level, from your own private balcony, whilst the glowing sun rises with the dawn chorus punctuated by whoops of hyaenas below. Hand cut stone bathrooms provide a level of luxury to please the most discerning guests.
Each expansive tent has five areas. The spacious bedroom features two queen beds and oversized windows which fill the rooms with cooling breezes. The dressing room is fitted with a ceramic sink, hand carved wooden counter and large mirror as well as a private water closet with flush toilet and large shower room.
Hot and cold running water, allow guests to freshen up and unwind. Outside, the open veranda is shaded with comfortable seating. The ideal setting to savoir a cool drink or spot of tea as you watch the 'theatre of the wild'.
