This Masai Mara camp is situated on the edge of a hill and is just 4.5 kilometres (2.8 miles) from the main gate into the Masai Mara National Park. The lodge overlooks the Crocodile infested Mara River which the Wildebeest have to cross during the Great Migration. The annual cycle of Wildebeest migrating in search of fresh grazing passes through the Mara between November to January every year. The region has good year round game viewing however as it is home to lots of plains game. The Mara is also home to large prides of Lion and other predators such as Leopard and Hyena.
There are daily scheduled flights between Nairobi and Mombasa to the Mara either to the Siana Springs or Keekorok airfields. Flights from Mombasa take around 2 hours and provide the opportunity to enjoy a fantastic view of Mount Kilimanjaro, weather permitting. Flights from the country’s capital Nairobi take just 35 minutes.
The journey up from Nairobi is a scenic one through the Great Rift Valley before ascending the Mau escarpment to Narok. The tarred road ends about 5o kilometers outside of the town of Narok and it is a dirt track all the rest of the way to Mara Bushtops in the Masai Mara.
