Mahali Mzuri is one of the newest properties in the Virgin Group’s Limited Edition portfolio. This luxury camp comprising 12 tented suites is located on a hillside in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy which adjoins the Masai Mara Game Reserve. Sir Richard Branson through his Virgin Group has supported the establishment of the conservancy which helps to protect wildlife habitat in the Mara eco-system and to generate income and livelihoods for the Maasai community who own the land. Mahali Mzuri in Kiswahili literally means “beautiful place” and finds itself right in the path of the annual migration.
Mahali Mzuri has 12 modern, unique tented suites that house a maximum of 24 guests at any one time. Each tent has a spacious bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, a lounge and a balcony with spectacular views of the vast plains where you are guaranteed to see a wide variety of wildlife moving across the savannah in front of you. The tents, which have a distinctive design adapted to the local climate and terrain, are perched on a ridge along the edge of the escarpment overlooking the valley. Some of the tents are designed to accommodate families all under one roof. Mahali Mzuri offers luxurious camping with the unique style and modern comfort associated with the Virgin group.
On a chilly evening enjoy the open fireplaces and cozy up with a book from the well stocked library. Facilities include iPads for guest use, iPod docking stations and speaker systems, a TV with satellite channels, a DVD player and a games console. The camp also has a collection of books, games and kites for children. Enjoy an early morning swim in the 12 metre infinity pool, and loosen up those muscles with a spa treatment.
Morning and afternoon game drives in customised 4×4 safari vehicles are taken into the surrounding conservancy which is teeming with wildlife.
Experienced local guides will ensure adventurous and exciting game drives. You can enjoy the local markets and learn more about the Maasai culture by taking one of the guided tours to the local villages.
