ACTIVITIES & FACILITIES
Tipilikwani Mara Safari Camp prides itself on its high standard of cuisine and excellent service. Breakfast and lunch (three courses) are taken al fresco where possible and dinner is a four-course affair served by candle-light in the elegant dining area or outside under the stars.
Activities from camp have a focus on life in and around the Maasai Mara – its flora and fauna and the life of the local Maasai people. Premium game drives introduce guests not only to Africa’s Big Five but also to the lesser-known species. These game drives are taken in open sided 4×4 safari vehicles for the best possible game-viewing experience.
The early morning game drive may finish with an amazing breakfast in the bush, surrounded by the stunning landscape, “Out of Africa” style. In the evening the drive will take in a scenic point in order to stop for sundowners to observe the sun setting over the African plains.
A wonderful feature of Tipilikwani is its resident naturalist who is there to share a wealth of knowledge about the camp’s surrounding area. The educational guided bush walks enable guests to discover more closely some of the indigenous plants and animals and learn how the local Maasai makes use of the land in their everyday existence. Regular visits are made to a local village where guests can learn more about the Maasai culture and witness a little of Maasai life.
