SALA’S CAMP

Sala’s Camp is a tented camp that combines tradition with comfort and it’s a model of understated, intimate luxury. Situated in the southern, wilder corner of Kenya’s mighty Maasai Mara game reserve close to the confluence of the Sand and Keekerok Rivers – an idyllic geographical feature that attracts teeming wildlife. Sala’s Camp location is a big draw, close to Tanzania with wonderful views of the Serengeti National Park, it is one of the first camps in the Mara to witness the legendary annual migration of wildebeest, which thunders by from June to September each year. Sala’s Camp also offers the best of the Maasai Mara’s wildlife and birdlife year round. Sala’s Camp first hosted guests in 2004, it has become renowned for combining an authentic safari experience with hospitality and fine dining. Sala’s Camp is owned and operated by The Safari Collection, and can be booked for the night or as part of a complete tailor-made safari.

TOP 5 THINGS TO DO

The Maasai Mara is one the world’s most prolific game areas and home to the ‘big 5’, with mind blowing sightings year round.  At Sala’s Camp we offer a variety of excursions, and the resident big cats are easily stopped at close quarters. We also offer first class bird-watching and star-gazing  where you can learn about the formations in clear, unpolluted skies. Sala’s Camp has a special program for children where our spotters teach young guests the secrets of the bush.
