Sala’s Camp is our Masai Mara lodge and nature lover’s paradise. The sights and sounds of the wild alongside a wonderful feeling of ‘being away from it all’ permeate this Masai Mara lodge. Guests find it easy to unwind in the tranquil atmosphere of understated safari elegance.
The main communal area of Sala’s Camp sits on the riverbank in the middle of camp, commanding spectacular south facing views over the Sand River and to the Tanzanian hills beyond. Here you’ll find an impressively large dining table cut from a single piece of fallen East African Rosewood found on Mount Kenya. You’ll also find our ‘watering hole’ here, filled with a selection of teas, coffee, water, fruit juices and a fully stocked bar for you to help yourself to whenever you need a refreshment. Don’t miss our homemade sweet treats which are on offer here every day from 4:00 pm for you to refuel before heading out on your evening game drive. Various seating areas provide comfy spaces for relaxation, including a sunken deck around a firepit where you can discuss your sightings of the day with an evening drink. It’s here that you might meet our resident band of mongoose who love sunbathing on the deck or on the lawn behind it. We often use the lawn space for delicious barbeque nights where our chefs cook up a storm in our customised wildebeest shaped giant grill. A wooden veranda in front of the mess tent provides a peaceful al fresco dining space in which to enjoy our scrumptious cuisine whilst gazing out over the savannah.
Each en-suite tent in this Masai Mara Lodge is nestled amongst trees and greenery, spaced well apart along the river’s edge. There are two rooms to one side of the main mess tent which are reached via a small footbridge, whilst the other five tents are spread out in the opposite direction and reached via a winding gravel pathway. Each tent commands spectacular south-facing views which can be enjoyed from the private plunge pools and decks. The shady outside space in front of each tent is a lovely area for yoga, meditation, fitness, reading, sketching or simply relaxing in nature.
Our small gym and gift shop are located behind the main mess tent near to our manager’s office. If you’re interested in visiting our kitchen garden where all manner of ingredients are grown, simply ask one of our team and they’ll be happy to give you a tour.
