Mahali Mzuri gets ready to open in the Masai Mara

Sir Richard Branson’s Kenyan Safari Camp is open for bookings from 1 August 2013. This 12 tented luxury camp is located within Kenya’s Masai Mara ecosystem.

Mahali Mzuri is located in the Motorogi Conservancy, just north of the Masai Mara National Reserve, and is right in the path of the annual migration. There is also an abundance of resident game all year round both near the camp and also a short distance away by vehicle. The best way to access the camp is by plane from the city’s Wilson Airport which serves domestic destinations within Kenya. A number of domestic airlines are based at Wilson Airport and most provide scheduled flights to the region which take about 1 hour. From the public airstrip the journey by vehicle to the camp is roughly one hour’s drive. Special charter flights can also be arranged on request if the scheduled times don’t suit you and these flights can land at the private airstrip in the conservancy, roughly 20 minutes’ drive from camp.

They do have some opening specials so please enquire with us if you are interested.
