Safari Lodge

    Demand for safaris can be very high, so we cannot guarantee which lodges will feature on your itinerary. If you want to specify your accommodation requirements, you may want to consider a tailor-made safari

    Standard of accommodation is high and all bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, including tented camps. Single rooms are available at a supplementary cost

    Your accommodation is booked on a full-board basis, so all of your meals are included. You will need to pay
    extra for drinks, laundry, tips and telephone calls

    The safari lodges and camps offer a good choice of high quality cuisine, based on international tastes along side traditional East African flavours

    Many of the lodges have themed nights where local dishes are prepared for guests to sample. These might include ugali, a dish of mashed maize, or nyama choma, a ‘bush meat’ dish featuring local game such as ostrich or zebra

    Kenya is renowned for its coffee, as well as its tea, so be sure to try these whenever possible

    Morning game drives usually set out at around 7am, giving you the opportunity to grab a very quick bite before you leave (breakfast at the lodges usually begins at 6.30am). On most itineraries you should arrive back at the lodge in time in time for a ‘main’ breakfast, if required

    Water is on sale at the lodges and you should take some with you each time you go out on a game drive

    If you have any dietary requirements then please notify us beforehand so that the lodges can prepare your meals accordingly

Keekorok was one of the first safari lodges to be built in the Mara and is constantly surrounded by wildlife. During the annual migration that takes place across the plains of the Serengeti and Masai Mara, the Lodge is literally enveloped by a swarming mass of animals. Keekorok also has a thatched sundowner bar overlooking the plains, a large swimming pool and waterhole where hippo can be seen bathing.

Mara Simba occupies a large site on the banks of the Talek River. Despite its remote location in the Mara, it is an elegant and well-appointed lodge offering a high standard of accommodation and dining. Interiors are simple yet elegant, taking their influence from the local Maasai tribe. All rooms have ensuite bathrooms and private verandahs, and the Lodge has a swimming pool for guests.

Beautifully situated on the banks of the Uaso Nyiro River Samburu Lodge looks out over riverbanks where herds of elephant, buffalo and zebra come daily to drink. The hotel’s unique guest rooms are spread up and down the river in various sizes of cottages, with a mixture of decor styles. All rooms have ensuite bathrooms, and some have verandahs overlooking the river. The Lodge also has a swimming pool.

Sarova Shaba Lodge occupies a location very close to where Joy Adamson of ‘Born Free’ fame raised her adopted lioness cubs after the death of their mother. The Lodge is a uniquely African experience with its thatch-roofed bedrooms, Mazera stone and timber off cut walls. Facilities include an open-air, riverside restaurant and a swimming pool. The lodge location is famous for its crocodiles, which can be safely viewed from a platform overlooking the Ewaso Ng’iro River

Sarova Lion Hill Lodge is set on a plateau in the Rift Valley, overlooking one of the world’s greatest ornithological spectacles, Lake Nakuru. The panoramic view from the Lodge reveals a shimmering pink glow across the Lake, created by millions of flamingos, pelicans and marabou storks. The Lodge has 65 ensuite guest rooms feature verandahs that face onto Lake Nakuru, as well as a swimming pool and sauna, and laundry services.

Treetops Lodge and Outspan Country Club provide a taste of the safari experience of the early nineteenth century, and both have their place in history. Outspan was beloved by Lord Baden-Powell, who established the boy scout movement. He spent the last years of his life in a cottage at Outspan. In 1952, the young Princess Elizabeth stayed at Treetops at the start of a tour of the commonwealth.

Whilst there her father, King George VI, died and she found that she had become Queen. Treetops remains unchanged to this day, with its cabin-style rooms and viewing platforms, anchored in the tall trees of the surrounding dense rainforest. Space is restricted so over night visitors leave the bulk of their luggage at Outspan, taking only a small overnight bag to Treetops.
