Description

Mahali Mzuri

Swahili : “Beautiful Place”

Olare Orok Conservancy

Mahali Mzuri has been perfectly situated in one of the more remote parts of the Mara. This is an area that has been  combined with Olare Orok to form the larger Olare Motorogi Conservancy. There is a short drive to get to areas with good predators but the bush around the camp has good game densities.

Mahali Mzuri’s main areas boast an expansive wooden deck overlooking a deep valley. Between the dining and the lounge tents the deck has a long sofa-bench behind the fire place and overlooking the bush. The views from these areas is simply breathtaking, an afternoon relaxing and game watching is very rewarding and an ideal location for al fresco dinners.

A modest lounge and bar, both under canvas, have been tastefully decorated and high leather bar stools complement the wooden bar. There is a telescope in the corner of the lounge for star gazing and binoculars for guests who wish to game watch from the deck. WiFi is available in this area if guests should need it. There is a unique combination of luxury amenities like the WiFi coupled with a remote safari experience.

Steps from the main deck lead down to the long, narrow swimming pool, while close by is Mahali Mzuri’s spa, totally open to the view at the front and stocked with locally made products. A variety of massages and treatments are on offer here.

Tent Suites

The 12 tented suites at Mahali Mzuri are an unusual design resembling Masaai shields, each has been designed to make the most of the natural breeze. The canvas tents are raised on wooden platforms and each tent is equipped with a fridge, tea and coffee station, white bathrobes and a dark wooden writing desk. The en-suite bathrooms are stylish, with contemporary fittings, including twin ceramic washbasins, walk-in showers and claw-foot baths.

Two of these tents are slightly larger than the others, and designed for families, with a separate lounge area that can accommodate two children on pull-out sofas.

The activities at Mahali Mzuri include morning and afternoon game drives, or full-day drives on the Olare Motorogi Conservancy. It is also possible to organize game drives into the main Masaai Mara Reserve (park fees payable separately). Village visits, timed to meet or send off the cattle, are also available.
