The Mara Safari Club & Resort in Kenya

Posted: Sep. 19th, 2006  |  By JustLuxe Team
Luxury Adventures: Located at the foot of the Aitong Hills in the Masai Mara National Park in Kenya, this Fairmont resort known as the Mara Safari Club is set to give you an adventure so unique, it will top your list of travel stories for the next few years. Its biggest draw - being at one with nature - literally. The adventure set accommodations are luxury fitted tents, aligned with viewing decks that face the Mara River, providing a superb vantage point to view the resident hippos and the local birdlife.

Fifty luxury tents, of which seven are en-suite premium, are superbly furnished with netted four-poster beds, solar heated running water, and luxury amenities. The main building consists of a lounge, bar and dining room, and is suspended over the river. A swimming pool and poolside bar are set on the banks of the river, giving you yet another close encounter with the wild. (For the truly adventurous who care to get that close.) Other wildlife excursions and game drives are arranged in 4x4 Land Cruisers around Masai Mara Game Reserve and are conducted by experienced drivers who are also local naturalists.

Al fresco lunches and softly lit dinners create the ambience in a restaurant that serves European, African and Asian cuisine combined with fresh Kenyan produce. Showcasing African flavor, woven wall hangings and Masai artifacts are displayed about the property. There are traditional Masai dances performed nightly, with many opportunities to learn about traditional culture and local wildlife. This exclusive union of a Fairmont property with an African jungle backdrop is genius and unique. It is sure to be a one-of-a-kind true bush experience.
