Mahali Mzuri | Masai Mara National Reserve | Kenya

Masai Mara National Reserve

Property Description

Mahali Mzuri means ‘beautiful place’ in Swahili, and we hope you agree! Mahali Mzuri is Sir Richard Branson’s 12-tented luxury safari camp located in the private Olare Motorogi Conservancy in the wider Maasai Mara ecosystem in Kenya. Due to Mahali Mzuri’s excellent location on the Kenyan plains, you’ll have a front-row seat, not just to the annual great migration, but also to the abundant game you can see all year round. During our twice-daily game drives, you will have the opportunity to see lions, wildebeest, elephants, giraffes, and cheetahs, but that’s just for starters!

At Mahali Mzuri, our super stylish tented suites make for the perfect retreat during your stay. We can cater for up to 24 guests in the camp at any one time, so you are guaranteed peace and quiet, as well as excellent customer service at all times.

Mahali Mzuri was voted as the ‘Favourite Safari Camp’ at the Condé Nast Traveller Middle East Reader’s Choice Awards in 2017 and came 2nd in 2018!

Are you ready for the start of your Kenyan adventure at Mahali Mzuri? Game viewing is naturally the number 1 activity guests at Mahali Mzuri enjoy the most. Who wouldn’t want to witness the thrill of a hunt or see a baby warthog rolling in the sand? However, if you have time, make sure to head out on a local Maasai community tour or indulge in a rejuvenating spa treatment. 

In the safari camp itself, each couple will share one of our 12 luxury tents, each complete with an ensuite bathroom, private deck, and breath-taking views. In the centre of the 12 tents in the Main Tent. Here you will find our relaxing lounge with an open fireplace and a large decked area where breakfast and lunch will be served. Just a short distance from the Main tent is our 12-meter infinity swimming pool, big enough for a leisurely swim or a refreshing dip.


WHAT TO PACK  – The key in the bush is layering, as even with the sun shining you may find that it is a little chilly on game drives. In the warmer months go with a windbreaker, hat, and sunglasses, then a light padded jacket for the evenings. For the cooler and wetter months take a jumper/ sweater, scarf, and a fleece or warm jacket. On game drives, it’s best to wear pale or neutral colors and a pair of closed shoes.  Around the camp, you can wear whatever you like, and while formal wear isn’t always practical, of course, it’s up to you. Make sure you remember to pack your swimsuit for around the pool.


GAME DRIVES  – The abundant animal life in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy is quite simply jaw-dropping, and you won’t need to go far to see some unforgettable sights. All the drama that only nature can provide is on your doorstep and you’ll be in the hands of our experienced Field Guides with a front-row seat on your safari tour.  A number of lion pride territories meet in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy which can make for some interesting encounters as the different groups battle for dominance.  The area is also home to roughly 150,000 Loita wildebeest that don’t make the annual migration south and seem content to ‘loiter’ all year round! Of course one of the biggest draws to the area is the annual ‘Great Migration’, which sees up to one million wildebeest plus hundreds of thousands of zebra, gazelles, and other games undertake a journey of roughly 1,600km through Tanzania and Kenya.



Our chefs have developed numerous pan-African dishes influenced by a variety of cultures, flavors, and spices. Whether dining under the African sky in the open bush, on a deck, or in the dining tent, our menus and meals promise to be exciting, social, and inspirational. 

From bush BBQs to champagne picnics to sundowners our team will treat you to a wide selection of African and international menus. All our bread and pastries are baked daily and we also cater for private meals and special occasions.  We use locally-sourced produce, flavors, and spices to deliver something truly memorable. All meals and drinks including alcohol and our finest champagne are included in your stay and guests are welcome to help themselves to whatever they want at any time.  If you have any special dietary requirements just let us know before you arrive and we’ll make sure we can cater to these.



Transfers – You will most likely be arriving by air, so please do take the time to check with your airline for their precautionary measures too. You can have every confidence that once we collect you from the airstrip, the vehicle you take back to the camp will have been rigorously cleaned and we will have hand sanitizer ready for you as soon as you land – and a refreshing glass of fizz too of course.

Checking In & Out  – We want to make your stay as simple and relaxed as possible and that’s why we have created our own little welcome pack that you can expect with all the usual little luxuries that we will never compromise on. Each of our guests will receive a face mask (Virgin Limited Edition in the style of course!), sanitizer, and antibacterial wipes for your convenience, to use as you wish. We will then talk you through all of the different options available during your stay to ensure you feel as at home as possible, whilst still getting the outstanding service we’re known for.  As hard as goodbyes are, when it comes to it, we will make it as seamless and easy as possible for you.

Flexibility & Simplicity  – We understand that everybody’s level of concern is entirely personal and while our promise is that your safety is our number one priority, we want to ensure that we are working to your comfort level.  So, whether that’s choosing not to have housekeeping during your stay, or providing you with the same member of staff or guide every day, you can have complete confidence that we remain fully flexible, adapting our processes around your preferences and ensuring that you have as memorable a stay with us as ever.

Keeping It Clean  – We give you our absolute word that we will be carrying out the most meticulous cleaning measures throughout the camp and in our game drive vehicles. These measures will also as a minimum meet any new local regulations now in place throughout Kenya. You may notice a few temporary alterations to some of our tents as we do our very best to keep our guests safe. Our tents will still have the same beauty, comfort, and authenticity that they have always done, but as we strive to increase safety measures we ask you to kindly bear with us.

Clean Hands  – For the comfort of our guests, we have placed hand sanitizer stations throughout the public areas at Mahali Mzuri and in our game drive vehicles too.  Hand clothes have also been replaced with disposable clothes throughout for your convenience and we encourage all of our guests to make use of these and the sanitizer throughout their stay.

Masks  – For the safety of both our staff and guests, our staff will be wearing face masks at all times. Whilst these may well hide our smiles, we will most certainly still have smiling eyes!  We kindly ask our guests to respect the mandatory government guidelines which require guests to wear a face mask in all communal areas. Unless of course, you are enjoying our incredible dining experiences.

Temperature  – Screening It is our number one priority to ensure the ongoing safety and wellbeing of all of our guests and staff, and with that in mind, we hope you’ll understand that we’ll be carrying out temperature checks and a medical questionnaire for all guests on arrival.  In addition, our staff will undergo daily temperature checks before they start work every day (including those staff that resides on the property); so you can have complete trust that you are always in safe hands.

Medical Support  – Should any of our guests have any health concerns, we have a medically trained nurse and fully equipped clinic at our camp, available to guests 24/7.

Spa  – We all love to be pampered every now and then and whilst there is likely to be a limited treatment offering compared to normal, we will be making use of the incredible outdoor locations Mahali Mzuri is privileged to enjoy.  By their very nature, beauty treatments have very strict hygiene protocols, so you can have confidence that our trusted therapists will be operating in the safest way possible.
