This family-friendly camp on the western side of the Maasai Mara overlooks the Mara River. A narrow walkway meanders beneath the forest canopy to the secluded enclave, which comprises 14 glass-fronted “tented” bungalows. Featuring a contemporary African-inspired design, polished hardwood floors and mosquito-proof net windows, each bright and airy lodging has two four-poster beds, a sitting area and a furnished veranda with river views. The spectacular newly revealed two-bedroom Geoffrey Kent Suite comes with a private chef, safari guide and vehicle. African artifacts adorn the timber-beamed main house, which contains a library, a lounge with a log fireplace and an open dining room leading out to a riverside deck. Amenities include a pool and a mini-spa. Activities encompass game-viewing, cultural visits and ballooning.
