Why not opt for something a little different for your next holiday? Skip the hotel and go for the Mara Rianta Luxury Camp in the heart of the North Conservation Maasai Mara National Reserve. Staying in tented accommodation may sound a bit unusual, but trust us, these are not just ordinary pop up tents we are talking about. There are 20 tents in total and they have all been built on top of elevated wooden platforms. Each has a stylish private viewing deck (see, we told you, this isn’t normal camping) overlooking the beautiful Mara River.
Forget sleeping bags, you will be able to rest in a kingsize four poster bed with luxury linen so there is no need to worry about that either! Each tent also has its own en-suite facilities, which again, those who have been camping before will be more than aware of is a wonderful thing to have! The best part about staying at the Mara Rianta Luxury Camp? The fact that in the morning once you wake up and have a look outside, there is a chance that you could see some of the wildlife freely roaming around.
Have you ever seen a group of hippos minding their own business first thing in the morning? You may here, and trust us, it will be a memory you will never forget. Expect some delicious Kenyan food during your stay as the dining facilities are second to none. From a buffet-style breakfast and lunch, you will be ready for your day of exploring the area, while dinner is based upon an a la carte menu. Sit by candlelight and enjoy a glass of wine as the sounds of mother nature fill the background.
