As the day ends, it’s time to sit back, sip a cocktail and watch the sun descend behind the Rift Valley from the spectacular vantage point of the Sundowner Boma — perfect for this, with its circular shape encapsulating the dramatic views overlooking the Maasai Mara.
‘Boma’ is a Kiswahili word, meaning an area surrounded by a fence often made of thorn branches or sticks. Traditionally as the sun set, livestock was gathered into this space to protect the animals from predators. Today, it is also a space in which people gather — more often around the fire than not — where the African night is welcomed with song, dance and celebration.
