Wellness and Relaxation

Aside from discovering the Mara Triangle on safaris and picnics, take some time to explore and enjoy the many places and experiences in and around the lodge. Use up some energy or relax on your deck watching wildlife below and clouds above.


  • Enjoy the comfort of your tented suite with an afternoon siesta or a rocking chair safari – each tent has two comfy bright-red rocking chairs and a pair of binos
  • The rim-flow swimming pool has views of the Mara below and beyond, designed for both families and sun-lovers
  • Indulge in an full-body Swedish massage in-tent on your private deck — or get a fresh mani / pedi
  • If you have energy to burn, there’s the Fitness Room, with floor-to-ceiling glass stacking-doors and ellipticals, treadmills, bicycles, and weights
  • Run with some of the best long-distance runners in the world at almost 2 000m above sea level in our Run with a Kenyan experience

More Ways to Unwind

In the Guest Areas, you’ll find a lovely stand-alone library where you can borrow a book or watch a movie from the carefully-curated selection of Africana literature and film. Browse the range of Kenyan and African jewellery, fashion, artefacts and literature at the Safari Shop, or join the Maasai Mamas in the Beading Studio — the perfect place for you or the children to pass a few hours.

I woke up to a typically beautiful Mara sunrise, my tented suite overlooking…
