Kensington Mara West

Lying to the north and adjacent to Tanzania’s Serengeti, forming one integrated ecosystem, Kenya’s Masai Mara is a 1,812 sqkm reserve of vast rolling plains, hills and woodland groves bisected by the Mara River itself.

Its varied topography creates a unique bio-diverse area, providing guests the opportunity to venture into the savannah covered with hundreds or even thousands of animals of many different species. These vast grasslands are rich with herds of zebra, giraffe, gazelle, and topi. With huge grazing herds, voracious attendant predators, including Africa’s largest population of lions, leopard, cheetah, elephant, buffalo, rhino and bountiful birdlife, the Mara is the staging ground for the annual wildebeest great migration. Endless processions and awesome river crossings of moving animals - making the event truly one of the natural wonders of the world.

Kensington Mara West is perched elegantly on the Siria / Oloololo escarpment forming the western boundary of the Masai Mara Reserve itself. Featuring luxury ensuite tented chalets, the panoramic views from each tent onto the Mara savannah below are breathtaking.

Each of the camp’s ‘tented chalets’ are carefully spaced out amongst fig trees on the ridgeline. Eagles, vultures and other raptors soar effortlessly at eye level, from your own private balcony, whilst the glowing sun rises with the dawn chorus punctuated by whoops of hyaenas below.

Hand cut stone bathrooms provide a level of luxury to please the most discerning guests. Owner managed, an experienced staff discreetly & carefully tends to guests’ needs. This location holds a strong connection with the local Masai, guests can hike with warriors, visit the local village and support local community projects during their stay at this unique site.

The nearest airstrip at Kichwa Tembo, receiving flights from Nairobi & all parts of Kenya, is only 15 minutes away.
