Location is everything at Sala’s Camp. Nestled in the Maasai Mara National Park, but in a very remote southern-central corner of it on the tranquil banks of the Sand River, Sala’s boasts the most private of safari experiences within the reserve’s borders.
The camp features 11 tents including two family tents and two honeymoon tents. All feature private plunge pools and en-suite bathrooms with hot showers, running water and flushing loos.
Sala’s enjoys wonderful views across the northern Tanzanian corridor and Serengeti National Park, and it is one of the first camps in the Mara to witness the Great Migration. Your daily game drives are personalised to guests, depending on what you would most like to see, and the Mara River for the famed river crossings is only a 25-minute drive away.
The food is impossibly sophisticated for your surrounds, all in all holding true to the camp’s philosophy of combining tradition with elegance. Sala’s is also a wonderful camp for families. All children receive a welcome pack with games, paint sets and quizzes about the wildlife and the camp and kids can play in the shallow Sand River under the watchful eye of a Maasai askari.
Sala’s Camp has a silver eco-rating and is built from locally made materials with a light ecological footprint. Their guides and spotters are local Maasai who grew up on the edges of the reserves and are proudly involved in local conservation initiatives. The camp supports the Rhino Monitoring Team, providing funding and support, as well as staff and vehicles for their annual censuses. Sala’s Camp also works in close conjunction with the Mara Cheetah Project and Mara Lion Project, assisting with funding, data collection and as a base for their staff when in the south of the Masai Mara.
