Your dedicated butler will know that you prefer Earl Grey to Assam with your scones and Cornish clotted cream, and he’ll remember which trousers you like pressed flat and which ones need a central crease. So while you’re reposing in the spa or discussing the delicacies of the a la carte menu with our Michelin-starred chef in the private dining room, back in your suite your butler will have dimmed the lights, adjusted your personalized pillows, set out your nightcap and arranged the morning’s outing to the game park down to the last detail.
Mahali MzuriMasai Mara
Mahali Mzuri is located in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy in the Masai Mara in Kenya. The 12 unique tents almost resemble the shape of a spaceship, with each tent named after one of the 12 Maasai tribes located in the conservancy. The camp features an infinity pool and a ring-side view to some of the most awe-inspiring wildlife viewing experiences you're ever likely to witness.
Guests are assured of unlimited access to the exclusive Olare Orok and Motorogi Conservancies for daily game drives. Guided bush walks, visits to the local markets, complimentary laundry services and also a spa treatement room are other facilities for guests.
Mahali Mzuri opened in 2013 and is Sir Richard Branson's Kenyan Safari Camp located in the Motorogi Conservancy within the Maasai Mara ecosystem. Mahali Mzuri has been set up in collaboration with the local Maasai communities and a limited number of other tourism partners. Our key priorities are to leave as minimal a footprint as possible on the land and to promote low density tourism which creates less pressure on the environment. Our team has been working with the Maasai since the beginning of the project to ensure their full involvement. We promote and hire from the local communities and most of our staff are from surrounding areas. Mahali Mzuri is part of Virgin Limited Edition, Sir Richard Branson's portfolio of unique retreats.
