Mahali Mzuri occupies an area in the Southwest of Kenya, a protected land of awe-inspiring vistas, sprawling plains, and where African wildlife roams freely in their natural habitat. Here, two million animals traverse the plains in a coordinated journey each year, which is the Great Migration.
Twelve tents comprise the resort of Mahali Mzuri. Each dwelling is positioned to maximize privacy and offer sufficient space away from the other tents. There are six tents on either side of the Main Tent, each accessible by a walkway, the furthest of which is approximately a five- minute walk from the Main Tent. Ten of the twelve tents are designed to sleep two adults and all can be split into twin beds. Two tents are configured to accommodate two additional guests. The resort can cater for a maximum of 24 guests at Mahali Mzuri at any one time.
You’ve most likely heard of glamping but this isn’t camping as you know it! Our tented suites are super stylish and unlike any tents you’ve ever experienced. The accommodations are sited along the ridge of the escarpment, which highlighted the view of the basin. Some of our dwellings are designed for families and include much convenience in the bush.
At Mahali Mzuri, our chefs have developed numerous Pan-African dishes that are influenced by a variety of cultures, flavors, and spices. Whether you are dining under the African sky in the open bush, on a deck, or in the dining tent, our menus and meals promise to be exciting, social, and inspirational.
We use locally-sourced produce, flavors, and spices.
Game drives at Mahali Mzuri allow travelers to see an abundant animal life, as well.
Wild animals roaming the Kenyan plains include wildebeests, elephants, zebras, lions, leopards, cheetahs, giraffes, impalas, and gazelles, but that’s just for starters.
If you’re looking for more action (and cultural experience), while staying at Mahali Mzuri, you can plan a visit to a native tribe community and learn about the Maasai people whose traditions and customs are still very much in practice.
The other three conservancies are Olare Orok, Mara North and Naboisho, and together all are helping to increase the protected area of the ecosystem by nearly 50%. Since 2006 a unique land management structure has been developed in the conservancies with a dual aim of extending the protection afforded to wildlife in the National Reserve to an even greater area whilst directly supporting the needs of some 1,550 Maasai families.
Today we are seeing both the Maasai community and safari guests enjoying the true benefits of conservation of this land in a relationship that will see the ecosystem protected for many years to come.
The land surrounding the northern boundary of the Maasai Mara reserve was once considered Koiyaki Group Ranch territory and was managed by a community committee. It has now been sub divided into individual free hold title. These small units were not considered economically viable and conflicting land use was a major concern among interests such as tourism, agriculture, development, conservation and charcoal production. Forming conservancies made up of contiguous parcels of land has become the most viable way of preventing the fragmentation of such an important environmental resource. The basic concept of these conservancies is to guarantee a fair income to every landowning member regardless of tourism numbers.
Every community member is receiving a stable income and is able to make better planning decisions for the future of their homes and families.
Tourism operators can promote high value, low density tourism which creates less pressure on the environment.
Both the community and commercial operators can appreciate the real value of effective conservation on conservancy land.
This private conservancy is shared between five key Safari Camps and we are the only Safari Operators permitted to conduct game drives in this area. Together we have a code of conduct and conservancy agreement to protect the land from ‘over tourism and development’ which only adds to our guest experience. In total the number of guests allowed to stay in this area is 94. There are no fences between the Mara and Olare Motorogi conservancies, so there is fantastic game viewing to be enjoyed.
