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.
Mahali Mzuri is located in the Motorogi Conservancy, just north of the Maasai Mara National Reserve, and is right in the path of the annual migration. There is also an abundance of resident game all year round both near the camp and also a short distance away by vehicle.
At Mahali Mzuri you’re so close to the action you could join in and play with the baby wildebeests, although we don’t recommend it!
There are 12 luxury tented suites catering for a maximum of 24 guests at any one time.
Each tented suite will sit on a raised platform and include a spacious bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, sitting area and a large deck with views over the landscape – perfect for spotting the game that will almost certainly wander into view!
Things to do
We’ll keep you busy with our twice daily game drives and guided walks throughout the Motorogi and Olare Orok Conservancies which together cover 13,500 hectares (33,000 acres) where you’ll spot a diverse range of game.
We’ve got lots of activities to keep you busy or to help you relax! Unwind by our infinity pool or pamper yourself with a spa treatment. If you’re looking for more adventure take one of our guided tours to the local villages to learn more about the Maasai Tribe, or plan a visit to the Maasai Mara National Reserve.
