Main description of Salas Camp

Sala’s Camp is a classic tented camp tucked in a bend of the Sand River in one of the Mara’s last untouched corners. With views towards the Serengeti and across the Northern Corridor, this is the first and last stop for the thousands of wildebeest and zebra that pass through. This means that Sala’s has the longest migration season in the Mara.  Its guests get front row seats to one of the greatest natural spectacles on earth and one of the Seven New Wonders of the World.

The camp itself is made up of seven tents, six twin/double tents and one big honeymoon suite/family tent. All of them are extremely comfortable with large beds, soft white linens, hanging cupboards, sink area and en-suite bathroom with flushing loo. Meaning guests can enjoy the original under canvas experience with some modern comforts, such as electricity and hot running water.

Before and after game drives guests convene in the lovely mess tent, with a beautiful lawn area, day bed for some time with a good book, bar and dining table which is littered with candles at night time. As the sun sets the camp fire is lit, drinks poured and bitings served. Whilst guest enjoy outstanding dinners amazingly produced from a bush kitchen, tents are closed up, beds turned down and hot water bottles tucked under the covers.  Every detail is considered at this truly special camp inside the famous Mara Reserve.

Room types at Sala's Camp

Honeymoon suite / Family tent

Honeymoon suite / Family tent

The seventh tent is a large double suite, which is either made up as a honeymoon suite or a two bedroom family tent. It is slightly set away from the rest of the camp so means that guests here can be a bit self-contained and can even enjoy meals on their own little lawn outside their tent.

Luxury tents

Luxury tents

Sala’s Camp offers six en-suite tents, designed to offer the height of luxury on safari under canvas. The six tents were originally a mobile safari camp, so they are light and practical, yet spacious and very comfortable. Each of the tents has a huge driftwood bed with ultra comfy mattress and linens. Whilst comfort is the first concern, Sala’s Camp retains the traditional simplicity of the pioneering days. Children under the age of 3 are considered infants, and stay free of charge.
