Drinks By The Mara River?

Our Comical Banded Mongoose!

We have recently opened a new area where our guests can enjoy drinks by the river.

The new bar area boasts fantastic views of the hippo-filled Mara River, to allow guests to continue their game viewing experience after a day on safari in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere. Guests can enjoy sundowners from the bar whilst watching and listening to the thriving hippo population when they’re at their most active. Game viewing isn’t compromised in the cooler months either as there’s a traditional boma, so that guests can keep warm.

In addition to the hippos it’s also possible to catch a glimpse of crocodiles basking on the riverbanks and a comical banded mongoose who is no stranger to the camp and its staff! When the river is low, pairs of Egyptian Geese and Goliath Herons are a welcome sight.
