A luxury tented safari in the Masai Mara National Reserve may seem familiar to you if you enjoyed the movie Out of Africa. Kenya is Africa's premier safari destination and the Mara is the jewel in the crown. The Masai Mara has abundant wildlife in a relatively small area. You can literally see the "big five" in one day along with plenty of giraffe, elephant, hippo, baboons, warthogs and more.

The luxury tented camps afford you the romance of being out in the African bush with wildlife all around you while enjoying gourmet food, a soft bed and a hot shower.

The Most Romantic Luxury Tented Safaris include:

  • Governors Camps. There are 4 campsites owned and run by the Governors Camp group. All are luxury tented camps in beautiful settings inside the Masai Mara Reserve. The most luxurious and romantic camp is The Governors' Ilmoran Camp. This camp has just 10 tents, each with their own verandas, flushing toilets, Victorian baths and comfortable beds. The food is of course excellent as well.

  • Bateleur Camp has 9 luxury tents each with their own private verandas, ceiling fans, en-suite bathrooms and butler.

  • Mara Bushtops is a luxury tented camp in the Mara Siana Wildlife Conservancy, it borders Masai Mara National Park. Visitors fly in to the camp, which is set up high on a hill, overlooking a scenic valley. A recent guest recalls "You can swim in the pool and watch giraffe, baboons, gazelle and other wildlife at the same time, a few hundred meters in the distance". Maasai guides accompany all game drives, the food as well as wine choice is excellent and the tents are extremely comfortable.
