Siana Springs, a luxury tented camp, stands on the edge of the Masai Mara National Reserve – on a Group Ranch, a private area owned collectively by the local Maasai, who contribute towards its upkeep and benefit from its profits. Because the camp stands outside the National Reserve, night game drives, fly-camping and walking safaris are all permitted (as they are not in the National Reserve). The camp stands at the base of the Ngama Hills and is named after the Siana or plentiful springs of the area. Surrounded by indigenous forest, the camp offers a selection of 38 tents, an open-air dining terrace and campfire area, a freeform swimming pool and sundeck, a boutique and a children’s adventure centre. The camp’s Maasai hosts also welcome guests to tour their manyattas, cattle bomas and villages.
Word renowned for the breathtaking spectacle of ‘the greatest wildlife show on earth’, the awe inspiring annual migration of the wildebeest, the Mara is Kenya’s most visited protected area. Technically an extension of Tanzania’s renowned Serengeti National Park, the Mara constitutes only 4% of the entire Serengeti ecosystem but its rolling grasslands, meandering rivers and towering escarpments offer one of the world’s most rewarding and evocative wildlife arenas.
The Masai Mara is 270 miles from Nairobi (five hours by road). All weather air strip - less than an hour from Nairobi by plane.
The camp offers 38 tents all with ensuite bathrooms (hot and cold running water, showers, flushing WCs), verandahs, single or double beds, camp furnishings, generator electricity and in-tent drinks and snack service. Laundry services are offered and global communications can be accessed at reception.
Dining and bars
The central dining room overlooks the plains and serves lavish buffet meals. There is also an exterior dining terrace and campfire area. Both interior and exterior bar services are offered, and drinks can be delivered to the tents.
The camp welcomes children and offers a Young Rangers Club
