Sand River Masai Mara by Elewana is a vintage-style safari camp near Tanzania’s border with exceptional gameviewing. The wildebeest migration is an added bonus.
Named for the river it sits beside, Sand River Masai Mara by Elewana is modelled on the glamorous safari camps of the late 1920s. Every one of the 16 tented guest suites at this vintage camp is designed to take you back to another era, with features such as four-poster beds, claw-footed bathtubs and delicate crystal decanters. Suites are spread across two wings, each with its own designated dining and lounge areas thus creating a real sense of space and privacy.
Close to the Tanzania border, Sand River Masai Mara by Elewana is open year-round for guests to enjoy the exceptional gameviewing. This is big cat country, with plentiful cheetah, leopard and lion. The dramatic arrival of the wildebeest during their annual migration is merely icing on the cake.
Start a typical day with a game drive, followed by a sumptuous breakfast overlooking the plains. The camp has a gorgeous pool, a comfortable lounge area with board games and even a billiard table to keep you occupied on warm afternoons. In the late afternoon, embark on another game drive, finished off with a refreshing sundowner. The dining room is an atmospheric place to recount the day’s sightings over a delectable meal.
