Mahali Mzuri: the Best Accommodation for a Luxury Safari

Walter Raymond

Located on Kenya's protected Motorogi Olare Orok region, Mahali Mzuri Camp allows you to discover the wildlife of the African plains from a private terrace or get close to the beasts in luxurious adventures.

The Mahali Mzuri Camp specializes in luxury safaris in the expansive and wild African plains. Twelve luxury suites with private terraces and panoramic views stand close to the ancestral route of the great animal migrations. The exclusive complex, part of Sir Richard Branson`s Virgin Hotels Group Limited, is located in Kenya’s famous protected Motorogiy Olare Orok, a sanctuary with large populations of wildebeest, cheetahs, lions and zebras, among other native animals.Mahali Mzuri

Mahali Mzuri’s individual cabins have a spacious bedroom, bathroom and a large living room with grand vistas of the magnificent African landscape. The structure is completed with arched awnings that adapt to the local climate and environment, respecting the traditional elements of Maasai architecture. The interiors feature custom furniture made from local wood, bamboo and woven wicker lamps, and the complex includes a spectacular pool and spa treatments on demand.

The Nairobi airport is located 120 miles from Mahali Mzuri. From there, you can board special charter flights that in just an hour take you to the middle of the African savannah. Once you’ve filled your lungs with warm African air, it’s time to board the traditional land rovers and cross the plains leaving behind a cloud of dust. Quite an adventure! Also, for those who like exclusivity, a helicopter is available to take guests directly to their cabins.
