Mara Simba Lodge has been designed so as to present a safari resort, Styled to reflect the iconic colours and cultural artefacts of the Maasai people, who are the original owners of this land, it offers a peaceful retreat from the adventure and experience of the traditional safari. Situated on the banks of the Talek River, the lifeblood of this region, it extends for one kilometer, amid typical savannah and indigenous forest landscape. Wide, well-lit pathways link the rooms with the central restaurant and bar areas, where log fires are lit nightly. The resort offers a swimming pool, a wide range of evening entertainment; daily game drives through the expanse of this famous reserve, and a gift shop.
LOCATION & CLIMATE
The Masai Mara is 270 miles from Nairobi (five hours by road).
There are 84 guest rooms, widely spaced along the banks of the river, each of which stands within a cluster of six natural wood and stone chalets. Each has its own private verandah with uninterrupted views across the landscape. Each has its own en-suite luxury bathroom (hot and cold running water, flushed WC and shower).
DINING & BARS
The central dining room, which is presented in traditional Maasai style, offers a lavish selection of principally buffet-styled meals, which reflect international and local cuisine and always provide plenty of vegetarian options. Drinks can be taken in the stylish bar, or against a bush setting.
Entertainment in the form of traditional cultural displays is offered most nights.
WHAT TO SEE AND DO
The resort has its own resident naturalist. In the evenings traditional bush BBQs are staged, which can be preceded by traditional safari sundowners in the bush.
