Sir Richard Branson’s Kenyan safari camp, Mahali Mzuri, opened in 2013 and offers an unforgettable safari experience in the Maasai Mara ecosystem. Each of the 12 luxury tented suites sits on a raised platform and includes a spacious bedroom with an en suite bathroom, sitting area and large deck overlooking the pristine landscape. The camp is located in the path of the great migration — on a typical game drive you’ll spot wildebeests, elephants, zebras, lions, buffalo, topi, hippopotamuses and many more! The impressive dining options include a wide selection of African and international dishes served in the main dining tent or out in the bush.
Located within the Olare Motorogi Conservancy to the north of Kenya's famous Maasai Mara National Reserve at an elevation of 1,700m above sea level. The camp is perched on the side of a lush valley with views over the rolling plains. Together the Motorogi and Olare Orok Conservancies cover roughly 13,500 hectares (33,000 acres) and there are strict limits on the number of guests that can stay at any one time. The camp is well placed to observe the abundant game in the area and also to take advantage of the annual 'Great Migration', which sees up to one million wildebeest undertake a journey of roughly 1,600km.
