Masai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya
With the gentle Mara River winding itself through the property, those who stay at Neptune Mara Rianta Luxury Camp will be blessed with wonderful views of gigantic hippo resting by the water’s edge. Nestled within the Masai Mara North Conservancy, the 20 elevated tents offer a lovely sense of exclusivity and luxury.
Raised from the ground on wooden platforms, each gorgeous tent features a private viewing deck, offering the perfect spot to enjoy your own company and watch beautiful wildlife below. The interiors nod towards authentic African décor, with bright colours and patterns adding a touch of contemporary styling with home comforts such as hairdryers in the rooms. Each large tent is well-spaced, separated by thick bush for added privacy, with both the bathroom and bedroom providing breath-taking views of hippo pods in the Mara River below.
Hidden amongst indigenous plants and trees, the camp is intimate and secluded. We love resting by the sparkling pool that overlooks the river, and delicious al fresco lunches and evening BBQs take place here too. Dine on a divine barbecue whilst watching traditional Masai dancing, or enjoy a presentation on the Masai culture.
Dining on fresh, local cuisine is another highlight of this luxurious camp. The Acacia Dining Room is set within the luscious canopies, serving up tantalising dishes that will delight even the most discerning of diners. Meanwhile, the Zebra Bar & Lounge has a decadent 1920’s explorer vibe, providing a cool place to sip your favourite cocktail or enjoy an after-dinner tipple.
You’ll regularly see hippos grazing by the river, but there’s ample opportunity to discover more magnificent wildlife too, including daily game drives, guided nature walks, and bird watching. The camp can even organise a private breakfast, lunch or dinner out in the bush, adding to the brilliant feeling of living amongst the wild. Once back at the camp, treat yourself to a massage at Earth & Rain Spa, using natural ingredients to nourish the body, mind and soul.
