Sand River

Sand River Camp’s twenties-style glamour imparts that Out of Africa feeling to the classic safari holiday, though old-style camping was surely never this chic.

Named for the river on which it sits, Sand River is deep in the Masai Mara National Reserve and close to the border with the Serengeti. Guests get up close to Africa’s stunning wildlife all year round, with added drama in migration season.

Luxury combines with outdoor adventure – guests can choose soothing soaks in a copper-clad bath with the fun of an outdoor bucket shower. Interiors are sumptuous, with special touches like four-poster beds bedecked with mosquito nets and crystal glasses and decanters in each room. Wooden floors scattered with oriental carpets open onto decks facing the river.

Each of Sand River’s two family-friendly camps has 16 elegant tents scattered among the trees for quiet and privacy. Delectable meals are served in the central dining and living area. A library, billiard room and sparkling pool offer amusement between game drives, hot-air balloon flights and bush breakfasts, while friendly and efficient staff deliver exceptional service.

The low profile of the camps’ design ensures minimal visual disruption to the landscape. Solar water heating and careful management of waste minimise their environmental impact.
