I have visited Masai Mara on various occasions and can say with confidence that this is THE camp to stay. Out of Africa theme not ostentatious but hits the mark. Mark and Hattie are a perfect combination of hosts and the staff don't miss a trick. Excellent meals and wine options. our driver/guide Sammy & Jackson the tracker ensured we... More

Sala's Camp is conveniently located in a quiet area along the Sand River and we witnessed the wildebeest crossings in front of our tents several times and of course we were put to sleep by the humming sounds of them as well! The staff were exceptional, friendly and efficient, thanks to Mark, Jodi, George and Fred. Our game drive guides,... More

If you were driving past you wouldn't know Salas camp was there. Amazing well hidden, the entrance is along a little track, one moment you are on safari, the next you are hidden amongst the trees shortly to emerge on to the banks of the Sand River. It is a lovely setting. The camp comprises 7 well finished and furnished... More

Despite originally booking for three nights, on departure I stepped off the plane and came back to camp for an extra few days - I could not bring myself to leave! Mikey, Mark, Jordi and the entire staff made the experience exceptional - they were accommodating, approachable and happy to respond to every whim. The service was outstanding and food of... More

At migration time, this will be the best place going. We were there a month earlier, and various safaris yielded plenty to see, so we were well satisfied. Mark and his team did a great job looking after us. Special mention to Anthony, who must be the best head waiter going. He should run a resort himself one day, he... More

We spent 3 nights in Salas, included Christmas Eve. What a fantastic place in the Mara at the Tanzanian border along a river. Our tent was very comfortable and fully equipped. The camp manager Debbie is a wonderful person and host. Our safari guides were great professionals and gave us the possibility to spot the big five, cheetahs and many... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Sala's Camp in the Maasai Mara national reserve. You stay in a proper tent (unless you pay the supplement for the honeymoon tent, which has wood floors I believe) which has a flush loo, sink, rain shower and hot water. The tents are comfortable. The lights are low (lanterns), the beds are big. The... More

We spent two nights at Sala's as a party of ten. Sala's is made up of seven tents along a river edge and a mess tent from which all the meals are served. The hosts Debbie & John were delightful and went over and above the call of duty when seven of our party were sick one night. My brother... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the less known southern area of the renowned Masai Mara, Sala’s Camp rests on the banks of the Sand and Keekorok rivers looking into Tanzania’s Serengeti on the opposite side. Sala’s Camp is nestled amongst an indigenous forest with views into the Northern Corridor, which is the route taken by the million wildebeest whose famous migration takes place annually. This makes Sala’s Camp the perfect spot to watch the Great Migration unfold. ... more   less
