We just returned from spending three night at Sala's Camp and cannot recommend it enough. The tents were fantastic and the perfect combination of comfortable and rustic. Listening to the lions roar during the night and the occational nightly visit from an elephant (or 30) was just out of this world. The staff there is amazing. Friendly, service-minded, knowledgable and... More

This quiet camp on the banks of the Sand river is beyond compare. The other reviews have highlighted the major considerations in choosing the perfect safari location. All this is true but it is really the small things that set Sala's apart from all others. The tents were comfortable with hot running water in the bush!! WOW. the warm poncho... More

This is a little gem of a camp set beside the Sand River inside the Masai Mara Reserve. Although small it has great atmosphere and the guides are very knowledgable about birds and wildlife. The tented accomodation is very comfortable but the honeymoon tent was superb. Thanks to Mark and all the staff for their hospitality and welcome. We would... More

We have just returned from a fabulous 3 night stay at Sala's camp. The location of this tented camp is just perfect in a quite part of the Masaai Mara on the banks of the Sand River. The camp is stylish and authentic and excellently managed by Mark and his team. Nothing was too much trouble and all the staff... More

Just back from Africa and 4 days at the camp. We were treated extremely well, and Mark the manager was the perfect host. He has a charming way about him, and clearly enjoys his job, and could not be more attentive to the guests needs. The food was varied and delicious and plentiful. The staff and guides were warm and... More

We flew to Sala's Camp after a memorable stay at its sister camp, Solio Lodge. Salas Camp has traditional tented accommodation which is comfortable, but not luxurious like Solio. As previously stated, Salas is a social camp with communal dining encouraged. We were on our honeymoon and preferred to dine alone - Mark the manager ensuring we always had our... More

Overall: Although the accommodation is tented and the camp is not fenced, I felt that in someway, it gave me a truer safari experience as you often have game coming through the camp and so I loved my stay here. However, staying in a tent cannot offer the same comforts as a lodge (I will expand below) so if you’re... More

Sala's Camp is a classic permanent tented camp on the banks of the Sand River, practically on the border of Tanzania. It's beautifully situated for relaxation as well as wildlife viewing. My tent was a 10-second walk from the main tent where guests ate and lounged and availed themselves of wi-fi. I loved this area as it was so comfortably... More

We arrived at Sala's camp as strangers and left as lifelong friends. Situated on the bank of the Sand River, bordering Tanzania, Sala's had everything we could have hoped for while visiting the Mara. From our first warm welcome from Mark and his amazing staff, to the incredible accommodations, freshly prepared food( dietary restrictions are taken into account), we were... More

As part of my Safari Collection trip, I visited Sala's Camp as my third destination. Unfortunately, this was a hard act to follow after staying at Sasaab and Solio Lodge. The accomodation was a tent, very accommodating (but not like the luxury I had previously experienced) and the food less haute cuisine. It all depends on what you are looking... More
