I'll refrain from commenting on the Mara itself as that is of course a great place to be. Sala's Camp is really a safari camp like safari camps are meant to be. Its tents speak of old luxury travel safaris the like that did not depend on concrete showers and permanent wooden structures. These tents are enormously comfortable and have... More

I spent a fantastic 3 days at Sala's Camp in April of this year. It was my first safari experience and i doubt it will ever be bettered. The camp itself is beautiful, set next to a river and hidden among trees. The tents are spacious, clean and comfortable with big beds perfect for falling asleep in to the sounds... More

We traveled to Kenya for 2 weeks and stayed at all four of the properties managed by the Safari Collection. We loved each amazing property but it was our time at Sala's Camp that felt the most special. Each staff member went above and beyond to make sure our experience was second to none. We were upgraded to the honeymoon... More

Sala's Camp is a traditional tented camp on the Masai Mara near the Tanzanian border and close to the Serengeti. Whilst purporting to offer a high standard of glamping, Sala's is not for those who expect all of the comforts of a city hotel. Nevertheless Mark and his staff go out of their way to meet your every need and... More

Sala's Camp is the purest of Safari experiences i have ever had. The tented camp is made to fit with the nature around and situated in the least touristic and best game view area of Massai Mara. I felt like Karen Blixen must have felt, going camping with a big crew. Mark and his team are extremely attentive to every... More

Hi Stale, thanks for the great review, was such a pleasure to have you here in camp and we hope you got some great photos of the hyenas and vultures on that poor elephant that had died of old age. The wildebeest and Zebra are now streaming across the border so we hope to see you at some point for... More

We stayed at Sala's Camp for 3 nights in December and five stars is not enough! Everything was first class and the staff went over and above in every single aspect of our stay.

Do not pass up this chance to stay in the middle of all the activity on the Mara! I felt like I was as close as I could get to a real African experience. The food was spectacular, service was beyond compare! Loved every minute of it!!
