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

Our driver Sammy and spotter Freddy were very conscientious and we saw so many amazing sights ~ breakfast on the land was a delight and i shared with Sammy how... 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. The manager, Mark, was an amazing host. Our 13 year old son is a very picky eater coupled with allergies which had us a bit worried... More

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!!

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
