My mom, fiancé and I had the good fortune to select Sala's Camp from the Safari Collection for our journey to the Masai Mara. The small size of the camp and the distant location from the other camps in the park were two main reasons why we selected this location. The hosts of the camp Lou Lou and John were... More

Dear Joseph, It was a pleasure hosting you and Virginia at Sala’s Camp. Thank you for your feedback; since your visit we have cleared the bush around the solar panels near the tent you were in, which has made a positive difference to the hot water.

What an incredible experience! We visited Sala’s camp for 3 nights at the end of June for our honeymoon. It’s located just on the border of Tanzania and Kenya, and we got lucky as the wildebeest had literally just started crossing the border in their Great Migration across the plains. We got front row seats to the migration from both... 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
