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

We spent three nights at Sala's Camp and really loved the experience. There is something amazing about sleeping in a real tent, hearing the animals moving around and knowing that canvas is all that separates you from the action.

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
