The luxury safari camp of Sir Richard Branson, Mahali Mzuri has been voted the best hotel in the world in the Travel + Leisure Awards 2021. Nestled in the wilderness of the Olare Motorogi Conservancy in Kenya, Mahali Mzuri allows guests to stay amid the rich Maasai Mara ecosystem. It comprises 12 swanky tents with comfy bedding, a private bath, elegant leather furniture and much more. The large windows and doors of the tents offer sightings of the majestic creatures that reside in the wilderness like a herd of handsome zebras, gorgeous gazelles or towering giraffes.
Say ‘Hi’ To The Herd Of Zebras!
The word Mahali Mzuri translates to ‘beautiful place’ in the Swahili language. And the place is indeed true to its name. Perched on the side of the valley, the campsite beautifully captures the views of the surrounding treasure trove. Conveniently located in the conservancy, the camp allows only a maximum of twenty-four guests to stay at a time. Guests can experience tranquillity in the pristine nature here and also watch the game of the wilds up and close.
During the annual ‘Great Migration’, guests can witness around one million wildebeests taking a journey of nearly 1,600 kilometres. That’s profoundly mesmerising, isn’t so?
Experience The Maasai Way Of Living
While sojourning at Mahali Mzuri, guests do not need to go far to meet the wildlife. The beautiful animals can come right at the doorstep. From the safari camp, guests can embark on game drives to spot elephants, zebras, lions and more. The camp also offers Maasai Community Tours to give guests an insight into the daily life of the local Masaai Tribe. Despite the conspicuous remoteness of the campsite, the chefs here plate out gourmet pan-African dishes with a variety of flavours. Also, guests can indulge in rejuvenating treatments at the Nasaro spa.
