As the annual Wildebeest migration approaches, Kenya’s iconic Sarova Mara Game Lodge has intensified the refurbishment of its facilities to tap into the current travel burst attracting a growing number of visitors both within and without the country as the year takes shape.
As Kenya’s tourism sector continues to gain momentum after a massive hit from the Covid-19 pandemic, both local and international tourists seem to have developed a liking for a “wild” experience, being in touch with nature after being holed up for a long period.
Sarova Mara Game Camp is ideally located in the heart of the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya and has over the years been offering a unique African safari experience for game viewing, with memories that live long after the whole exercise and experience is done.
Overall, the upgrade will feature 3 Family tented suites, 52 Deluxe tents, and 20 Club tents by the end of 2023. All Sarova Mara Game tented accommodation is master ensuite while the Club Tents offer a spectacular view of the rolling Savannah plains.
The facility also provides an organic garden that offers the freshest ingredients for some of the most exceptional cuisines with bush dining options available for all the guests.
