Unpretentious luxury in the remote Kenyan wilderness, Sala's Camp has all the necessary ingredients for an outstanding safari experience. With only seven tents located on the property, the camp can only accommodate a maximum of eighteen guests at any one time. The camp is elegantly decorated and each safari tent features contemporary touches making guests feel both pampered and at home. This eco friendly camp makes use of solar-powered electricity and has a standby generator for refrigeration and charging devices. Aside from the camp’s man-made features, Sala's Camp is rich in natural ambiance and scenic beauty. The camp is located right along the Northern Corridor of the Serengeti, the scene of the world-famous great migration. It makes the camp an excellent location for guests to spot wildlife around the camp and for watching dramatic river crossings.
Each safari tent at Sala's Camp is fully decked out for the comfort of the camp’s guests. In addition to six luxury tents for one or two guests, there’s one safari tent suitable for either a romantic honeymoon or a family of up to four. This larger safari tent has a double room with a central sitting area. All tents are outfitted with glass fronted rooms, comfortable beds with crisp linens (and a hot water bottle for cold nights), en-suite bathrooms complete with hot showers, comfortable bathtubs, running water and flushing toilets. Despite the contemporary touches, the entire camp exudes a romantic sense of nostalgia of safari days gone by. Although, we're not quite sure if safari tents of yesteryear had the touch of decadence that you'll experience when you dip into your own private plunge pool. After a quick dip in the refreshing waters, you can sit back and relax on your own private deck with your favourite ice cold drink in hand.
Sala’s Camp is well known and liked for its hospitality and meticulous care for its guests. During your stay you'll enjoy full board complete with delicious, wholesome meals prepared over open fires. The camp's chefs prepare all meals using fresh seasonal ingredients locally sourced from Maasai farms. Home baked pastries, breads and biscuits are the camp's specialty. All meals are complemented with your favourite beverages. In the mornings enjoy your first cup of steaming hot and fragrant fresh coffee from your private deck overlooking the river and the Serengeti beyond. Have your bush breakfast served on the vast African plains. Enjoy packed lunches on safari and sit down to lovely sundowners featuring your favorite drinks and tasty snacks. As the African night falls and the stars twinkle in the endless sky above, have a seat next to a blazing fire for mouthwatering fireside dinner and a glass of fine wine.
Activities at Sala's Camp
Sala’s Camp has front row seats to the great migration, but there’s so much more to keep on the lookout for. The camp’s resident Maasai guides and trackers are highly skilled in helping you spot the big five, the little five and the ugly five. Go for an exhilarating game drive, take a thrilling guided bush walk, get a unique bird’s eye view during a hot air balloon ride, learn more about Maasai culture during a visit to a Masai manyatta (village), grab your binoculars and go bird-watching or spend an evening stargazing from your hammock. The camp even offers activities for your little ones and offers a special program that teaches kids the secrets of the bush. Keep in mind that some activities may require a surcharge.
Tripadvisor comments Sala's Camp
I would absolutely return to Sala’s Camp! We were not there for the migration but we saw plenty of animals. As we returned back to camp our guide pointed out we saw the big 5 just on our first day. The location, in the Mara overlooking the Sand River and Serengeti National Park, can’t be beat. The area is teaming with wildlife. On our last night, a leopard quietly passed through camp. The baboons alerting us were not so quiet. Also, the staff was extremely helpful and warm. The owner even pulled us out a ditch after our vehicle got stuck in the mud.

We traveled to the camp with two friends and our 3 children. We couldn't have hoped for a better place. As a family option, having the tents with two connected bedrooms and bathrooms is great. The tent and restaurant area are beautifully decorated. Between game drives, the kids could jump in the private pool on our deck overlooking the river. The safari breakfast was incredible. They set up the grill and cooked us fresh eggs and pancakes with fruit and drinks, all out in the Mara. The food at the camp was amazing. We felt incredibly spoiled the entire time we were there. We saw 2 leopards in trees, multiple lions, and all the other wonder animals you would expect. We would go back and enjoy it again!
