The Perfect Masai Mara Safari Camp On The Banks Of The Sand River, Brought To You By The Elewana Collection
Elewana Sand River Masai Mara is an upmarket luxurious option located within the Masai Mara National Reserve. The perfect safari camp option for those looking for a more classic tented safari experience deep in the heart of Kenya's most famed park.
The safari camp overlooks the Sand River, the endless plains and the grassy hills of the Masai Mara. Year-round wildlife sightings are nothing short of excellent but should one wish to view the annual migration, the months of August, September, and October is best (the camp lies on the northerly route of the great migration).
Elewana Sand River is divided into two separate camps for a more intimate and private experience; each camp offers up its own designated dining and public areas.
The Elewana Sand River Masai Mara is the perfect place to experience the beauty of Africa, Kenya and the Masai Mara.
Elewana Sand River Masai Mara camp offers guests the choice of 16 tented suites, all of which are located on the banks of the Sand River with spectacular views of both the river bed and the surrounding Masai Mara plains.
- 15x tented suites (4 twins and 11 doubles)

All tented suites offer large beds with mosquito netting, luxury decor, private wooden decks, en-suite bathrooms with bathtubs and outdoor showers.

As with all Elewana lodges and camps throughout Kenya and Tanzania, the cuisine will always be of the highest standard, no matter the time of day or night.
Fresh ingredients, skilled chefs and unique dining locations, what more could one ask for when on safari in the middle of the Masai Mara?
A highlight of one's stay is the bush breakfasts and dinners out under the African stars; delicious picnic lunches are on offer should one be on a full-day game drive.
Elewana Sand River Masai Mara offers an array of fine wines and beers from all over the world. Guests can enjoy a cold beer or glass of wine while watching the sunset over the African savannah or after a long day of game viewing. There is something to suit everyone's taste, whether you prefer a crisp, refreshing beer or a smooth, fruity wine.
Most dietary requests can be catered for with advance notice.

Kenya safari ambassador tributeIn memoriam Honey; Honey was famous for jumping into vehicles to obtain a better view of her idyllic world - the Masai Mara Game Reserve. This special cheetah was killed on the 17th of February 2007 in full view of her three remaining cubs.
Impressions Of KenyaKenya’s wildlife remains at the heart of its attractions, yet there is much more to discover in this fascinating country outside the game reserves. You can climb the slopes of Mount Kenya to find tropical ice on the Equator, or explore the coral reefs of the Mombasa coast.
Explore The Masai Mara By BalloonIt was one of those rare moments where you take in the majesty of nature in complete silence, disturbing nothing, saying nothing. In Kenya last month, I had the great pleasure of a balloon safari over the Masai Mara organised by the excellent and highly professional Governors Company.
Giraffe Manor ReviewLocated in the southern suburbs of Nairobi is an English manor house. When it was built, the country was unclaimed bush rampant with African wildlife. The home of Karen Blixen is nearby who posthumously lends her name to this suburb, Karen.
Hells Gate KenyaI had visions of being trampled by buffalo, stalked by lions, or, given the extreme humidity and daytime temperatures, falling prey to one of the thousands of vultures who call Hell's Gate National Park their home. But our guide assured me that it would be fun.
