Sentinel Mara Safari Camp is situated in a prime area of the Masai Mara National Reserve. The Musiara Marsh area renowned for its outstanding game viewing is where both the BBC “Big Cat Diaries” and Disney’s “African Cats” were filmed. You are assured of an excellent game viewing experience. During the annual migration, various crossing points are easily accessible from Sentinel.
The camp itself is set up along the Mara River with wonderful bird life and the private and natural setting ensures that guests have a most enjoyable and authentic experience of the bush. Being on high banks above the Mara River means that there are always hippo and crocodile in the river below to be seen with other animals coming to drink, or cross the river at times.
At Sentinel you are not staying in some hotel room, but authentically close to nature in a large luxury tent, carefully positioned in a forest overlooking the Mara River. Each one is furnished with hand made mahogany furniture reflecting the indulgence of traditional East African Safari elegance.
The secluded luxury tented camp is set up in an exceptional location in a forest on the banks of the Mara River. This ensures that guests derive maximum pleasure from their natural surroundings and the abundance of wildlife.
Spacious tents with en suite porcelain toilets and hot showers are tucked away in the forest. Each tent along the river is tastefully furnished with campaign furniture to capture the romance and adventure of a bygone era.
Wi-Fi as well as charging facilities are available in the lounge tents.
In addition to time spent relaxing at the camp with the view the river and wildlife seen from this amazing location, there are a number of activities for guests to enjoy. Our bespoke approach to safari hospitality means that each group enjoys a personalized and flexible experience to match their particular preferences while at our camp.
Daily game drives can be complimented by guided bush walks in a nearby area with our naturalist or a bird walk in the forest around the precincts of the camp. We offer a longer walk on the escarpment with amazing vistas of the savannah plains.
Guests can visit a Masai village for an opportunity to see their lifestyle and learn about their customs and culture. A balloon safari with champagne breakfast is another option.
Our passionate and well qualified guides are always ready to engage in conversation ranging from history and current affairs to culture and conservation in a way that is entertaining and educational. They have a whole range of stories to tell you!
