EXPLORE NATURE MARA LODGE
Explore Nature Mara Lodge is situated in a timeless, unspoiled setting with fiery sunset views, stretching to distant horizons of the Masai Mara with some of the highest concentrations of wildlife in the world.
The lodge is surrounded by two rivers, Sand River and Oloolaimutia river, next to the Masai Mara game reserve. This location between the two rivers provides easy access for day and night game drives in the Masai Mara game reserve and the conservancy.
Additionally, guests have a chance to undertake extraordinary game–viewing walks along the river banks and cultural interactions with the local Masai community. We have 12 luxury tents and 8 luxury brick houses built in a crescent shape thatched in makuti roof to make the room temperature cool.
The Lodge offers two kinds of cottages depending on your desire and comfort. There are four double-traditional tents and four brick cottages, all with en suite bathrooms. We designed the entire lodge to ensure that each cottage is private and quiet whether for honeymooners or families with young children.

WALKING SAFARIS – NATURE WALKS
Setting out on a walking safari in the Masai Mara ecosystem not only offers you the chance to stretch your legs, but also the opportunity to focus on some of the smaller ecosystems that are often overlooked from the height of a vehicle.
The intricate construction of termite mounds, the role and importance of dung beetles, and the variety of bird life in the area are just some of the subjects you may encounter on your excursion. The walking safari guides are all highly trained and carry a wealth of information that they are only too happy to share, be it about a peculiar track in the sand or the call of an unseen bird.
We light a fire using a hardwood stick and softwood (cedar)! We set the cedar on a metal blade, then grind it with the hardwood stick. The shavings catch fire and are transferred to a bundle of dried grass to make a larger fire.
Be part of this thrilling activity and learn the basics of survival in the wilderness while you are sit around the blazing bonfire listening to traditional stories or enjoy dancing around it. This experience connects you to the local people in order to share and understand the African way of life.
MAASAI CULTURAL DANCES
This is a must for guests interested in experiencing the ancient Maasai culture and activities. Most of the Maasai dances are pretty simple, and consist of a lot of bending, but with the feet staying still on the ground. During the jumping dance, each young man will jump as high as he can while the others stand in a circle and sing.
The voices of the men get higher as the jumping increases. This jumping dance is as familiar to the Western world as the red-clad and beaded Maasai warriors themselves. In the Maasai language, this dancing competition is called the “adumu”. The Maasai have dances for celebration when a lion is killed by the warriors, a dance for the blessing of cattle, and dances performed at wedding ceremonies.
