This hotel says...

The Fairmont Mara Safari Club has opened following an extensive renovation program. Surrounded on three sides by the Mara River- and on the edge of the world*s Seventh *New* Wonder of the World The Masai Mara - Fairmont Mara Safari Club is the epitome of tented luxury. The main lodge at the center of camp hosts an indoor restaurant- bar and library with Internet access to keep the relatives up to date with safari adventures. A spacious outside deck overhangs the river and leads to a heated pool- complete with bar and private massage tents. With four poster- pillow-top beds and a veranda overlooking the hippo and crocodile-filled river- each of the 50 tents at Fairmont Mara Safari Club is superbly furnished with its own private- three-piece bathroom- including a number of *outdoor showers* in select tents. The larger-sized accommodations also feature expanded decks which allow for private dining- a new service. Outdoor dining has been enhanced with the creation of a boma- a structure influenced by traditional homesteads- where guests can enjoy a cultural dinner reflecting not only African cuisine but also rich musical accompaniment. Guests can choose from a wide range of activities at Fairmont Mara Safari Club resort hotel- including game drives and balloon safaris over the Mara plains capped with a champagne breakfast on the savannah or a stroll in the footprints of the hippo-trodden path escorted by a Masai Moran. The location provides a perfect base for visiting the Masai Mara- one of the world*s richest wildlife reserves- and home to an astounding array of animals including zebras- cheetahs- wildebeests- gazelles and of course the *Big Five*.

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."50 tents on the Mara River (a prime hippo-viewing spot), with a slew of activities, including traditional African dinners served in a boma. Luxurious accommodations include tented suites featuring four-poster beds graced with duvets and plaid accent fabrics. Colonial furnishings in all and outdoor showers in some bring a sense of history and location to this safari outpost. Private verandas survey the active hippo and crocodile scene below as guests sip British tea or wine and nosh on African specialties of barbecued meats and fresh, local produce. Novice outdoorsmen will feel comfortable on "Big Five" game drives accompanied by a pair of Masai warrior guides dressed in full regalia." ~From Travelandleisure.com
