After travelling to Giraffe Manor, Sasaab and Solio Lodge, we had one last stop in the Safari Collection: Sala’s Camp. We were particularly excited to arrive at this lodge as it is situated in the southern, wilder corner of Kenya’s mighty Masai Mara game reserve close to the confluence of the Sand and Keekorok Rivers – an idyllic geographical feature that attracts teeming wildlife. Sala’s Camp location is the big draw, as it is close to Tanzania with wonderful views of the Serengeti National Park, and it is one of the first camps in the Mara to witness the legendary annual migration of wildebeest – but more about that in another post.

Sala’s Camp also offers the best of the Masai Mara’s wildlife and birdlife, and we were so richly rewarded with a leopard, elephant and lion sighting all on our first day!
