About Us

Fairmont Mara Safari Club is tucked peacefully in the north-western corner of the renowned Maasai Mara Game Reserve, home to the great wildebeest migration. The Club, set on the foot of Aitong Hills offers 51 luxuriously furnished tents featuring four-poster beds, en suite facilities and private decks overlooking the hippo and crocodile filled Mara River. With an outdoor swimming pool, lounge and restaurant and exciting game drives accompanied by the most scenic sundowner cocktails and dining experiences in the bush; Fairmont Mara Safari Club is the perfect base for safari adventure in the incredible African Savannah

Best of the Best

Rustic adventure doesn’t get any more glamorous than at the Fairmont Mara Safari Club. Set along the banks of the hippo-favored Mara River in the heart of Africa’s most cherished wildlife reserve, its 51 tents feature four-poster beds and expansive decks; a number have outdoor showers. In addition to taking daily game drives, guests can join walking safaris, visit a local Maasai community, go birding, ride BMW bikes or swim in the pool. Definitely plan a hot-air balloon ride over the Mara plains. Evenings are spent over African feasts served in a traditional boma, complete with dancing and music.

Hotel Tip

Ask about the Duma Family Suite, with a balcony that runs the length of the three tents overlooking the hippo-filled river.

Still #1 on the Maasai Mara for a Safari:

By: Schnooky


Reviewed on: 30 Oct 2017

This my second visit, first was 26 years ago in 1991. Since Fairmont took it over, they have COMPLETELY made new and modern Tents and totally upgraded the in-suite facilities. This is not to say that it was so 'bad' back in 1991, because it was still first class then. Our driver/guide for our Toyota Land Cruiser Jeramyer, was Excellent and highly recommended. The facilities are all first class including the dining, the heated swimming pool and they even have 'a' TV with CNN and other stations in the Library. Enjoy.
