GUIDE ON ASHNIL MARA CAMP IN KENYA
Spread on the banks of the chocolate brown Mara River with hippos lying either submerged in the water or napping on the sand banks, is the Ashnil Mara Camp. A deluxe accommodation, its location is such that on your dream trip in Kenya with AfricanMecca, you could view the seasonal Great Migration of the wildebeests make their way across the river. The breezy, relaxed ambience of this safari camp is evident in the open reception, lounge, bar and restaurant areas. Elevated above the ground, these areas have canvas roofs with floors of hardwood and crazy stone. Only a low railing of crisscrossed tree trunks separates you from the lush tropical greenery outside that abounds with some of the 450 species of birds that thrive in the Masai Mara National Reserve. The camp also has a covered patio off the restaurant where you can lounge in comfortable chairs while on your relaxing nature holiday on the plains of East Africa and watch the wildlife activity along the river. Well-maintained lawns with trees everywhere form the setting of the 40 tented rooms the camp offers frill guests traveling in this zone of south-western Kenya. Made entirely of canvas on a flat wooden platform with a roll-up entrance, each tent is designed for your comfort with either twin or double beds. Mosquito netting is draped on the tree trunk, four posters around the bed while rugs with African motifs hug part of the hardwood floors. The en-suite bathroom comes with a shower stall, bathrobe, deluxe toiletries, hair dryer, washbasin and vanity area. Your tented room also includes a small closet for storage, safety box, writing desk and standing fan while the patio has a round sofa-cum-daybed that again allows views of the river and the animals visiting it for a refreshing drink. Some of the tents are located at a distance from the main areas and your walks to your room are accompanied by a Maasai guard in the evenings interrupted by nocturnal sounds of bird and animal calls from the bush.
The camp's restaurant serves a varied selection of inter-continental and local cuisine complemented by wines, cocktails and beers, and you might also find Indian, continental and oriental fare. All meals are served buffet style, but they also cook stir fry and pasta dishes to your taste on the spot. The camp can set up a private bush breakfast for you beside the river so you can watch hippos in their pool while you eat. If you intend to stay out longer on your morning game drives, you can request for a packed lunch. Wi-Fi services are available in the common areas. Game drives are organized twice every day, in the early morning, and late afternoon and AfricanMecca makes custom-rigged safari vehicles available during your bush vacation. Your experienced guide on board will take you to see the amazing wildlife, and as you nature tour the Masai Mara Game Reserve, he will talk to you at length about the Big Five of Africa and the other terrestrial, aquatic and avian creatures you will track down and see. Prepare to be awed by the in-depth knowledge he has and the exciting local lore he reveals as you wander through his village close by. If you wish to view the flora and insect life of Masai Mara, then you must take nature walks while balloon safari flights are the ultimate way for an avian overview of the Mara landscape (view reserve map). Return to Ashnil Mara at the end of the day for sundowner or pre-dinner drinks around the campfire before retiring for the night after your wholesome safari dinner.
