Sala’s Camp, Masai Mara

The first place in the Mara to watch the great migration. The best place to see game year round – including the Big Five, the Little Five and the Ugly Five.

You hold your breath. In the lens of your camera is one of Africa’s most dangerous animals. The buffalo stares back, ponderously assessing you. Meeting any of the Big Five – buffalo, elephants, rhinos, lions and leopards - is a life-defining moment, but the Little Five can also give you a sense of wonder. Rhino beetles, buffalo weavers, ant lions, leopard tortoises and elephant shrews don’t have the physical presence of their namesakes, but they’re just as mesmerising. Similarly, you wouldn’t want to miss the Ugly Five – vultures, Marabou stork, hyenas, baboons and warthogs.

Make Sala’s Camp part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Kenya and you’ll encounter all sorts of marvellous animals, as well as witnessing the great migration across the Masai Mara – one of nature’s most astounding events.
