Our Clients Love Elewana Sand River Masai Mara

by Sandy Salle on July 9, 2019

We have had two VIP families just return from Elewana Sand River Masai Mara and they found the safari camp to be magnificent and were so happy they had chosen to stay here! Situated along the banks of a river from which it has taken its name, Elewana Sand River Masai Mara is located within the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya on a secluded and picturesque site. The camp enjoys stunning views over the Sand River and out to the neighboring grassy hills and plains of Tanzania.

The camp sits on the migration route for the millions of wildebeest, zebra and Thompson’s gazelle that move between Serengeti and Maasai Mara every year. Guests enjoy the privilege of exclusive views of the plains and hills dotted with thousands of animals as well as being in the thick of the excitement of frenetic and famed river crossings, all from the comfort of camp. 

Comprising of 16 luxury tents, Elewana Sand River Masai Mara replicates the heyday of exclusive permanent tented camps of the late 1920’s.

Divided into two separate but adjoining campsites of 10 and 6 tents, each area possessing its own designated dining and public areas, Elewana Sand River Masai Mara provides an atmosphere of exclusivity and class.

The Masai Mara is renowned for its spectacular game viewing and wildlife interactions. Why not enjoy it with the most traditional of safari activities – a game drive! With a knowledgeable guide, a custom-designed car and a car fridge full of cold drinks, enjoy a morning, afternoon or full day out in the grassy plains, and riverine forest of the Masai Mara.

Our VIP clients shared that staying for a final morning drive on their last day at Sand River where they had an incredible morning drive complete with breakfast in the bush was quite luxurious for them. Look how close one of our other VIP clients was to the lion right outside the game drive vehicle!

If you would love to visit Elewana Sand River Masai Mara, we would love to speak with you about just that. Feel free to call us at 800.940.9344 or send an email to hoainfo@hillsofafrica.com. We would love to speak with you!
