Perched in the uplands of the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, Richard Branson’s Kenyan resort offer unbeatable opportunities for face-to-face wildlife encounters. Comprising only 12 tents and a main dining room/camp centre, this boutique safari resort is perfect for groups, solo travellers and couples alike.
Unique tent accommodation
Mahali Mzuri tents are unlike any other. These robust structures feature tarpaulin roofs and wooden walls and floors. Enjoy ‘sundowners’ on your own private terrace. Watch the sun go down over the spectacular Masai Mara. Vast windows afford panoramic views across the plains, and rooms are tastefully appointed with furnishings made from local materials. Dinner is prepared using local ingredients and inspired from pan-African cuisine. You might eat in the Dining Tent, have dinner served on your terrace or even organize a meal in the bush, under the night sky.
Memorable game drives
Animals can often be seen roaming freely near the resort. Depart on one, or both, of the daily game drives to explore the Olare Motorogi Conservancy further. Here, you can expect to come across buffalos, giraffes, elephants, zebras and maybe some elusive leopards. Knowledgeable guides take you out to help you to spot the animals. If you visit between July and September, you have every chance of seeing one of the great moderns wonders of the world; the great migration.
After a day spent galloping around the reserve, you will want to unwind. All rooms come fully equipped with Wi-Fi and iPod and iPad docking stations. Book a spa treatment; full body experiences are available using massage, essential oils and crystal energies. Alternatively, unwind by the pool with a gin and tonic and absorb the remarkable surroundings. Mahali mzuri means ‘beautiful place’ in Swahili. After a few moments here, you will soon see why this resort was given this name.

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
