The Siana Conservancy, located on the eastern edge of Masai Mara National Reserve, serves as the migratory path used by hordes of wildebeest and zebras between July and October. Game drives are conducted in the private Siana Conservancy and the Masai Mara by silver certified Masai guides from the local community, who ensure thrilling wildlife encounters with Africa’s most famous inhabitants.
Positioned to maximise game viewing opportunities from all areas, the unfenced lodge and suites feature floor-to-ceiling expanses of glass and verandahs overlooking the plains that are often filled with movement and activity. There is nothing quite like watching African wildlife from the comfort of a luxurious, air-conditioned suite, or even better, soaking your stresses away in a massive bubble-filled bathtub while observing the comings and goings of day- and night-time visitors that come to slake their thirst at the waterhole in front of the lodge.
The 10 individual thatch-roofed suites also have private terraces, a spacious bedroom with a king-sized bed, a separate lounge area, minibar stocked with complimentary beverages, and a walk-in shower alongside the bathtub-with-a-view.
While it may be tempting to spend all of one’s time enjoying the comforts of the suites, guests will be lured back to the lodge by the promise of mouthwatering Kenyan and continental cuisine, much of it prepared with fresh vegetables, herbs and tropical fruit grown in the lodge’s own organic garden. The delicious fare can be enjoyed in a variety of venues, mostly al fresco, overlooking the waterhole, around a log fire, or in the bush.
In between exciting safari excursions and sublime meals, guests can get respite from the heat in the cool swimming pool, or relax on a deck chair in the shade of an umbrella, contemplating the beauty of the Siana conservancy.
Spirit of the Masai Mara can be reached by a 45-minute flight from Nairobi to the Keekorok airstrip in Masai Mara National Reserve, or by the Nairobi-Narok road.
