Enjoy the fresh morning breeze, the break of dawn and the bush coming to life in the early morning hours of the day. Our staff will give you a wake-up call at your discretion while hot coffee and tea is already brewing. You can return to the lodge for a breakfast after your morning safari, or you can continue exploring the Masai Mara National Reserve and the Siana Conservancy with a bush breakfast and picnic lunch to have a full day in the park.


The Siana Conservancy allows our guests to view the stunning wildlife without interference from other vehicles.


Early morning is the ideal time to see wild animals on the plains. Experience the crisp fresh air of the Masai Mara Game Reserve, silently floating above in a hot air balloon. The balloon lifts off at dawn after coffee and a flight briefing. The one hour flight will give you a birds eye view of the best East Africa has to offer. After your champagne breakfast you will enjoy a game drive back to the lodge.


Although bush walks and hiking tours in the Masai Mara Game Reserve are strictly prohibited, we offer our guests the exciting adventure of a walking safari in the Siana Conservancy. Feel, smell, hear and touch wild Africa. Our specially trained guides will ensure your safety at all times while explaining to you the traditional medicinal uses of different shrubs and trees as well as the tracks and spoors of the animals in the Siana Conservancy.



More than 570 bird species can be found in the Masai Mara, making it the perfect place for ornithologists to see a rare bateleur or saddle billed stork. For real twitchers we suggest you take advantage of the services of Ohad, one of our freelance guides, an expert with an in-depth knowledge and vast experience of the birds of East Africa. Special care has been taken with the vegetation surrounding the lodge to encourage a wide variety of bird species that can be viewed from your suites.



Spirit of the Masai Mara offers excursions to the nearby Masai village for a first-hand experience of the Masai culture and lifestyle. Enjoy the traditional Masai dances and jumping contests and learn from the Masai how to make fire and use a spear and bow and arrow. If you are lucky, you can experience the ceremonial rituals when young Masai transition from childhood to warrior to elder.
