Ashnil Mara Camp, with 50 luxury tents, is located in the Masai Mara National Reserve and close to the Mara River, famous for the wildebeest migration. Our luxury Masai Mara Camp is arguably in one of the very best positions in the Masai Mara for game viewing and also provides the perfect setting to sit and relax at the end of an exciting day of game drives.

The Ashnil Mara Camp is a 4 – 5 hour drive from Nairobi or alternatively there are daily scheduled flights from Nairobi to the Masai Mara which take just 45 mins. You may also fly from the Mombasa Coast to our luxury tented camp in just 2 hrs.



Ashnil Samburu Camp is a luxury tented camp set in the spectacular backdrop drop of the Mighty Ol Olokwe mountain fronting Ewaso Nyiro River. The 19 exclusive luxury Tents are spread out along the shady banks of the river under a thick stand of doum Palms. It features an outdoor swimming pool surrounded by sun lounges, a garden and a Lounge bar offering views of the African savannah. Each tent features a decked Terrance with views of the Ewaso Nyiro River.

Ashnil Aruba Lodge lies in the heart of Tsavo East National Park in Kenya. The Lodge features 46 rooms and 6 tents. Its location is superb, just a couple of hours from the coast of Mombasa, 5 hours leisurely drive from Nairobi and is located on the banks of Aruba Dam which was built in 1952 as a sport fishing recreational point in the park. Several watering holes nearby attract wildlife and spotting animals is easy because the park lies flat with savannah grassland.


Buffalo Springs, KENYA

Set in the heart of the great northern territory, amidst the sprawling arid landscape, mottled with lava stones and desert flora & fauna, pours in this beautifully crafted creation that exceeds the term “safari-chic”.
A Camp ever so passionately designed; an oasis carefully built by amalgamating rock & canvas, imbibing both Safari & Swahili senses.

The 16 Tents each with individual plunge pools are carefully positioned on a brow with breathtaking views of the undulating Ewaso and Isiolo River confluence at its foot and in the backdrop, the ever-present Ololokwe and sister hills that complete a heavenly vista.

The Mara’s gentle fertile climate bounded by The Rift offers an almost unlimited spectacle of wildlife set within 1672 sq km. Herds of immense elephants can be seen along with lions, buffalo, Thompson's gazelle, Zebra, topi, leopard and rhino. In the Mara River pods of hippo wallow, and huge crocodiles bask on the river banks, waiting for the next prey to come along. Typically during the months from July to September, the annual wildebeest migration follows the rains north from Tanzania’s Serengeti up into the Mara and creates one of the world’s greatest spectacles as they cross the river.
Many people dismiss Tsavo East and West when booking a Kenya safari and head straight to the more famous Masai Mara and Samburu National Parks but all three of these parks have their own unique feel and resident wildlife and are worthy of a visit. Combined Tsavo East and West form one of the largest national parks in the world at 13,747 Sq Km and covers almost 4% of Kenya’s entire land mass.
Dramatically hot under the harsh equatorial sun, watered by the Ewaso Nyiro River, rich in huge Nile crocodile and Hippo, Samburu contains some rarely found species, including reticulated giraffe, blue legged somali ostriches and grevy’s zebra. Buffalo Springs Game Reserve, which is on the edge of Samburu takes its name from an oasis of crystal clear water at the western end of the reserve. It is separated from Samburu National Reserve by the Ewaso Nyiro River and is less hilly and dense yet equally very attractive. The topography of the reserve is characterized by gentle rolling lowland plains.
