Fairmont Mara Safari Club

Fairmont Mara Safari Club is tucked peacefully in the north-western corner of the renowned Maasai Mara Game Reserve; home to the great wildebeest migration and rightly considered to be one of the ‘Seven New Wonders of the World’.

The Club is set on the foot of Aitong Hills and surrounded on three sides by the Mara River; a perfect base for safari adventure in the incredible African Savannah.

The 51 luxuriously furnished tents with four-poster beds and en-suite facilities also have spacious private decks overlooking the river giving a vantage view of the crocodiles and hippos below. 

The property features an outdoor heated pool complete with a poolside bar, lounge, restaurant and private massage tents.

Activities include game drives, walking safaris, hot-air balloon safaris with spectacular views of the wildlife, sundowner bush cocktail and private romantic dinner served on the deck.
