Things to do
British Virgin Islands
The thrill of going on a game drive is difficult to top, so our advice is try and soak up the views from all the sharing spaces and sit back and take in the view, keep your binoculars handy as you never know what you’ll spot! Relax in our Main Tent that features an open but snuggly lounge area with fireplace, a library of books, iPads, iPod docking stations and speaker systems and a TV/DVD. We’ve got a 12 metre outdoor infinity pool, big enough for a leisurely swim or a refreshing dip.
Game drives filled to the brim with exciting African wildlife sightings. At Mahali Mzuri we have twice daily game drives which are filled to the brim with exciting wildlife sightings as well as romantic scenery and dramatic views. To find out more information about game drives, head to our Game Drives section.
If you are looking for something that little be different from your normal game drive experience, how about...
Game drives at night!
Game drives in the evening open up a whole new world with the chance to see predominantly nocturnal game including aardvarks and honey badgers. Full day excursions with a packed lunch give us the flexibility to really explore the conservancies, and for the curious we can also organise day trips to the Maasai Mara National Reserve.

Maasai Community Tours
While you’re staying at Mahali Mzuri you’re welcome to visit one of the Maasai villages in the local area to get a flavour for daily life in the Mara and to learn about the local Maasai Tribe whose traditional pastoralist customs are still very much in practice. The village is only 10 minutes’ drive from Mahali Mzuri and the best times to go are first thing in the morning when you can help milk the cattle or in the evening when the cattle, goats and sheep are being herded back to their enclosures for the night.
The local school is a further 5 minute drive from the village. This is where the Maasai children aged 3-15 years attend. You are welcome to visit the school, please let your guide know in advanced of your trip.Your Guides at Mahali Mzuri will take you on a tour and introduce you to their families while explaining some of the cultures and traditions.
