Things to do
Working so closely with our team at Mahali Mzuri, sometimes we forget what a truly special experience a trip to the Maasai Mara is for guests. We love hearing what it is about a stay in camp that really sets us apart from the competition. Recently, Graeme Crossley and Emily Fletcher got in touch with us after their honeymoon vacation at Mahali. They loved their time with us so much that they provided us with some great feedback, highlighting specific parts of their visit that really stood out for all the right reasons. Here is a mini overview of their visit, in their own words:
Our stay at Mahali Mzuri took place in January. Upon arrival at the airport, we were met by a representative of Mahali Mzuri called Vincent who had a glass of chilled champagne ready and waiting for us. Meeting Vincent and having time with him from the airport to the safari camp gave us the opportunity that we needed to ask any last minute questions we had about our trip. This personable touch was fantastic! Throughout the whole experience, all the staff were great, calling us by our names from the start. They couldn't have been more attentive.
On arrival at Mahali Mzuri, I don't think words can fully express how fantastic the camp looks and feels. We stayed in one of the tented suites which are beautifully appointed and the views are absolutely breathtaking. Being an all-inclusive stay, it was lovely to be able to help ourselves to the bar and the snacks whenever we wanted.
The game drives were, of course, the highlight of the whole experience. Our guide, Dickson, was absolutely brilliant, full of knowledge and enthusiasm. One morning, we had breakfast out in the Mara which he set up for us in the most scenic location. The day got even better when, during the afternoon drive, he made us G&Ts in the jeep whilst we watched a pride of lions nearby! Perhaps best of all though, and it is little touches like this that really set Mahali Mzuri apart, Dickson had a hot water bottle prepared for all of us in the morning to keep us warm during the early hours, and during the turn-down service, a hot water bottle each was placed in our bed.
Another adventure we organised during our stay was a sunrise hot air balloon trip. It's worth noting that this involves a 3am wakeup call and a two hour trip over bumpy roads in the dark, but it was totally worth it. The views from the sky were incredible and a champagne breakfast was somehow set up in the middle of nowhere for our landing.
We loved our stay immensely! We would like to personally thank all the Mahali Mzuri team for making this such a memorable trip for us.
If like Graeme and Emily, you want to tell us about your visit, we always love to hear from our guests. Get in touch with us either by email firstname.lastname@example.org or on our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/mahalimzuri.
