Getting here

Make your way to Mahali Mzuri

Mahali Mzuri is about 240km due west of Nairobi and the best way to arrive is by plane to Nairobi-Wilson Airport. We can arrange transfers between international and domestic airports for arrivals from outside Kenya.

Where we are

Mahali Mzuri is located within the Olare Motorogi Conservancy. The camp is perched on the side of a lush valley overlooking rolling plains.

By plane from Europe

The main international airport in Nairobi, Kenya’s capital, is Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, with daily direct flights from the main European hubs: London, Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam as well as New York.

By plane from South Africa and the Middle East

There are daily arrivals from Johannesburg in South Africa as well as from hubs in the Middle East including Dubai and Doha.

Flight times

Flights from Europe take on average just over eight hours and direct flights from New York will take 15 hours. Those connecting from any other USA hub will need to travel via one of the cities mentioned above.

Getting to Mahali Mzuri

A number of domestic airlines are based at Nairobi-Wilson Airport and most provide scheduled flights to the region which take an hour or less.  

There are two airstrips close to Mahali Mzuri that we would recommend guests use. The closest airstrip is the Olare Orok which is approximately 25 minutes away from Mahali Mzuri. The second is the Mara North airstrip where the journey by vehicle to the camp is roughly one hour's drive. 

Both airstrips are served by flights operated by Safarilink Aviation and Air Kenya. Olare Orok is also served by Governor's Aviation. 

Special charter flights can be arranged on request and land at the private airstrip in the conservancy, roughly a 20-minute drive from camp. 

Visa requirements

Visitors from countries that do not enjoy visa-free entry to Kenya will need to apply for an ETA (Electronic Travel Authorization) in advance on Kenya Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (eTA). The cost is approximately $30 and takes a maximum of 72 hours to process.

As advice can change on a regular basis we recommend you check with the advice issued by your government’s state department or foreign office before you set off on your journey.
