Facility Notes Sala’s Camp is located within Masai Mara National Reserve close to the confluence of the Sand and Keekorok Rivers. It was opened in 2006 operated by The Safari Collection. It has nine (9) guest tents with a bed capacity of 18 guests and a total work force of 32 employees for its operations.
The facility is architecturally designed to have low environmental impact. The guest tents are made of canvas raised on sand and gravel. The staff quarters are designed of grey, green and beige fly-tents pitched on the ground. Low impact activities including nature walks, bird watching and village visits are offered.
The Maasai Mara National Reserve covers approximately 1,510 km2 under the management of Narok County. The Reserve is located in the northern portion of the Mara Serengeti eco-system, which covers 25,000 km2 straddling Tanzania and Kenya. Serengeti Park borders the Reserve to the south, Siria (or Oloololo) Escarpment in the west and community-owned conservancies to the North and East of the reserve. The Reserve has about 95 species of mammals and 570 species of birds recorded. It is famous for hosting the wildebeest migration, which is dubbed as the ‘8th Wonder of the World’. The migration occurs from the months of July to September. It involves wildebeests, Thomson’s gazelles, Topi, elands, and zebras. These migrants are followed along their annual, circular route by predators, most notably lions and hyenas. Numerous other antelopes can be found, including Thomson’s and Grant’s gazelles, impalas, duikers and Coke’s hartebeest. The Mara is also home to the “Big Five” (lion, leopard, African elephant, African buffalo, and Black Rhinoceros). The plains are also home to the distinctive Masai giraffe.
Energy management Sala’s camp is primarily run on solar power. The camp has three solar water heaters.
