Spa treatments
In a more secluded spot a short walk from the Main Tent is our spa treatment room offering eco-friendly treatments using the Africology range of products which are made from 100% essential oils and natural plant extracts.

Visas and immigration
Virtually all visitors to Kenya will need a visa to enter the country however this can be obtained on arrival at the airport on payment of a cash sum, currently US$50. We recommend carrying at least this amount per person travelling plus a few extra American dollars for emergencies.
Visitors are also required to have at least two blank pages in their passport which must be valid for 6 months beyond your expected departure date from Kenya. As advice can change on a regular basis we recommend you check with the guidance issued by your government’s State Department or Foreign Office before you set off on your journey.

When is the best time to visit?
For game viewing the Olare Motorogi Conservancy has abundant wildlife year round, and Kenya’s position straddling the equator means there isn’t a huge amount of variation in temperature throughout the year. You can expect average highs of about 30°C/86°F in the months from December to March with somewhat cooler temperatures from July to September during the height of the migration. Due to its elevation temperatures in the evening do drop to around 15°C/59°F however it rarely gets much colder than this.

Exclusive Use
You can hire Mahali Mzuri exclusively for anniversary celebrations, birthdays or any type of gathering where you might like the place to yourselves! Exclusive use of Mahali Mzuri is quoted per night for use of all 12 tents and facilities. Exclusive use rates usually apply when booking seven or more tents.
