Why Kelley J Jones chose Kenya

We leased the land from the local Masai community and wanted to build our dream camp home- somewhere in between a tent camp and a house. We have maintained the integrity of local building, using local materials and letting guests enjoy a spectacular view by using transparent tent netting- amazing sunrises and sunsets whether you are on the terraces or tucked away in the houses.

What makes this cabin unique

Located only 3 Km from the Sekanani Masai Mara game park entrance. Amazing sunsets and fully equipped kitchen if you want to self-cater.

The first VRBO review

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of five who stayed at the Mama Safi for three nights in May. The houses are well desgned, allowing us to prepare meals and eat outdoors, with just a roof over us in case it did rain. Inside, the houses were also open, with large screens that allowed breezes to refresh and view to the hillside. The beds were very comfortable and the houses were kept very clean,. We did have loss of WiFi several times (something also experienced in hoteeels) and loss of electric power one time, which means that one has to be careful about what foods are stored in the refrigerators. Power and WiFi were restored inreasonably quickly however, and the staff was very attentive. The staff also chased the elephants away at night!

Overall, I recommend highly, noting that these houses just outside the gate offer access to the Masi Mara as well as to points of interest in the "real" community (such as a Masai village). Of course, many would prefer to be waited uponat a luxury camp, but I found staying at Mama Safi to be a very pleasant experience.
