What to do at Royal Mara Safari Lodge

The Masai Mara offers an exclusive and authentic wildlife safari experience, with exciting game drives, night game drives, cultural experiences, birding, hot air balloon flights and walking safaris.

Activities on Offer

Game drives

Witness the spectacular Big Five from the comfort of a specialized safari vehicle during a Kenya safari. Wildlife sightings include lions, cheetahs and leopards. These game drives are conducted by expert, certified guides, whose knowledge and passion for the bush is amazing. Enjoy rewarding game viewing opportunities, especially during the Great Wildebeest Migration, and sip refreshing sundowners while watching the sun set dramatically over the African savannah.

Night game drives

Experience the thrill of the bush after the sun goes down during an exciting night game drive. This is a time when predators are most active, so you are almost guaranteed excellent game sightings. Watch the nocturnal world of the reserve come alive, hear lions roar in the distance, listen to the sound of an owl in search of their nightly snack, or hear the eerie giggle of the hyena as it lies in wait.

Walking safaris

Bring your walking shoes and enjoy an informative walking safari during your Kenya vacation. Seeing big game on foot will probably be one of the most exhilarating experiences you will ever have. These walking safaris are conducted in rich wildlife areas with professional and armed guards.


For bird lovers, this area is home to a wonderfully prolific birdlife. The marsh and lagoon areas attract a wide variety of wildfowl and raptor birds. Bird safaris on foot or by vehicle can be arranged for the birding enthusiast. Hot air balloon flights

Discover the Masai Mara in a unique and completely memorable way, from the air in an optional hot air balloon safari. Glide across the breathtaking African skies while enjoying sightings of wildlife grazing in the area. You enjoy an hour long flight over the Mara before returning for a delightful champagne breakfast and game drive back to the camp.

Cultural excursions

For those in the mood for a cultural experience during a Kenya vacation, meet the local Maasai community and learn more about their fascinating culture, way of life and traditions. Visit the local school and meet pioneer teachers, struggling to bring education to this remote area.


A Royal Mara, every meal is a grand affair. Whether you want to enjoy breakfast near the hippo pool, barbecue lunches under the shade of a majestic tree, or a private and intimate dinner in the dining area, Royal Mara will take care of your needs. Guests also have the option of enjoying fine dining under the starlit African sky, or a delicious and sociable feast in a warm fire lit secluded bush boma.
