Maasai Mara | Siana Springs Tented Camp






Welcome to Siana Springs Tented Camp!

General Manager ' Welcome Message'

Siana Springs in the local Maasai language means "the plentiful springs".

. It is truly an area of abundance in flora, fauna and cultural attributes. It epitomizes the best in diversity in all aspects as the species richness and natural history making the Camp an ideal eco-lodge from where you can partake to the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle - the wildebeest migration.

There are also other mammalian species, enthralling bird species and the distinctive Maasai Mara ecosystem. The Camp has a rich history dating back to 1920, when the first Game Warden selected its current site for his Camp. The Camp is now located on a Wildlife Conservancy whose ownership was bequeathed to the local community in the late 1970s. Siana Springs Tented Camp is owned and managed by Oltukai Mara Limited..

Reviews from Trip Advisor

Our group of 4 adults and 2 children stayed at Siana Springs for 2 nights in the week 17 April 2017. This is my 7th time in this establishment and I always stay there when in Masai Mara. We have tried other places inside the park but they are no match for the cosy, natural and relaxing ambience you will enjoy at Siana Springs. The location is great - exactly becasue it's outside the park - you avoid the crowds of matatus and SUVs in the camps and hotels, you also see a lot of wildwife on the way to/from the camp - elephant, monkey, tik-tik, zebra, giraffe, to name a few. Then the camp - warm and family-like greetings and support (much more that service) by all staff, we felt so good and at home! There is a unique garden and an open fireplace with tree trunks you can sit on around it, and a guitar man who plays and sings African songs or whatever you want :-) - imagine this in a quiet starry evening! Surroundings - the best hotel/camp garden I have been to, tall, impressive mature trees (rose wood, bamboo) where you can spot colobus monkeys jumping from one branch to another. The food - delicious, by a multi-star chef I'd say, we were even asked what dish we wanted for the last dinner we had there! And you can exchange some recipes with the chef who would personally come over to your table to say hi. The staff - warm and caring, truly treating the guests not as tourists but as friends who will want to come back. Tents - spacious, super clean, cosy and comfy. I particularly enjoy the hot water bag tucked in the bed before sleep time. And there is massage you can book just 1-2 hours earlier (while on a safari I asked the guide to call the camp and that was all it took) - one of the best I've ever had.

So, if you really want to get up close and personal with Mara, its people and the area, go for Siana Springs.

Sarah tells it all for a two days experience. We hosted her on September 2017

Siana Springs is a great camp and the overall nature makes it all unique. The staff were very friendly and helpful for the whole stay. The tents were very clean and perfect for getting a real feel of being in Africa on safari! The camp site is beautiful too; bush bucks roaming around outside, Columbus monkeys chattering above the tents and vervet monkeys playing on the lawns in front of the tents. The food was great and the view from the 'restaurant' was lovely. If you have kids, they seemed to enjoy the activities and attentions of the Masai etc who are part of the camp staff. They have a swimming pool too and our kids enjoyed swimming in the evenings after a long day safari. By the way, there seem to be genuine mutually beneficial links with the local people who are Masai.

Yes it is a 15 minutes drive to the Mara Sekenani gate but an interesting drive at that. A little Bumpy road too but it adds to the ambiance! We stayed 2 nights which was a good time to see so many animals; all the big 5 including a leopard! On the second day we left with packed picnic lunches so that we could spend the whole day in the park. Overall, It was a very unique experience.

David Shares his experience at our camp

I never knew that camping in the wilderness, will give me a luxurious and an amazing experience; unlike traditional camping where you get to stay in the backwoods like a caveman.

my experience in siana springs maasai Mara was awesome. it gave us a taste of naked wilderness. the springs, fish ponds and swamps all over the camp, variety of animals like velvet monkeys, Columbus monkeys, mongoose, bush tops ,and a number of birds, what else can one ask for? The staff are super qualified as they gave us first class services. the food was terrific!! imagine getting your delicacy in the bush. the rooms were very neat and tidy with warm water.i couldn't imagine a tent with a shower, this was nice. WiFi in the bush, we could video chat and Skype with friends. we saw all the big five , and because we were the luckiest, we saw a kill, not one but multiples. it was fun i tell you. how else will you experience the jungle life if you did not meet bumpy roads and you were not rained on. my friends and i had to walk on the lawns and experience the tropical showers after a full day game drive. i will come back again.. Siana springs tented camp maasai Mara should be on my bucket list..
