Spirit of the Masai Mara (SOTMM) is an exclusive 10 suite safari lodge situated on a private conservancy outside of the Maasai Mara. It is a family owned property that began operation in 2015 in cooperation with the local Maasai community, and is now being managed and marketed by Sarova Hotels & Resorts (as of 01APR 2018). Sarova is widely regarded as a leading hospitality brand in Kenya and has been a long-time partner of KAI. I was very excited to have the opportunity to visit this new property in October and see what our partners at Sarova could do with a boutique luxury lodge! I was not disappointed….
It's nearing the end of busy season here at Naibor and the Mara is still teeming with Wildebeest and migration excitement. The herds arrived in the Mara in mid June and there are still hundreds of thousands of them around as a result of recent rain.
