Game Drives

We believe the way to get the most out of your time is that everyone is furnished with their exclusive vehicle, and private spotter and guide

Balloon Safaris

Balloon flights are available daily in Maasai Mara and take off from designated sites where the disturbance to animals is kept to a minimum. Your safari vehicle drops you off at the take-off site and picks you up from your landing site. The flight is followed by a champagne breakfast “in the bush”, with a well-laid-out seating arrangement and waiters on hand, to give you a fitting finale to your memorable flight in the wild.

Game Guided Walks

Offering a refreshingly alternative view of the wilderness, a guided nature walk promises panoramic vistas, gentle exercise, and a fascinating insight into the world of African trees, flowers, insects, reptiles, birds, and animals. It also offers the ultimate contrast to the game drive.

Maasai Village Visit

A visit to a Maasai village is almost inevitable when travelling to the Maasai Mara. The Maasai (or Masai) are mostly known for the colourful garments and jewellery they wear, their warriors and high jumps, which continue to fascinate tourists.

Expert Review of Ashnil Samburu Camp


The tents are very spacious with indoor and outdoor seating areas and nice shower room. The location on the river is superb. We had elephants coming right up to the fence a few feet from our tent, and giraffes strolling past. Every member of staff was exceptionally friendly and they seemed so pleased that we had booked for 5 nights. The restaurant was a la carte service and we were also treated to a bush dinner on our last night. All the food was excellent.. The camp is slightly quirky as the generators are off between 10-noon and 4-6 in the afternoon.
