The owners are rethinking every aspect of the safari experience so guests can enjoy a unique holiday which is truly eco friendly, sustainable and community focused. Emboo River is going back to nature, but that does not mean going back to basics. By applying tech and innovation, it has created a Closed Loop System whereby its operations rely on local, renewable and natural resources. The Closed Loop System includes amongst others, water management where 100% of water is filtered by local plants and reused, farm to fork meals from an organic shamba and full solar power. A highlight: Emboo River has the first and only electric safari vehicles in the Maasai Mara! The vehicles are silent, have no exhaust fumes and allow you to feel one with nature during full day game drives.
Eagle View Safari Camp
Eagle view is located on an escarpment with sweeping views over the Koiyaki Plains, a natural salt lick and watering hole. With this modern eco-camp, you are invited to gaze towards the future of sustainable tourism. Their vision is to blend the best of ecological architecture with state-of-the-art minimalist design to compliment the overwhelming natural surroundings. As a highly acclaimed conservancy model for wildlife and nature conservation management, in 2013, it was named one of the top 25 eco-lodges in the world by National Geographic.
IL Ngwesi Eco-lodge
Designed by Simon du Fresne and constructed entirely out of local materials, six spacious rooms accommodate two to four people. Each one offers a slightly different experience, being either tucked away with views up the valley, adjoined to another by rope bridge for families, or overlooking the water hole. All are designed in an ‘open to the bush’ style with opportunities for viewing wildlife, and two have extended verandas for visitors who wish to sleep under the stars in large four poster star beds.
