What you need to know:

  • The Club has all the amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel and staff as attentive as I have experienced anywhere in the world. 
  • It’s the private deck that makes the Club stand out – or rather enables you to sit out and experience the magic of the river.

I was reading myself to sleep, when three times the lion roared. Loud. Defiant. Challenging. My wife, Lut, and I were in a tent of the Fairmont Mara Safari Club on the bank of the Mara River, and I had been thinking of the challenge our son, Jan, would be facing in the morning, as he pitted himself against the 50 kilometres of the UltraMARAthon to be run over three of the Mara’s conservancies.
