What you need to know:

  • On the river’s edge, a short walk away from the cottages, is a secluded platform — for sunbathing, yoga, or outdoor meals with a view of the salt lick on the opposite bank.
  • We spent much of our afternoons here, and in the chilly evenings we huddled round fires lit for us on the lawn or in the lounge.

Over the past few weeks we’ve been hosting a family from the UK for Easter, and last Sunday’s article documented the first leg of our holiday at the Mara Serena Safari Lodge. For the second leg, we were booked in at the Ol Pejeta Safari Cottages — a relatively new addition to the conservancy’s landscape.
