Located in a secluded forest just inside the boundary of the Masai Mara Reserve is the1904 Safari Camp. The 1904 Safari Camp lets you enjoy the heart of wild Africa in the style of travelers in the Edwardian Era: a time that celebrated superb attention to detail, understated luxury, and Romance as a destination. We feel that the 1904 Safari Camp is simply the finest way to experience Kenya’s wilderness areas.
While staying true to its origins as a classic East African camp, the 1904 Safari Camp provides the superb service of a fine boutique hotel - your laundry done every day by your personal valet, your shoes brushed and cleaned every night, your private tent cleaned and beds made every morning while you are out on your game drives, and many spontaneous kindnesses. Guests often comment that getting to know the camp’s friendly and professional staff was one of the unexpected pleasures of their safari.
Each of our roomy vintage-style tents is insect-proof, and has large windows hung with heavy curtains easily opened to enjoy the pure air of Africa, or closed for complete privacy. A curtained doorway leads from your sleeping area to a well-lighted dressing room, furnished with campaign washbasin and chair, mirrors, and a vintage steamer trunk wardrobe for your clothes. Two adjoining curtained compartments contain an old-fashioned bucket shower in one section, and a modern flush loo in the other. Our specialty is bringing all the personal touches of a fine hotel to the heart of wild Africa.
