Tycoon, Richard Branson, of Virgin Galactic, has acquired one more symbol of honor after his Kenyan hotel was voted the best around the world.
A report by Travel + Leisure Magazine, a global travel publication, noted that larger numbers of its readers ranked the hotel, Mahali Mzuri Safari Camp, situated in Masai Mara Game Reserve, as the world’s number one.
The magazine uncovered that Branson was inspired to set up the hotel trying to assist in the wildlife conservation plan as well as impact lives of the locals.
The mazuri hotel has 12 all around tents that can hold 2 visitors each, bringing to a total of 24 visitors at any given time.
Inside each tent, visitors are treated to ensuite private bath, comfortable bedding , calfskin furniture for relaxing, fabulous clawfoot splashing tubs, and expansive windows and entryways.
Each tent has an enormous deck that offers views on the rambling Savanah grassland.
“Due to Mahali Mzuri’s excellent location on the Kenyan plains, you’ll have a front-row seat, not just to the annual great migration, but also to the abundant game you can see all year round.
“Our super stylish tented suites make for the perfect retreat during your stay. We can cater for up to 24 guests in the camp at any one time, so you are guaranteed peace and quiet, as well as excellent customer service at all times,” reads a description of the hotel on its site.
A night at the lodging ranges between Ksh190,000 for one person, and Ksh330,000 for two relying upon the season.
The hotel prides itself in providing a variety of services with the best being game drives.
“A number of lion pride territories meet in the Olare Motorogi Conservancy, which can make for some interesting encounters as the different groups battle for dominance.”
“The area is also home to roughly 150,000 Loita wildebeest that don’t make the annual migration south and seem content to ‘loiter’ all year round! Of course, one of the biggest draws to the area is the annual ‘Great Migration’, which sees up to one million wildebeest plus hundreds of thousands of zebra, gazelles, and other game undertake a journey of roughly 1,600km through Tanzania and Kenya,” continued the statement.
Branson made a fruitful trip to the space through his company Virgin Galactic.
