Spirit of the Masai Mara

Family Friendly Activities

Nature is the perfect playground for children and a mini walk around the lodge offers an exciting opportunity to learn about the smaller creatures that inhabit the area, such as the ‘small five’. Identify beetle tracks, find out which birds make each sound, how to make a toothbrush from a particular shrub and so much more. Kids can explore an exhilarating and fascinating new world with our expert Maasai guides.

Take a refreshing dip then relax on our sunbeds and watch the never ending theatre of nature unfold, as you gaze out over the stunning Siana Conservancy.

Go on a culinary safari, enjoy the creations of our chef, blending Kenyan and continental cuisine to perfection and experience the famous Kenyan hospitality at Spirit of the Masai Mara. Our a la carte menus and internationally trained chefs ensure an unforgettable fine dining experience. Enjoy a bush dinner with a specially designed menu and fine wines under the starlit sky or for a more intimate experience, dine in the privacy of your suite.

Special meal requests can be sent to us prior to arrival so arrangements can be made accordingly. We are a family friendly lodge and cater to all ages, offering a kids menu with a selection of dishes and earlier meal times can be arranged.

Your little ones can enjoy a camping experience that is fun and safe. In your suite, children will discover a ready-pitched tent, with a mattress, blankets and pillows, equipped with the camping essentials such as a battery-operated campfire light. The set-up is great for instilling a sense of adventure while encouraging creativity and imagination. It is just like regular camping, without having to brave the elements of the outdoors! *Please request upon booking for children up to the age of 12 years.

Enjoy a game of badminton on the lawn in front of the lodge. You can choose to play singles, doubles or a team of more to add a twist of fun. Spectators may include a variety of wildlife, as you battle it out to be crowned winner of this fun racquet sport.

Children can have loads of fun on our mini zip line, which runs approximately 50 meters from the top to the bottom of our lawn! Listen to the squeals of delight as they zoom from one end to the other then do it all over again!

Manyatta building is a great way for children to immerse themselves in the Maasai culture and learn how a traditional boma is made, starting with gathering the soft sticks that are intertwined to create the structure. Once this has been done, it’s time to get messy and mix the mud, using soil, grass and water, which all kids love doing! The stick structure is then covered with several layers of mud and then left to dry in the sun. The roof is last and can be made from almost anything including sticks, reeds, tin or anything that will lay flat. A fun, engaging and educational activity for all ages!

When the wind is blowing through the valley, it’s the perfect place for kids to release the colourful kites into the air and let them flutter high above the acacia trees. Watch them soar then twist and swirl, as they maneuver the kites high above. There’s no better fun!

Enjoy a selection of teas or your hot beverage of choice, with a scrumptious spread of cakes and biscuits while gazing out over the breathtaking landscape of Siana Conservancy.

As you step off the plane, our expert Maasai guides are there to welcome you with a big smile. You will be escorted to our Spirit of the Masai Mara 4x4 safari vehicles, where you will be given a refreshing drink before being transferred to the lodge.
