UP­PING THE GAME

DestinAsian - - UPDATE - –CHRISTI HANG

Sir Richard Bran­son’s sec­ond African sa­fari camp, Ma­hali Mzuri ( 44-208/6000430; ma­hal­imzuri.vir­gin.com; dou­bles from US $590 pernight), has opened in south­east­ern Kenya’s Mo­torogi Con­ser­vancy just in time to wel­come the an­nual Great Mi­gra­tion, when more than a mil­lion wilde­beest and half as many gazelles and ze­bras ven­ture north from Tan­za­nia’s Serengeti to the grass­lands of the Ma­sai Mara Na­tional Re­serve. Much eas­ier to com­pute will be the num­ber of your fel­low guests: Ma­hali Mzuri—which trans­lates as “beau­ti­ful place” in Swahili —ac­com­mo­dates just 24 people at a time, in a dozen plush tents that jut from the bush like terra-cotta-hued space­ships. Be­tween game drives, di­ver­sions in­clude cham­pagne pic­nics, orinka (Ma­sai club) mas­sages, and vis­its to a nearby Ma­sai vil­lage.
