Revel in the tranquility and endless wilderness at one of Kenya’s most elegant off-grid safari camps.

Located in the majestic Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, Emboo River offers a slice of heaven amidst the wilderness. Home to the Great Migrations and operating in harmony with nature, Emboo River takes inspiration for everything it does from the Maasai saying “Mataramat enkop pee eramat iyook”, meaning “If you take care of Nature, Nature will take care of you”.

 

As a steward and preserver of Maasai traditions and lands, Emboo River places sustainability, nature and wildlife above all else. Operating entirely on solar power and with a fleet of solely electric safari vehicles, Emboo River is pioneering unique safari experiences that don’t emit disturbing engine noises and are wholly respectful of the wilderness and wildlife that represent the Maasai Mara’s life force.
