RELAX & PLAY

Emboo River is located in a small forest along a river bend, making it a perfect spot to unwind and feel one with nature.  Wake up to the songs of birds. Read a book under the shade of our ancient fig tree. Meditate to the sound of the river flowing by. 

Do you want to relax even further? Here are some activities which you could enjoy:

  • Emboo River’s natural swimming pool overlooks a part of the Talek river which is popular with animals who want to drink. Our swimming pool is natural, meaning that we do not need chemicals to keep it clean! This allows us to not bring harmful toxins into the Maasai Mara. Instead the swimming pool uses local wetland plants, which were identified in the area together with the Maasai tribe.

    The swimming pool is topped up with fresh water from a well. A solar pump keeps the water in motion and moves the water through a sand filter which removes debris. Next the water passes via a waterfall that adds oxygen to the water. Lastly, the water is filtered by the local wetland plants. These plants are not only great for cleaning the water, they also look beautiful and provide a popular spot for frogs, dragonflies and other small insects.
     

  • Listen to the songs of the birds while you relax in our Spa, which is surrounded by nature. Our Spa treatments are inspired by the unique eco system of the Maasai Mara and use local and organic ingredients.

  • While some might enjoy being disconnected from work emails and daily news, others might prefer to regularly update friends and family back home and share pictures of lions, cheetahs and zebras! Our lounge area has Wi-Fi access.

    • Yoga at the ancient fig treeEmboo River is home to an old and massive fig tree. This fig tree is the highest tree in the area and can be seen from afar. This intimate spot offers the perfect location for a relaxing yoga session during which you feel a spiritual connection to this old fig tree.
    • Unwind and rewild yogaIn the midst of the savannah there is a beautiful spot with flat rocks, which create perfect yoga platforms. Select your spot and watch animals stroll by during this adventurous yoga session. After your session, enjoy breakfast in the bush.
