Elewana Sand River had a number of major improvements done during 2018 and we are delighted to unveil the stunning new look. Elewana Collection has been working with The Landscape Studio to sculpt and mould the ground in and around Elewana Sand River to create a beautiful and vibrant change to this property.
The Landscape Studio is an internationally recognised landscape architecture and design firm based in Nairobi. They strongly believe that there is beauty in simplicity. That lucid, soft gestures can provide elegant and timeless spaces. That these spaces can host nurturing experiences and build lasting memories.
The main area at Elewana Sand River has undergone extensive changes with a new entrance and beautiful pathways that meander between tents using a combination of grey and red Mara Stone, which enhance the visual effect and compliment the surrounding natural area of the Masai Mara. Further to the striking effect of the stone, various indigenous plants have been incorporated into the design including several grasses, Rose Natal Grass, Yellow Thatching Grass and Common Thatching Grass and a variety of trees and shrubs such as Hillii Flash and Bushman Poison.
The swimming pool that was centrally located was removed and a stunning infinity pool has been built near the banks of the Sand River, which is perfect for relaxing and reading your favourite book on the sunbeds during the heat of the day with a refreshing dip in the pool to cool off from time to time.
The luxury safari tents have new decking and the shade netting above the flysheet has been upgraded for better insulation and the colour now blends in with the surrounding environment. The stylish interior remains the same and the ensuite bathrooms still have the lavish freestanding Victorian style bath but guests can now choose whether to enjoy a leisurely bath or venture out for a rain shower ‘under the stars’, which is adjacent to the bathroom on the deck.
A new fleet of custom built 4x4 vehicles will be replacing the current fleet at Elewana Sand River in the coming months, driven by our dedicated team of professional Elewana guides that will enrich the high standard of comfort that guests can experience at one of the Masai Mara’s premier camps.
The refurbishments are now finished and we look forward to hosting you in the near future. Have a sneak peek at some of the changes….
