David Livingstone Safari Resort sits on the banks of a broad bend in the Mara River with sweeping views over waters inhabited by large pods of hippo.
The indigenous forests around the lodge are home to elephant and buffalo, while the plains are frequented by all the big cats and large herds of antelope, zebra, giraffe and other plains species. The lodge's own airstrip is a 45 minute flight from Nairobi, or a two hour flight from Mombasa.
David Livingstone Safari Resort offers 78 en suite rooms, all with beautiful views over the river and the forest beyond. Most of the rooms are located in inmate cottage-style buildings, with several interlinking rooms. There are also two spacious family rooms in the double-storey block for those seeking a bit more space and luxury.
The public areas of David Livingstone Safari Resort all look out over the river, with its lively theatre of hippos and crocodiles and are shaded by acacia trees alive with nest-building houses a charming river-facing bar and a broad terrace, where breakfast and lunch are served when the weather is fine.
On the edge of the lodge's grounds, an inmate two-storey thatched house offers a unique venue for small conferences, workshops and functions. The lodge has a secluded swimming pool set in a pretty walled garden.
