Resting along the meandering Mara River, The David Livingstone Safari Resort, is an oasis of peace and tranquillity in the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle, the Masai Mara Game Reserve. The Resort is an interface between you and the primal spirit of adventure in the Great African wilderness. Located on concessional land on 4 shimmering hippo pools, with a resident population of over 200 hippopotami and several crocodiles, the resort is an ideal base to experience the Masai Mara. The David Livingstone Safari Resort is committed to good guest satisfaction. Our staff ratio is one staff per room ensuring attentive yet unobtrusive personal service. All the 82 rooms are located along the Mara River comfortably furnished with twin or double beds, hot showers and flush toilets and private verandas for lazy afternoons in between game drives. The Main restaurant serves a Champagne Breakfast daily as you watch the hippo play. Lunch and Dinner are also served here. Picnic lunches, Bush Dinners and Barbeques are set up in the middle of the vast African wilderness almost anywhere in the Masai Mara.

Game Drives with our guides who are all members of the Kenya Professional Safari Guides Association. Most of them, Masai who have been born in the Mara with years of Wildlife experience will share their experience and knowledge with you on a 4 wheel drive game drive in our vehicles.

Night Game Drives - A game drive under the starry African night is a must when you visit David Livingstone. After dinner armed with a warm blanket you drive off to witness what happens in the dark African night. Aardvarks, Hippo, African Kangaroo or Spring Hares and Rabbit all come out to feed. Cheetah, Lion and Leopard, Hyena and jackals hunt under the cover of darkness. Enjoy!!

Almost all vegetables, fruit and meat are organic and purchased fresh from small farms around Naivasha and Narok where the fertile volcanic soil of the Rift Valley nurtures them with nutrition and minerals. A full cooked breakfast or a healthy option, a 4-course luncheon and a 6-course dinner with a health option is available daily. Picnic Breakfasts, Bush Lunches and Bush Dinners are also available.
