KENYA – Pride Inn group of hotels has acquired a new camp, Pride Inn Azure luxury Mara camp, taking a pie of the game reserve whose popularity has risen over time and currently hosts up to 2,700 per day, during the high season.
The camp occupies 25 acres of land and has 16 luxury cottages and 14 luxury tented camps.
Speaking during the official announcement of the acquisition, the Group’s Managing Director Hasnain Noorani said that the camp is also focused on sustainable energy and that it is entirely powered through solar heating.
“We are extremely proud to take over the camp and we look forward to working with leaders, and customers, we are excited to be in Mara, we also look forward to working with all clients and making the experience better for all,” he said.
“One of the best things about the camp is that each of the cottages has luxury indoor showers, bathtubs and each of the tents has outdoor showers, the interior has been carefully selected to ensure Bushfield is maintained and comfort is given to our customers.”
In addition, the camp has conference space as it seeks to focus on meetings, incentive travels, conventions, and exhibitions (MICE) to boost its earnings.
“The faith and optimism we have in this country is unlimited, we have everything under one roof; adventures, pristine beaches, desert safaris, marine life,” Noorani added.
“Another offering within the camp is the Koroga concept which allows guests to cook their own food if interested.”
“We also invite guests to plant trees under their name,” the MD added.
Noorani lauded the Government for improving the country’s infrastructure, singling out the Nairobi expressway, Dongo Kundu bypass, and the Changamwe interchange which he said is going to ease movement within the major cities.
“With the expressway, Nairobi is going to be a MICE hub, it is going to grow and enable the entire country to grow, the Dongo Kundu bypass and change interchange are also going to change the coast allowing accessibility and freedom of movement,” he remarked.
