Well, this happened to me during my stay at this awesome animal park. Fortunately, I was blessed to discover the African themed Shifaa Spa within the Mara River Safari Lodge.

The Shifaa Spa provides an unforgettable and unique experience. Parked adjacent to the park’s African Savannah habitat, guests can admire rhinos, zebra and wildebeest directly from their massage bed!

Carrying on with the theme of the rustic African ambience of this retreat, I decided to go for one of Shifaa Spa’s signature massages, Soul of Africa. This full body Swedish massage is designed to enhance, relax and restore bodies, Monica instead did the Punguza treatment, a therapeutic warm oil massage to release tension, relaxing and soothing her muscles. We both were exhausted after a day on the safari, but our young masseuses had powerful hands and quickly eased the tension from our limbs, all the while awarding us with astonishing wildlife scenes from the treatment room’s window.

The Shifaa Spa has a small number of rooms for massage and an open space for beauty treatments. Some of their most popular massages are: Hot Stone Therapy, Therapeutic Balinese, Traditional Balinese and Foot Reflexology. Body and beauty treatments include a variety of scrubs and masks using natural ingredients and manicure and pedicure services.
