Stayed here in February 2021. Very big territory, nice fire zone, swimming pool and of course lodges. Which seems to be campstyle, but in fact comfortable as room in the hotel👍 Nice place inside the Masai Mara park, so it's good to start game drives from here . Would like to thank JT (Julius Tact) Safaris (Julius Nzumbi), who advised us to stay in this hotel during our trip, which his company organized from the beginning till the end. They booked the best room for us and looked after we had the perfect journey. Our guide was Samuel, who organized the best game drives. We were surprised how he can see animals even if they really far away. He always knew when need to make a stop for photoshoot and tell us so many interesting things about animals♥️

We had our stay there at the end of February 2020 before the whole pandemic started. Therefore, unfortunately I can't tell you anything about the current Corona measures. Nonetheless it is a very nice and large camp, in which there is a lot to discover, for example the Chefs Organic Garden or the camp's own lake. The tents are also very clean, very spacious and very stylish. We booked the deluxe tent for our 4 day safari and we were super happy with it. In the evening, the mosquito nets are stretched around the bed and one of the employees also gives you a warm hot water bottle for the night. On top of that, the food is really great too. You get a very large selection of very high quality, fresh and delicious food. You get something for both meat lovers and vegetarians. The best food of our entire Africa vacation. The staff is also super friendly, always have a smile on their faces and take very good care of the well-being of every single guest to make their experience unforgettable. Once for example I missed lunch because I had the wrong time in my head, but when I got to the dining area I still got something. Especially at the breakfast with sparkling wine you could really see the joy of the staff, we were joking and had a good time. Hakuna Matata is very important here, at all times. Since my girlfriend got sick in the meantime (caused by the Malaria pills), I contacted the doctor there, who was able to provide us with the necessary medicine. So health well-being is also taken care of here. We had a really great stay that we will never forget. The next time we come to Kenya, we will definitely be staying here again.

My family and I spent 2 nights at Sarova Mara Lodge! We loved the place and the service. The tent, the surroundings, the restaurant, the bar - we could feel the hospitality everywhere! Special Thanks to Mart in, who really made a difference and made us smile. He was very attentive and very much caring about our young daughter's well being - specal treats for lunch during our game drives.
