Well, we have resided in this lodge on 1st of January 2015. Nice accommodation, cosy rooms, very convenient location – only 30 km to Maasai Mara National Park. The cottages are placed right on the high bank of Mara river, so you can behold big hippo family right from view point near the cottages. Especially I would like to point... More

The Hippo view point is well placed the hippos are just right next to the cottages if you wake up early you get to see the massive creatures outside the water. The ambiance is relaxing good food, friendly staff... More

African Safari Club promises when you visit Mara Buffalo camp as part of their safari tours that you'll be seeing animals in the "world famous Mara reserve". Well, don';t be fooled! The world famous Mara National Reserve is 30 km south of Buffalo camp! Instead you'll be driven around the Lemek Koyaki Ranch which is outside the Mara Reserve and... More

Our stay at the Mara Buffalo Camp was amazing. The individual lodges are comfortable, staff are friendly and the food was really nice! Admittedly the showers in the camp are not ideal but I went on safari to see animals and that was my main priority. The camp itself is on the river ....... home to a large family of... More

Terrible organisation. Safaris a joke. Food terrible. Masai Mara was supposed to be the highlight of our holiday but this camp was the low- light!
