My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights during a fortnight stay in Kenya and had a fabulous experience. We were greeted, after a 6 hour drive, by a friendly face and a nice cold glass of juice - very refreshing. The room/tent is a spacious chalet/tent with large en-suite bathroom. We had a lovely four poster bed, crisp... More

We stayed for just one night at the Leisure Camp on 27th June. I must confess that it is a good looking resort - with a very average staff in terms of their skills. Had 2-3 instances of illogical statements made by the staff (without getting into details), however, which when brought to the notice of Mr Himanshu Kumar -... More

Great location, great service, good priced gift shop, so many birds & animals on the grounds, very positive and... More

Ok.... you stay in tents that are larger than most hotel rooms with polished timber floors and very modern bathrooms, we did not have much of a view as there were a lot of trees..which will be a blessing in summer probably The lobby, bar and dinning areas are all really nice with nice lounge chairs to sit on or...

My friends and I stayed here for two nights between Safaris. The staff and the manager were so attentive! The food options are limited but all amazing, all the time. The Masai Mara has provided us with amazing, unforgettable memories (we had a cheeta ON our vehicle!!) But Mara Leisure was an amazing sanctuary to return to every night. I... More

I went to Mara Leisure Camp a few years back. I have to say I had a wonderful time. I traveled there by myself, which is my only regret because you don't have anyone to share the amazing things you see with anyone. the staff was so wonderful and treated me like royalty. one night as I was walking back...

Myself and my husdand stayed here for two nights. We arrived by road at about 1 oclock and were greeted with a hot towel and refreshing drink before being shown to our very spacious tent. We then went back to the restaurant where we met the fabulous jeff who served us our lunch which was more of a 3 course... More

My family and I stayed here for 4 nights whilst enjoying a safari tour of the Masai Mara Reserve. It is located just at one of the entrances to the park, close to a Masai township, a full 5-6 hour drive from Nairobi. The staff were fantastic, could not do enough to help, always smiling and willing to chat. As... More

Quiet, peaceful, well-kept grounds. Stylishly decorated lobby and restaurant. Rooms are large and decorated with local flavor. The bed was hard. The service was excellent. The buffets were delicious. I had a great massage by the in-house masseuse. Wine and beer cheap enough. The place is operated by solar, which is environmentally sound, but no electricity at certain times and... More
