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 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...

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

I did have the go to the desk to ask for quiet at a neighboring cabin. They accommodated me and the rest of the night was quiet and I had a comfortable sleep.... More

To get to this hotel which is outside the game reserve it take an hour from the game reserve main gate. The so call tents need to be refurnish. The door did not fit properly, the bathroom was very poor and needed to be upgraded. The food at this game lodge was very average and poor selection. We stayed in... More

When you are on a safari-the hotel is a sideshow. This place is just that - pleasant but nothing exceptional. Staff did not appear very competent or experienced. The tent was good and furnishings were ok. Food was a let down, poor choice and not of a high quality. But if you are looking for Indian vegetarian food then this... More
