We very much enjoyed our stay at Mara Leisure Camp. It has an amazing setting in a quiet wooded area, close to the edge of the river and the national park. We stayed in a jumbo tent and absolutely loved it. It was gorgeously decorated, very clean and well-equipped. Big, comfortable bed with good quality mosquito net. Lovely shower with... More

This was a welcome arrival after a day of travel. The tented cabins were amazing. When unzipping our front flap was greeted by a huge queen sized bed draped in nets with beautiful timber floors surrounding the whole area with a desk in one corner, lots of storage for bags, a couple of comfortable chairs and a huge bathroom with...

My girlfriend and I stayed at Mara Leisure Camp for two nights. After being in Kenya for a week and staying at nice, romantic places, Mara Leisure Camp was quite disappointing. It is an old, almost tired looking camp. The rooms are more like hotel rooms surrounded by a tent. The rooms are quite stale and dusty. The bathrooms in... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while on a safari. The luxury tents were lovely, clean, and modern. The food selection was inclusive buffet style (totally sufficient for vegans), with optional drink menus (reasonably wine prices). The staff seemed to hover a bit, and either guards or staff members (not clear) would appear anytime we opened our... More

What a lovely atmosphere with calmness and serenity. The best thing is the well appointed camp style tents, awesome food and excellent hospitality. A lovely welcome drink, superb food with a lot of choices for vegetarians, a lovely swimming pool and travel friendly hosts.

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

I spent over 2 weeks in Kenya and stayed in 7 hotels and this one is the best one, probably the best I've ever stayed anywhere :) If you going to Masai Mara stay at this one you wont regret it. 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
