We returned to Ngerende Island Lodge after a break of nearly two years, this was our 5th visit since 2009 and the fact is Ngerende just gets better. We were accompanied by two friends who have never been to Africa before and boy did they have a trip to remember. Never mind the big 5, we saw everything and Stephen... More

This is a remarkable destination. I have stayed at Ngerende 3 times since 2013, most recently in February of 2015. The rooms are luxurious, the staff is friendly and courteous. Their experienced driver took us on wonderful game drives. We saw many lions, cheetah, and other animals. The meals were delicious. They arranged breakfast for us in the wild on... More

My parents took my brother and I as a last family holiday to Ngerende In The Wild for 3 nights and 4 days and it was by far the best holiday I have ever had. You could not fault anything from the moment we were met at the airstrip to the moment the plane took off. You are treated like... More

We spent three fabulous days at Ngerende Island Lodge. From the moment we arrived until our departure, we were treated like royalty. The staff was attentive to our comfort, safety, food selections and ever enthusiastic about our safari experience. VERY knowledgable guide and safe driver accompanied us on each outing. Can't wait till we have an opportunity to return!

When information of our trip to the Maasai Mara came in, we were all excited not because of the accommodation, but by the mere fact that we were finally going to the Mara, this alone was awesome. Little did we know what awaited us on arrival at Ngerende Airstrip. The reception from the airport was superb, the two guys who... More

We stayed at Ngerende with our 2 daughters and we can honestly say that it was our best vacation. Everything was organized for us based on our preferences and we were treated like royalty. The staff was so accommodating and took all of our needs in to consideration (even allergies we had to be careful with). We went on some... More

My husband and I stayed at the Ngerende Island lodge after our wedding for our mini honeymoon. It was the must wonderful experience, with every detail amazing, from the food, to the safaris, to the room. On arrival we were greeted by the whole team out at Ngerende with a Masaai dance. Leading us to the lodge, Daniel the waiter... More

Our three night honeymoon stay at Ngerende Island Lodge was a fantastic and incredible experience, exceeding all our expectations. The facilities are very comfortable, the Safari drives well planned and diverse, but most importantly, the Maasai, staff very friendly, courteous and knowledgeable, making the stay also a very interesting and fascinating cultural experience. Our game drives with Makala were exceptional.... More

We stayed in the sister property Ngerende in the Wild, a few kilometers away from Island Lodge. VERY luxe, only two safari tents and a main tent which had the bar, restaurant and veranda. Our tent was enormous, with a fireplace lit nightly, plunge pool, huge veranda and European soaking bathtub with a view I will never forget. The service... More
