We came to Ngerende Island Lodge as part of our honeymoon. We were greeted from the airstrip by a driver who led us into the Mara towards this amazing venue. Upon arriving, we were greeted by a local Masai dance and led to the reception for a brief introduction of all of the staff. Given how small the complex is,... More

The best place to be in the Masai Mara.Beautiful five star accommodation.The food was excellent as both of us were vegetarians and it was no problem for the chef. Daniel/Emmanuel were excellent guide and a driver. Would like to thank all the staff who looked after us so well . Would definitely come back.

This was the culmination of our week long trip which we had started at their sister resort Ngerede in the Wild. This place was also amazing and felt untouched by civilization on the one hand, yet comfortable and luxurious on the other. The staff was amazing and kudos to the chef! Definitely going back!

We had visited Ngerende for a 2 night stay last year and loved it so much we made plans to return with our 2 adult kids and their spouses. We spent 5 nights and could have easily stayed longer, we each enjoyed every minute of it. The staff became more like family to us this visit, and we were privileged... More

This property and the Safari guides are spectacular! We were so happy with our guide and vehicle. They were very knowledgable and flexible with our needs. This resort is top notch...we were surprised with lunch in a beautiful shaded area and lunch set up by the pool as well on another day. Another amazing detail is that my 4 year... More

We found Ngerende exceptional in every way. Ann and the staff looked after us with great good humour and friendliness. To have a staff of nine satisfying our every need was, to say the least, beyond our experience. The accommodation was luxurious, the location breathtaking and the food inventive and appealing. Daniel and Jonah gave us wonderfully exciting safari drives... More

I have been to Ngerende in the Wild 4 times now. Prefer River View tents, but Lakeside is also superb. Beautiful accommodation, great staff! Sometimes they overdo it with the service. Best game drives ever with Jonah and Daniel. Your wish is the teams command. Sundowners on the plains, full day drive with picknick, evening around the campfire watching the... More
