We spent a weekend at Ngerende Island Lodge-it was an amazing safari and lodging experience. But much too short…we arrived in the middle of Friday afternoon, and were immediately welcomed with the traditional Maasai dance party. Once the staff was introduced, our lovely butler, Ann, showed us to our lovely room overlooking the river, where the hippos were in abundance... More

We spent 4 nights in Lakeview, in the Mara National Reserve and had the most wonderful time. The staff was extremely welcoming, with Evans catering to our every need, and the guides Stephen and Simon were very impressive and knowledgable. The camp itself is very luxurious as you'd expect and very private, with only 2 Lakeview suites. Highlights (aside from... More

My first visit to the Masai Mara couldn’t have been as memorable if I hadn’t stayed at The Ngerende in the wild (river side) lodge. The lodge takes personalised care to another level. My husband and I stayed at the Ngerende in the wild camp for 3 nights and each of those days was well spent spotting game, eating delicious... More

This is a hotel that takes great measures to give the guests an unforgettable safari experience. It is an exclusive establishment with a private airstrip only 5 minutes away. The whole crew would come to greet you and introduce themselves one by one (cook, waiters, house cleaners, receptionist, etc). The idea of putting us at different places in and around... More

This was our second visit to Ngerende. We loved our first visit and were pleased to see that they have maintained and actually improved the experience. We were accompanied by two other couples. Both are already planning their next visit. The resort is very intimate with only seven ultra-luxury 5 star "tent" accommodations. The rooms are beautifully appointed with fireplaces.... More

Just back from our African adventure which included a 3 night stay at Ngerende Island Lodge. We can honestly say that everything during our stay was a 5 star plus rating. From the food to the accommodation, to the outstanding service. Chef James, a true connoisseur, tailored all our meals to meet our needs and tastes… nothing was ever too... More

My family had an unforgetable first time safari experience and I credit it all that to the great staff of Ngerende Island lodge. Breakfasts and dinners at dining room were refreshing in the morning and yet intimate at night. Lunches at the pool lounge overlooking the river filled with rhinos were just stunning. Our last dinner of African BBQ meat... More

I've read all the other excellent reviews and not much more I can add. I have stayed in a lot of safari lodges and can confidently confirm that Ngerende Island Lodge is oustanding. At first when I arrived I wasn;t sure about the modern decor style and edgy block furniture, but then I realised it was actually really refreshing, something... More

It was our first trip to a game reserve with the children. From the moment we arrived luxury hospitality was upon us. From the amazing food prepared three times a day by Chef Wellington to Jacob making sure that all our needs are met to Daniel and Jonah spending hours introducing us to the beautiful animals of the Masaai Mara....

Everything about our experience in Ngerende was out of this world, it was definitely the climax of our Honeymoon. What makes this place so remarkable are the people who give their very best to make your stay the most comfortable and enjoyable, to the point where you actually end up having to say goodbye to a bunch of friends when...
