We were thrilled with our three night stay at the Ashnil Mara. The permanent tents are luxury level (ours had a view of the Mara river with its hippos and crocs) and the restaurant/lounge are lovely. An elephant visited on the outside of the security fence and we had banded mongooses, a family of olive baboons and bushbuck inside the... More

Our first experience of Africa was at Ashnil and there is much to commend it. The depth of knowledge and expertise of Kerore, our driver and guide would be difficult to improve on and the constant warmth and charm of all staff made the experience a pleasant one. Ashnil is good value for the Mara and the accommodation is high... More

Stopped at Ashnil while in transit in the Mara for a drink. Very welcoming staff from the gaurd at the gate, keeping the wild animals out to the bar man that serves you a cool refreshing drink of your choice. Lovely view of the Mara river where we saw numeours hippos and a couple of crocodiles right from the bonfire... More

What a way to stay on safari makes it feel different with the tent but you have all of the comforts of home. Great wildlife seen on our safaris we saw it all. The pool was nice and lots of good food and excellent service from all of the staff we dealt with. Lots of noisy hipps outside your door... More

The staff was so kind, helpful and caring in making sure that our stay was an excellent one. We enjoyed being so close to the Masai Mara park where we were very fortunate to see a total of 37 lions. The food was delicious at this property and the breakfast had so many choices and the tastiest fruit. The tent... More

Stayed here for a two day trip to the Masai Mara. Highlights of our stay, apart from the fantastic sights of the Masai Mara, were the bush breakfast, complete with champagne,and the friendly staff. The lodge is wonderfully located along the river bank with a resident pod of hippos in full view from the main lounge. We had the garden... More

Our experience here was second to none!! The check in staff were warm and welcoming and very efficient. We were shown to our rooms promptly, which were spacious, clean and luxury! It was difficult to think there was all this in the middle of the masaai mara! The showers were fantastic, clean and very hot - just what you needed... More
