The hotel is located on the Mara river itself and pretty close to the crossing points, which is very convenient as you were literally in the middle of the action. The tents were spaciously located and very very comfortable and nice. The staff and service was excellent and very obliging. The only fault, if you can call it that, is... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we landed up at Ashnil Mara. It was late in the evening and we were tired after the drive. We were shown to our charming tent with a great outdoor seating area with a view of the river. The food and service were great and we wanted to stay there longer! The bar and restaurant... More

The entrance to the camp is hidden between closely knit bushed, centrally located within the nature park Masai Mara. The camp overlooks the Mara River, where you can frequently see crocodiles and hippos in the water. During lunch and dinner, we had a table at the edge, giving us the chance to do some animal spotting whilst eating. The buffet... More

We had two lovely nights at Asnhil Mara where we were able to listen to the hippos snorting in the river during breakfast. The camp is well located and we saw a huge variety of animals including the Big 5 during our two night stay. Although on our first night we were placed in tent close to the generator which... More

We stopped here for 2 nights to finish our Safari adventure. The staff were really friendly and polite; and they gave us a traditional Swahili Chorus and a cake on our last night. The location was brilliant, together with the camp accommodation and location which gave us a good base to get out into the countryside

The Ashnil Mara camp was well located on the Mara river with noisy and amorous hippos adding to the atmosphere. We were a party of six --grandparents, parents and grandchildren on a safari adventure and the game drives were superb- we saw four of the big five, wildebeest crossing,hot air balloon flights and even a black mamba. The staff tried... More

The location is very good as you are on the river and game drives do not take a long time to reach the game as you do in some other camps. Food variety at the included buffet was very good and hot foods were kept hot. Staff were helpful. This was the only lodge on our trip that did not... More

We stayed here for 5 nights recently specifically to witness the wildebeest migration. Everything was just perfect, location, wildlife, cuisine, ambience, staff and the accommodation. We managed to see the Big 5 and we couldn't fault a thing. At dinner on our last night we were serenaded with a cake and an assortment of musical instruments (pots/pans etc) exquisitely executed...
