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

On our return to the Mara we ended up coming back to Ashnil.Mara. The staff are really great. The manager charming the front office staff ready to help, and the dining and bar staff are just great. Sadly Ebola and al-Shabaab have driven tourists away. DO NOT WORRY they are not in the Mara!

We were pleasantly surprised when we landed at the Ashnil Mara late in the evening, after visiting one hotel that was disappointing. We were received by a smiling guard at the gate ,he took us to the reception where we were received warmly and even given a good discount. We were so tired and felt dirty after the long drive...

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
