This beautiful and thoughtfully located resort on the banks of the Mara river is an ideal place to relax after the day's game drive .The tents have been done up in such a manner that you get a feel of the jungle and at the same time enjoy modern amenities . The hot water bottles under the covers in the... More

After driving all day through the magnificent Masai Mara veiwing spectacular wildlife, we proceeded down one of hundreds of dirt roads to arrive unexpectedly at the wonderful Ashnil Mara Hotel. Greeted warmly by a group of friendly hotel staff, presented with a cool scented facecloth and a cold glass of juice, we thought we had died and gone to heaven.... More

Went to this camp for the second time last weekend with family and friends and had a great time. The food is good, service is nice and the view of the Mara river is fantastic. They have a great breakfast next to the Hippo pond option for special occasions. All in all a great experience. Would have gotten 5 stars... More

Located by the Grumeti river, the Ashnil Mara camp is a slice of paradise. The luxury tents are very comfortable and the location of the dining area ensures that you always have the company of hippos and even crocodiles and elephants while having a meal. Food is very good as well. What separates Ashnil Mara from other good places is... More

Ashnil Mara is within the shrubs by the river. Secluded location by the river is amazing. Food is great, honestly can't go wrong (including vegetarians). The service is impeccable throughout the lodge. The tented rooms are amazing, though we had a leak in tent no.1. Not really any big issues as it dripped in from an edge. The rooms are... More

The annoying part first: the lodge does not provide a phone number of the reception. All you get on your booking is an office number in Nairobi. Insufficient if you are stucked in a national park after office hours.  We just wanted to make sure we are on the right track as the road conditions were pretty bad and couldn't... More
