Wonderful decor within the building. A great atmosphere - calm, peaceful, very much at one with the natural surroundings. The service was also wonderful. My sister and her fiance... More

I don't normally post reviews but this experience was such a magical so I really wanted to share this with fellow travelers. Our trip to the Masai Mara was arranged by Affable Tours http://www.affabletours.com/ who were truly excellent. Their in depth knowledge of the Mara and the various game lodges meant that our adventure was personalised to our particular needs... More

Visited Amani Mara in March 2012. We LOVED our time there and were already planning to come back even before we left. The staff and owner are very attentive and friendly. It is a small lodge, so we felt very personalized attention. We had an opportunity to go on a Masai-guided nature walk, go to a Masai village, had a... More

Lodging: comfortable beds and pillow :), spacious room, very clean, the balcony with a perfect safari view 2. Location and ambiance: situated in a quiet area and not too far from all the animals... In fact, an elephant... More

I spent almost a month with the family that own and operate this lodge. This place is a labour of love. The family is well respected in the community, passionate about conservation and has a wealth of knowledge about the local eco-system, culture and tradition. Unlike places where you are just another guest, the Amani Mara ensures you are welcomed... More

One of the most beautiful and peaceful places i have been to. The lodge is really appropriately named. Amani means 'Peace' in Swahili and i couldn't ask for more than i got at Amani Mara. The management and staff were so friendly, i was totally comfortable and at home. My family loved the break and i look forward to another... More

You really have to experience it to believe how truely special Amani Mara is! From the moment we arrived we were overwhelmed not only by the warm welcome from the friendly staff but by the stunning eco friendly lodge that looks out over the vast mara and river full of hippos, crocodiles and stunning birds. The highlight for me had... More

How lucky we were! The lodge we orginally booked had some problems and by coincidence we ended up in the Amani Mara Lodge. Beautifull place and very friendly staff. The Masai guides were very skilfull and knowlegdable. Excellent food. Nature at your doorstep!
