Went on vacation with friends and had a pretty good time. Saw a lot of animals and the park was really nice. The position of the Serena Mara is perfectly situated with a fantastic view. I will probably return next year.

Pleasantly located on a hill top in Mara. Although far off from the Park gates but booking Serena covers a vast area of sight seeing. The Hotel is at a very good location with lot of scenic beauty and animals coming near your cottage after midnight. It is one of the few Hotels in Mara that has 24x7 Power Supply... More

This lodge offers a whole new experience. The location is magnificent, cannot ask for a better location. Friendly staff, always ready to help. Tour excursions offered are of great value, not forgetting the early morning and late afternoon safaris.

We stayed at Mara Serena Safari Lodge for 2 nights with some friends. Amazing view. Nice pool. Good food (much better than expected). Great service. It exceeded our expectations. I really recommend this place.

One evening, while sitting in my "princess window," a giraffe came by so he could munch on the leaves of the tree right outside of my room. And the baboons would stob by and wait to see if they could break in and quickly steal some sugar. A family of leopard had settled just outside of the camp so there... More

Second time I've stayed here and love it for the location to the Mara River and great views. It is a very large lodge though so lots of people. Love the new foyer and the rooms are still very cute. Like staying with the Flintstones. My 3 boys loved it. Good food and generally good service although I was disappointed... More

We did a long weekend safari and it was the best safari experience I had in the last 2 years. We couldnt believe it was only 48 hours. Everything was smooth- from arrival, dropping at the hotel, the car only for us, the leopard in the sunset, surprise bush breakfast, lions, dinner, scenery. The service and food were excellent.

Its our home away from home when we come back to Mara Triangle each year to see the cats. Let the great staff meet all of your needs and take advantage of all the property offers...including a pool, spa and workout room. A massage after a day in the safari vehicle is absolutely a must...and a value by US standards.... More

The hotel is situated in the Massai Mara park. Very convinient on the savanna. The rooms are nice, clean, modern and have a nice (indoor) balcony. The lobby is also nice and spacy. Lots of couches and seats outside and inside. Nice swimming pool too. When you are in a group, you sit together at thesame table with breakfast, lunch... More
