This is one of the best locations for a Lodge in Masai Mara as it's just minutes away from the Mara River. The game drives are amazing and the guides plan your trips very well for you. They ensure that they take you to the various zones each day's and communicate amongst themselves sharing the animal movements that they witness.... More

A fantastic experience where you live in and amongst the wild life safely. The views, service and overall environment is fantastic. The balloon breakfast safari is a must. The wildlife of course is stunning and the drivers experienced

I stayed at this lodge with my young family for 2 nights from 12 to 14th December 2014. All I can say is that we had a wonderful time. Everything about the place was excellent, from the quality of the lodge, the food and above all else, the service of the staff. We were even given a free bush breakfast... More

With the way the walls are constructed and rounded, this is a different style of lodge to some of the other lodges. The inside of the Lodge is very spacious with lots of seating areas in different nooks. There is a lovely log fire for when the nights get cold and steps that go up to the restaurant where we...

I still can't quite believe this place exists when I look at my photos! The hotel is incredible. Service polite and second to none. The views.......the views are absolutely divine. I cannot imagine a better panoramic view of the Maasai mara. We sat at the pool relaxing and watching the zebras migrating over the river with giraffes watching over the... More

Spent 2 nights, after a long drive it was a welcome sight and once inside, amazing. Then the view, breathtaking. Especially the sunrise and sunset (with accompanying lightning at this time of year). Rooms were good with great views as well. If I go back to the Mara I will surely stay again without hesitation.

Lovely hotel, clean and spacious cabins. Animals just outside the back door. Views throughout are spectacular. Nice selection of food for meals, very caring and helpful staff in the hotel. The guides for the safari was terrific - thanks, Paul and his helper Linus. Their warmth and friendliness made the trip that much better. Saw many animals including a male... More

We were recently fortunate enough to celebrate our wedding and honeymoon at the Mara Serena Lodge. I cannot speak highly enough of the Mara Serena. The staff made planning our wedding a breeze - taking care of all the details and letting us simply relax and enjoy this wonderful place. Everyone was attentive, warm and welcoming. The hotel itself is... More

The most salient things about staying here are the warmth of all staff members. and the unbelievable views of the valley from almost anywhere on the property.The food was very varied and very good. The lobby which has been redone is brilliant. Sitting on the deck one night just below us probably 30 yds away we saw a lion chasing... More
