Its like a den with a great location on a cliff overlooking the Maasai Mara, Mara River and the great Migration. A perfect resort to enjoy wild life without wasting any time. Great ambiance, great hospitality, great staff and kitchen crew. The restaurant serves great food and caters to all dietary requirements. Pool area is very nice with beautiful views.... More

The location of this hotel is excellent, within the Park and on a hill. Hence the view is nice. And we spotted hippo, lion & cheetah within a km of the hotel. The ambiance is excellent and staff are always helpful and warm. Food is O.K , however for a long stay it might be a problem. The Wi-Fi is... More

What a beautiful place! Service was excellent, the views are tremendous, and the visiting wildlife (warthogs, baboons, etc.) is quite a treat. I highly recommend this lodge for couples, families, or folks traveling solo for an amazing backdrop to your safari adventure.

You cannot ever go wrong with the Mara Serena. It is a fantastic place, superbly located atop a hill thus affording wonderful views across the Mara plains. The comfort and cuisine are first class catering for most tastes. The Indian vegetarian food is particularly very good! The Mara river is about 10 minutes drive away and this is where we... More

The rooms were spectacular and had a viewing area and small deck within your room overlooking the river. There are a few animals that live on the property permanently, such as the warthogs. The hotel is high up on a mountain so you won't see a lot of wildlife up close and personal. The beds were very comfortable; the bathrooms... More

One of the best properties which is inside the Masai Mara National Reserve. It is located on a slightly higher ground as a result the views from the rooms as well as the reserve is breathtaking. I have seen one of the most beautiful sunsets ever here. In fact the rooms are built in such a way that one doesn't... More

We loved everything about our stay at the Mara Serena Safari Lodge except for the MOST IMPORTANT thing a hotel needs to have; a comfortable bed! The BEDS were TOO HARD. The location, staff, food, lodge, accommodations were all top notch until you plopped down on the tough bed! I folded the down stuffed comforter three times then doubled it... More

This was my first trip to Maasai Mara. What a spectacular place! The people were so warm and friendly, the view from our room was out of this world..the food was so fresh and tasty. The sunset game drive was my all-time high. I will never forget this experience, and I can't wait to do it again and again!! Thanks... More

Our trip to Kenya was an unforgettable experience- and Mara Serena made it even more so. After a tiring 100km rocky road to Maasai Mara, everyone was exhausted and desperate to stretch their feet. When we first entered the OLOOLOLO GATE, gazelles, impalas, monkeys and zebras welcomed us- and this gave us a feeling that Maasai Mara wouldn't leave us... More
