What an Amazing Safari Experience. You are right on the Savannah ....close to the beauty of the animals. Our guide was Superb. We also went on a day walk with the Naturalist Joseph.....not to be missed. Luxury in a Natural setting. The Serena Safari Lodge got the Silver award for the best hotel in Africa the year that we visited.... More

When you land at Serena Mara Air Strip, you see nothing around. You wonder where are you going to stay. However as your Guide and Escort drives to this Lodge hidden inside Greenery on top of a small hillock, only thing that you say is "WOW". Great Reception, comfortable stay, variety of food and drink options and even if you... More

Stayed at the Mara Serena for four days and 3 nights. The view from the main deck is spectacular. You could sit there all day! The rooms are well equipped and the view continues to impress. The staff is warm, courteous and speaks English. We had a few special requests and all of them were met with smiling faces and... More

Built to look like Masai huts, but with all modern amenities present, this is a great place in Mara. The savannah stretched below us, making for an amazing view. Add to that great food and great hospitality. This place made our first time in Masai Mara special.

This was our fourth Serena in our 6 week safari expedition in Africa. It was the best of them. We stayed for 3 nights. The rooms were adjoining cabins, well appointed and very comfortable, although not overly spacious. The bathroom was also a good size. The balcony looked down over Masai Mara and we often saw giraffes, buffalos and elephants... More

This hotel is FABULOUS!! The rooms are in rows that face out over the Mara. You can see herds of animals close and in the distance. The staff here is over the top amazing! The dining staff as well, go above and beyond. The hotel was renovated a few years ago and they now have a new entrance and a... More

A Really Unique and delightful Hotel, right in the middle of Mara. This was our first visit to Mara, and we were awed and wowed by the splendour around us. To us Mara Serena seems to be the perfect place to enjoy Mara. Built on a hillock the all of the Hotels rooms offer commanding views of the Mara. The... More

The impression you get of this hotel, by reading and wiewing the pictures online, are not accurate enough. It's better! Much better! We are staying in room 72, with the most beautiful, breathtaking wiew, overlooking Masai Mara and the river. Insted of dividing our safari between 2 lodges, we chose to stay here at Serena, for the entire stay at... More

This was one of our favourite lodges on our recent safari vacation in Kenya and Tanzania in June/July 2015. From the location to the service, it was truly memorable. We stayed here 3 nights and wished we stayed longer. The rooms are awesome with endless views of the Masai Mara. The food was awesome and the service was good. We... More

The hotel was surprisingly good! We didn't expect such a great hotel in such a remote location. The rooms were clean with a fantastic view from the terrace over the valley. Lobby, dining area, outside territory - everything was great. Friendly stuff at the reception who helped us with printing out our boarding passes. The food was just fantastic with... More
