We are just coming back from a 7 days safari to Kenya that include Nairobi National Park on arrival, 3 days in Masai Serena, 1 day in Nakuru and 1 day in Amboseli Serena. I had prepared that customized package and send it for quote to more than a dozen tour operators. Africa Flash McTours was one of the fastest... More

Amazing to find a hotel of this beauty, luxury, class and comfort in the middle of miles of wilderness and thousands of wild animals. This hotel would be gorgeous anywhere but, in this setting, it is awesome! The pool is wonderful and you look out at giraffes and elephants wandering in the distance. The roads here are extremely difficult by... More

The location of the hotel is the best part. Awesome view from any room. Thought the rooms are bit small in my opinion. Otherwise every thing is fantastic. Specially the food - be it breakfast, lunch or dinner. The staffs are always smiling any willing to help. A must visit for all safari lovors.

I went with a group and we had the best experience in terms of customer service, game viewing and the like. The food was excellent. The location and decor were breathtaking. Within 5 minutes of game drive we had seen all the big five. One of the best place for those interested in game viewing. It may be far but... More

I stayed at the Mara Serena in April for 3 nights. The views from the hotel were incredible as the Serena is located on a ridge overlooking the Mara reserve. I loved coming back from game drives in the evening and sitting out with a nice cocktail watching the animals from below. Just from the hotel we were able to... More

Living in the ultimate game reserve in Kenya, Serena Safari Lodge is as good as it gets! The landscape and views of the Mara are breathtaking! The safaris are great, with a bit of luck you get to see a lot of the Big Five. The accommodation is very comfortable with all rooms offering a great view of the Mara.... More

I'm kind of regular at the hotel and it has never disappointed in excellent service and cleanliness. The staff are friendly and the grounds are always gorgeous. From the hotel, you have fantastic views of the Mara Triangle, a spectacular corner of the Masai Mara National Reserve.

This is a very nice hotel located on a hilltop - will be able to view wonderful sunrise and sunset sitting on the hotel. You can see animals from the balcony - but quite far to actually enjoy in bare eyes. Except the fact it is not exactly "inside the forest" - since it is on a hillock - there... More

Many camps and lodges are new in the Mara Northern Conservancies, but new does not mean better. In the heart of the Triangle, upon a hilltop you find excellent Serena standard, amazing view over Mara River and even observation of the Migration from your room window (if its Migration- season).If you want to go near by car, its only a...
