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...

Amazing place. Our hotel room had a fabulous view over the Masai Mara and we saw lots of wildlife on our game drives. Our driver was fantastic. The rooms are quite unique, fun and look like something out of the Flintstines movie! Food is really good and lots of wildlife to see around the resort such as a bright red... More

The hotel is strategically placed in the Mara Triangle which affords one an ability to see more animals. The service at the hotel is exceptional, the staff are very knowledgeable and always willing to go above the call of duty to serve guests. From Rashid and Jamila at the reception desk, Simon and William in transport, Wahome in the gift... More

I spent two nights at the Mara Serena, but wish it had been more - fantastic game drives, the sounds during night and day, the smell of the surrounding plants and flowers combined with the decor and the friendly staff create a sense of magic!
