The lodge name has changed a number of times and this made me worry a little but on visiting I must say I fell in love with the place. I will never forget the hippo at the river just next to the lodge

A co-worker and I who work in Western Kenya decided to take a weekend trip to Masai Mara and were very fortunate to stumble upon Mara River Camp. In addition to the incredible location along the Mara River, where hippos were lounging and elephants passing by, the newly renovated facility is gorgeously designed with luxurious safari tents, beautiful dining area,...
