Without a doubt the best all round experience I have ever had. From the greeting to the goodbye the staff has been wonderful. The food was amazing, the safari drivers were extremely knowledgeable and listened to our wishes and we had the best car in the park! The staff was easy to get to know, so sweet and helpful and...

Wow 6* experience! We spent 4 nights at Mara Engai as the first part of our honeymoon from the 27th May to 31st May . What can I say we were spoilt from beginning to end! The service throughout our stay was phenomenal. John looked after us like part of the family, nothing was ever too much. Little touches like... More

We stayed at Mara Engai Wilderness Lodge from 23rd May to 28th May 2015. We had read all of the reviews and were very excited about our trip but no words can really do this place justice. We were picked up at the airstrip by John (6x6) Sankei our guide for the next 6 days and driven to a lovely... More

My husband, Jacob, and I stayed at Mara Engai the first week of October 2014. We had, hands down, the best experience we could have ever imagined. The food...oh my, the FOOD was incredible! The chief accommodated my husband's pescetarian diet and my vegetarian diet without flaw. The vegetarian samosas still make my mouth water. Our driver, Julius, is a... More

This is one of the new Lodges recently opened in Mara. The escarpment where it is located is astonishing, and Oloololo is certainly one of the best places in Masai Mara to spot animals: it is part of the Mara Triangle Conservancy, and not so crowded as others. All the staff was extremely friendly and efficient, and they made sure... More

Mara Engai Wilderness Lodge made our safari unforgettable! It is located on the Estoit Oloolo Escarpment, the part of Masai Mara Reserve with less tourism. It means that you can enjoy your game drives , the nature and the animals without being surrounded by other cars. Everything was perfect: the tend, the view, the staff, the game drives (we saw...

What a wonderful lodge, location and amazing setting. The views across the Masai Mara from our tent (tent 9) were just amazing. The use of the word 'tent' is somewhat of an understatement as it was one of the best rooms I have ever stayed in in any hotel around the world. We nicknamed it our 'mini palace'. The pictures...

As a family we spent three precious nights in the Mara and they were simply mind blowing. During the day we were whisked away on a game drive at the crack of dawn, and the whole day would be filled with raring excitement to see the "Big Five" and the migration is one experience we will never fort.
