We chose this new resort on the basis of our stay the year before at their beach resort at their Indian Ocean Retreat. We were welcomed as if we were returning friends and the staff welcomed us into "their family". The food was excellent, the view from our cabin overlooking the Mara was awe-inspiring and we had a great time... More

This is a very late review but for anyone considering going to Masai Mara, I would recommend Mara Engai Wilderness lodge. Having been on numerous safari's in East Africa, I was recommended this lodge when we wanted a small break from a wedding we were attending in Nairobi. Wow ! from the moment we arrived for our 2 night stay.... More

I can not say enough of fabulous Mara Engai Lodge. This was the best lodging experience of my vacation across Uganda, Kenya and Seychelles, and quite frankly my entire life. I wish we had stayed longer--only planned a one night stay! My wife and I will remember forever. Absolutely unsurpassed experience. A class of its own. Attention to detail was... More

From the minute of our arrival to the last minute of our departure we were pampered and cared with so many surprises. It was a life times experience for my daughter and I. We loved all the people, places and above all the kind care they showered upon us. It was our 1st time Masai Wildnerness Lodge and Kilifi. We... More

The Mara Engai Wilderness Lodge is simply the best hotelling experience I have ever had! From the amazing welcome by the Mara Masai tribesmen, to the food, the customer service and dedication to making you happy and comfortable is just a class of it's own. Management and key members of staff our ranger Julius and tribesman Danial deserve a special... More

The views are absolutely outsatnding, the food was superb and the attention to detail was wonderful. Our guide Peter had a great knowledge of the wildlife and delivered the information in an enthusiastic... More

This was a simply amazing experience. We were welcomed by some singing from the masaai people and I immediately felt at home. Our bags were carried for us and we were escorted to our rooms. The tents were cozy and fit for purpose. At night there were hot water bottles in our beds which helped as it got cold. The... More

This was an amazing, amazing, amazing place. First and foremost the staff were welcoming, attentive, helpful and all in all wonderful human beings. You were constantly surprised at every turn from the Airstrip pick-up to the absolute end of your stay with the Mara Engai family. The tents/rooms were spacious, facilities were clean and modern. The food was absolutely delicious... More

Recently returned from Kenya and this was the best 4 days we have had on any holiday. We have been lucky to be able to travel but nothing has come close to this experience. From spotting Cheetas on the drive to the lodge, to the warmest welcome we have ever had. It didn't stop there either, this was not a... More
