It's all about location and the Sarova Mara Game Camp certainly has it. It is well located in the middle of the Masai Mara Game Reserve. We only stayed here for two nights and went on three safaris but we were able to see a vast array of animals from here. We saw about 14 lions (including a mating pair)... More

Before we booked the trip, I was not sure what to excpect in the middle of the Maasai Mara National Park. The Sarova Camp far exceeded our expectations. The staff, the facilities, the luxury tent that was more like a luxury cottage, the food at the restaurant, the swimming pool, the gardens. I would highly recommend this paradise in the... More

Wow! This was the first time I had been to Africa and on a safari and I can’t think of a single thing that could have been better.

We were booked into Sarova Mara by Go Kenya Tours and Safaris. What a wonderful, beautiful spot. We were fortunate to stay in the large tented "suite". Much more than we anticipated. The grounds are beautiful. The restaurant quite good. The strolling singer/guitarist an added treat. Thank you for a lovely stay. I would highly recommend this spot

This is quite the spot. After a long day on "the road from hell" to get to Mara, this is like an oasis. Our "tent" was beautiful. I would recommend spending the extra money to stay in club tents as it just adds to the sense of quite and luxury. The dining is buffet style and my only negative comment... More

We stayed three nights at this game camp and thought our previous camp experience couldn't be topped, but it was. The individual tents were stunning and the game drives amazing. We saw all the big 5 plus thousands of animals grazing and hunting. All of the staff are very capable and helpful, but our driver Edward had 20/10 vision combined... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Nothing quite captures the true spirit of East Africa, like a safari in Kenya’s richest game reserve, the Maasai Mara. Sarova Mara Game Camp offers front seats to nature’s most breathtaking show - the wildebeest migration. The endless plains of East Africa are the setting for the world’s greatest wildlife spectacle where, from the vast Serengeti plains to the champagne colored hills of Kenya’s Maasai Mara, over 1.4 million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra and gazelle, relentlessly tracked by Africa’s great predators, migrate in a clockwise fashion over 1,800 miles each year in search of rain ripened grass. Sarova Mara Game Camp is well positioned to enjoy this unique phenomenon. The rolling plains around the Camp are teeming with wildebeest, gazelles and zebras, during the migration months and the Camp is situated right in the center of their migration path. Sarova Mara Game Camp is also the ideal choice for those seeking a richer experience of Maasai Mara that goes much beyond just game drives. By virtue of its location and layout, the Camp offers an unparalleled plethora of activities and experiences from luxury tented living to bird-watching, mini golf, sport fishing and a unique insight into the Maasai culture at the adjoining Maasai village. ... more   less
