It is one of the best wilderness lodges I have ever been to. Excellent facilities. The staff are the best I have ever met. All meals are included in the package. I am a strict vegetarian and they always had specially cooked vegetarian food for me in separate vessels. The guides are knowledgeable and make sure you have the best... More

We travelled with our two children and two grandchildren on on a Kenyan safari organised by Gamewatchers.This company's attention to detail in organising our twelve day trip was fantastic and could not be faulted. Our driver/guide Tony, was expert in finding and identifying animals and birds and helped us to see the big five and witness thousands of wildbeest crossing... More

THE PROS: High standard tent with full facilities. We loved listening to the lions roaring at night. THE CONS: In-your-face-touristy. Having to say Jambo 50 times a day became our joke. Unauthentic Masai dancers performing in front of the souvenir shop. Beware of the agressive crowd at the dinner buffet. All the food was tasteless except for the freshly prepared... More

We were worried about our tour reservation which scheduled a standard tent. Read in the reviews that the height could be uncomfortable for a very tall person. My husband is 6'7". I e-mailed Irene and she answered us very promptly. When we arrived, Steven took care of us immediately. The club tent was wonderful! We so appreciated the courteous and... More

Ever dreamt of living with wildlife? This place gives you the ultimate experience! You can see wild Animals ranging from Antilopes, Wharthogs, Giraffes, Elephants, Bulls and Leopards (if you are lucky!) with a range of birds in front of your camp. Beautifully located in Masai Mara National reserve, you may find more than in your game drive without having to... More

This was our second visit and we were again very pleased with our stay. After a month of mission work and hosting many guests, this was a wonderful place to recover. Food, staff, tent/cabin, safari outing----everything was excellent. Even though there were many cabins, we felt very secluded and private. It was peaceful and the grounds were beautiful and my...

My first trip to Africa was made even more special by this special place. Food, lodging, staff - all were great. We especially liked our guide, Ken Kisio, who went the extra mile to find us a view of rhinos (2!) AND a group of 6000 wildebeest crossing the Mara River. A great finale to a great trip. Thanks.

We had 150 people in our group. Our accommodations were very comfortable. The tent-like cabins had modern bathroom, comfortable bed with mosquito netting. The floor was wooden planks. Hot water bottles were provided to warm our bed. The landscaping was lovely. The property had been built to preserve the large trees. Each cabin was quiet. The food was good and... 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
