I have been on many safaris but this was the first to the Mara during the migration. I don't stay at hotel size safari camps, but we booked last minute. We were lucky to time the trip with the start of the migration and saw plenty of wildlife: lions, cheetah, elephants, leopard, jackal, vultures, gazelle, topi and of course tonnes... More

This game camp is not the very best that is available but very good value for the price. More luxurious camps offer more personalised service and cater for far fewer guests and are generally more "exotic" in their facilities and location and because they often allow for animals to wander through them. Sleeping accommodation in the "club tents" was almost... More

I suposse it depends the level of comfort you want. My main problem was cold. The first day when we arrive it was cold and since the tents are in the shade they were quite damp. They put hot bottle waters in the beds at night but I found getting in and out of bed rather unpleasant. The following day... More

Marvellous Room in the form of luxury camp. Very clean bathroom and very nice room. We stayed two nights at the Sarova Mara, and the were amazed by the room. Service was excellent throughout and this was the case for all the hotels we visited in Kenya. Food was good and felt like it's repetitive as we had similar food... More

I was fortunate enough to visit the Sarova Mara Game Camp with my family for my first safari on my first trip to Africa. We were only on site for just over 48 hours, but the action never stopped. There is only one restaurant on site, but the chefs are exceptional. The variety suited my 6ft 3in brother, and my... More

Beautiful camp - stunning rooms, amazing cuisine, great guides (thanks Peter and Anthony - you were the best!) BUT one of our group had medication taken from their room.

Very luxurious, amazing food and catering even for veggies. Gorgeous swimming pool. Fantastic staff, good entertainment and great night game viewing even from inside the park. The Masai Mara is surely unrivalled in Africa for wildlife. Our guide Abdi Latif was the best we'd ever had. The only problem is the slight insecure feeling as you can't 'lock' your tent,... More

This was a return trip to the Sarova Mara Game Camp and the property continues to impress. The camp is located right in the Massai Mara. It is a tented camp, but don't let that concern you. The tents are well constructed and VERY comfortable. They are built over cement foundations and come well appointed with very comfortable furnishings and... More

I stayed here 2 nights as part of a Globus tour. When we arrived at the camp, it was during one of their power outages to conserve energy. It delayed our check in, but not a big deal.

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
