We finished our 9-day Kenyan safari on a high with 3 nights at this 'camp'. My wife adored it. It's more a resort with stand-alone, tent-like cabins than a camp. I preferred the 3 star Amboseli camp which started our safari because it was more authentic. But even I can't deny this place is very impressive. Our 'tent' was about... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon this summer and couldn't have asked for more from a tented lodge.

I travelled here with my parents and brother, and had a truly great experience. We stayed in the club tents which are comfortable, spacious and extremely clean.

The accommodations were equal to that of a nice three to four star hotel in the US. Clean, roomy bathroom shower and nice tent. Don't be fool (worried) this isn't a typical camping tent. These tents provide privacy and comfort while still attempting to capture the experience of 1940's safaris. Food at the restaurant is always buffet style with many... More

I stayed here with my girlfriend and her parents in March for four days. Overall, we had an extremely great time. The hotel is clean and comfortable, the tented rooms very homey - somewhat luxurious but still feel kind of rustic.

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
