Mara Simba Lodge is fantastic. Service is excellent and it is a great location to have as a base as you take a safari to see the beautiful wild animals in the Mara. We were 25 of us and everyone had an amazing time!

We took a trip to masaai mara for four nights. We stayed at the Mara Simba Lodge. The Lodge is perfectly situated along a beautiful river home to crocodiles and hippos which are clearly visible from the bar and restaurant and home to some of the most beautiful species of birds. There is a lot of wildlife outside the lodge,... More

We stayed at Mara Simba for 3 sights towards the end of our Safari and it was a case of saving the best until last. It was a fantastic location for seeing the big six and to experience the wildlife from the comfort of the hotel too. We were greeted on a daily basis by Ring Tailed Mongoose, Vervet Monkeys... More

The best Honeymoon ever wished! This is the authenthic african spirit! We were feeling the nature in every place, in every taste we ate and in every animal that visited us during the meals (monkeys, crocrodriles swimming in the river in front of the hotel) It's simply fantastic. I'm wishing to return there soon!

Mara Simba is a charming property right on the edge of the park. Very spacious rooms, swimming pool, a good bar, good food & top it all up, super friendly & co-operative staff. Highly recommended especially for people who prefer Indian vegetarian food options.

Pleasant rooms with a large balcony facing a small creek a midst savanna vegetation chance to see Hippo's. There are a lot of Masai groups near by and the hotel arranges tours to the Masai villages. The best is the Kenyan Safari for the whole day. Hot air baloon rides were arranged by the hotel reception. They have a beautiful... More

This review should be read in conjunction with my review of Africa Point – there is some repetition, but you need to read both to get the full picture. My wife and I wanted to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary with a safari and beach holiday in Africa (Kenya). I used Trip Advisor extensively to help me decide where to... More

This was a large property but well maintained and spread out so it felt much smaller then it was which was great. Room had a great view and decor was charming. Dinner served a different cuisine every night which was a bit of a let down as I had a bit of travel sickness one day and all there was... More
