Cleanliness-superb, accomodation-excellent, good food, professional staff (in-house, tour drivers, guides). Wonderful scenery with rooms facing (along) the Mara River. The hippos at the "Hippo Centre" are a site to behold. Heavenly peaceful place. I would recommend it to anyone seeking wonderful quiet time and/or a family seeking adventure as the game drive was exciting conducted by a very knowledgable driver/guide.... More

To say our experience at Mara Safari Club was memorable wouldn't do it justice. From the minute you are welcomed the staff give you a personal experience that makes you feel as if you're the only guest at the resort. The tents are beautiful and comfortable; the food homey and comforting; the staff friendly and fun. Of course there are... More

We enjoyed staying a few nights at this resort. We had been looking forward to being in a luxury tent resort. We couldn't have enjoyed it any more. We had our safari by the Micato Safaris and they had "sun downers", basically open bar with appetizers. The dinners and breakfasts were complete but we had early morning safaris to go... More

Unbelievable, an adventurers must do in a life time. There was no time to sleep 8 hours you had to wake up early for the delightful breakfast by the river and then a game drive. I must tell you the game drive was like watching National Geographic channel only difference you were in the documentary taking the pics n video... More

We visited here November 2008 so this review is a little late. But it was such a memorable experience had to share. Wonderful accomodations (tent cabins, don't forget to zip up the tent of you'll have bush babies going thru your stuff), amazing service (hot water bottles to warm your bed, wakeup service with tea, coffee and pastries delivered to...

I didn't make that statement lightly. Two million air miles and hundreds of fine hotels to compare with. We slept in luxurious "Fairmont" tents that allowed us to go to sleep to the sounds of wildlife and hippos at night. The property perched over the Mara river feels totally isolated from the world, and at times during the day there... More

This resort is one of my all time favorites, especially if you want a romantic time, time to be with nature, or time to unwind. If you like wild animals and 4-wheeling, all the better, as there is plenty of that, too. Even without the room charge, the daily cost is $90 for food and over $80 for park fees... More

We flew into the Masai Mara from Malindi which took about 2 hours. It was a new experience for us landing on gravel air strips but the pilots seemed to just do it casually and so well. We had 2 stops before arriving at the Mara Safari Club so were getting quite accustomed to the landings and take-offs. We were... More

When I heard that we were staying in tents, I thought I would absolutely hate it. But it was great, we had tent #5 which was a good location. The hippos in the river right outside the tent made a racket during much of the time but it wasn't disturbing. Food was good. Only problem was that we asked for... More

The Mara safari club was simply amazing. Arriving at the airstrip, and being greeted by a knowledgeable and friendly guide was the perfect warm up to the trip. After a cool drink, we headed down to the lodge. Lots of hippos, lions, and even a leopard sighting. This was my first safari, but I will be back for more for... More
