Like every other Fairmont property, this hotel is luxurious and lovely. The hotel's rooms are actually modern and convenient tents (with great beds, washrooms and the usual facilities, of course) , which make the stay very special. In addition, the hotel makes it possible for active travelers to enjoy their activities in the Maasai Mara National Park ( such as... More

Having now stayed at Ngerende and the Fairmont Mara, I can offer a bit of a comparison. The tents at Fairmont Mara, while lovely and luxurious, cannot compare to the tents at Ngerende, but that is about the only place where Fairmont falls short. We found the food to be excellent at Fairmont. The highlight for me was an exquisitely... More

A fabulous facility is what we expected and Mara Safari Camp delivers even more. But when you are paying top dollar for a safari experience, that's not what is most important. It's about the animals. And more, it's about a guide who can bring the savannah alive for you. The camp is exquisite and well maintained, with good food, personal... More

What an extraordinary experience! Spectacular and wonderful staff coupled with a beautiful location on the Mara river in the Masai Mara Reserve. The tents are luxurious and the food was delicious. We awoke each morning to a hot cup of coffee delivered with our wake-up. The hippos had just returned to the river from their night out and we were... More

We spent two magical evenings here on a Trips Kenya safari. It was the last stop, and they must have saved the best for last. Our "tent" (if you can call it that) overlooked a ribbon of the river with happy hippos bobbing up and down in the water. You could hear them day and night. The local tripe of... More

This wonderfully situated and great tented lodge was everything you could hope for in a Masai Mara Safari. The camp is big enough to not feel cramped. The accommodation is great, the staff absolutely amazing and they make every effort to ensure your experience is memorable.

We arrived at this camp via light Aircraft and we were well looked after from the moment we landed! The hotel is decorated in a fantastic African theme and the rooms overlook a river full of hippos! The staff were very friendly and always happy to help. The tents were lovely and we loved the game drives - our driver... More

You cannot go wrong with staying at this Fairmont property. Excellent service, luxurious accommodation, beautiful lodge, so much to do and wonderful food! Staff are very welcoming and attentive. I believe every tent has a view of the river with wildlife that includes hippos, crocodiles, monkeys and birds galore! Wonderful just to sit on our private deck and watch the... More
