Never thought that we would enjoy sleeping in a tent, but we did. The tents are on a fixed slab and the showers have sturdy walls. The rest of the room is a large size tent with a full size bed. It does not take one long to overlook the fact that the walls are canvas. oom has a nice... More

We were in the area doing some volunteering work. Fairmont was a fantastic location to see the best the Mara had to offer. Not to busy, we went in Safari drives everyday. Our tent oversaw the river where we saw hippos play during the day. Night time sounds was the best! I loved our stay here!

When planning a trip to Africa I really kept my mind open, not knowing what to expect. We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and wanted to go all out! The Fairmont Mara Safari Club did not disappoint, from the moment you are met at the airstrip to the moment you leave you are made to feel so special by the... More

We just returned from our trip to Kenya which included 2 nights at the Fairmont Mara Safari Club. The luxury tent was clean, well-appointed and the showers were hot and lovely - very welcome as we had spent a week at an NGO camp where the amenities were less than ideal. Many of the other resorts/camps in the area are... More

I came here with my dad and 5 year old and this was one of those vacations I will never forget for as long as I live. And this lodge was one of the best I had seen. Lovely friendly staff and of course the scene was amazing. I have fallen in love with all hippos.

The Mara Safari club was our first stop on our two week trip through Kenya. It made for a very high bar for the rest of the trip and was never equaled. The property is in a bend in the Mara river which is filled with hippos and crocodiles. The river is down an embankment about 20' so no need... More

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
