We visited the Royal Mara Safari Lodge for two nights in October flying up from our hotel on the coast. The Mara is very dry at the moment because of the drought over the last couple of years and our first view once we landed was a cloud of dust approaching which turned to be the truck from the Royal...

We recently stayed at the Royal Mara and I have to say, what a fabulous stay. I just wish we had stayed longer. We booked it with Mic's Tours in Kenya. The staff at the Royal Mara couldn't do enough for you, they were helpful, friendly and very professional. Our driver, John was brilliant. He did so well at getting... More

My fiance and I stayed at the Royal Mara Safari Lodge from the 15th to the 18th September 2009. We booked a two week holiday to Mombasa staying at the Kole Kole Beach and Spa Resort in Diani Beach, but as I tend to get bored with sitting round the pool all day, we decided to add a 4 day... More

We booked our safari through Dok at Kenyan Adventures and we flew to the Royal Mara Safari Lodge from Diani Beach, which took about two hours (flying past Kilimanjaro on the way) for two and a half days safari. We were met at the airport and driven to the Royal Mara. We had only been driving about 10 minutes when... More

The quality of the trip was unbelievable; the service, food, comfort, game drives, everything was fabulous. This safari camp is different from the rest because of the exclusivity, if you want to go somewhere with hundreds of people, pools, bars, and cheap amenities, this is NOT the place for you. This is for the true african afficionado, where animals walk... More

Large art filled villas, Masai butler service, gourmet meals, nightly entertainment -- all this with adjacent pods of hippos and elephant herds. Wild animals frequently come through the camp and can be heard at night.

The Royal Mara is a great camp in a great location. We had 4 days there as part of our honeymoon and it was as special as you would want it to be. The tents are spacious and well kitted out, with comfy beds and wonderful hand carved everything. They are on stilts overlooking the river, where we saw hippos,... More
