While located outside the park, Mara Leisure was our favorite place that we stayed during our three week safari to Kenya and Tanzania!
The rooms were very nice and very clean and the bathroom was very large! (Note that power is turned off at night (I think around 10 pm but don't remember for sure) until around 6 am in the morning.)
The food was great as well. Most of the meals were buffet style, but great tasting! We were very pleased with the food.
There is internet, however, there is just one computer and it is very slow. I believe the rate is 10 Kshs per minute.
But what made the place so great was the staff! They were by far some of the best staff we have ever had! The ladies at reception were very helpful and friendly. The staff at the restaurant and bar were top quality as well! I definitely recommend Mara Leisure.
