Wow - a gem of a place! The owner and host clearly has a passion for Maasai Mara and has brilliantly created both a rustic and refined lodge to take in the beauty. It was amazing to watch the hippos and crocs in the river below the lodge and all sorts of animals meandering across the spotted plain. Even more animals were found on game drives, but my favorite game-viewing and photo opportunities were walking with their Maasai staff out beyond the river. Stunning!
Each room was its own cabin essentially - they were classy and provided privacy and sensational views. It really felt like a dream getaway. The food was delicious, the lobby a comfortable and cozy place to hangout pre-meal and reminisce about the day, and the abundant and friendly staff went out of their way to make our experience a special one. I look forward to returning someday!
