I have been to the Mara before but didn't have the same oohs and ahhs like I did when staying at Amani Mara. Amani is a Swahili word that translates to 'peace' and the place lived to its name in the 3 nights that I was there.
The staff was more than helpful and entertained me with stories about their escapades with wild animals. Ashif, the owner was very hands-on in ensuring that our stay was smooth. Since there are 9 cottages there is a personalised approach in terms of service.
The rooms were clean and well maintained. The dining area has a breath taking view of a river full of hippos. The swimming pool is on a cliff giving it an amazing aesthetic feel.
I will definitely stay here again when I'm down at the Mara. It was a delightful experience.
