Looking for a relax four-day holidays, we contacted Royal Mara Safari Lodge. Although the way of paying from another country was kind of difficult, we had an amazing time in the Lodge.
From the first beginning we were warmly welcomed. The staff, rangers, drivers, etc were kind and tried to make us feel relaxed and unwind.
The day when we were transferred from the airstrip to the lodge we could even see lions, zebras, lost of different types of antilops, hippos, etc.
It was useful to mention in advance that I was vegetarian, so they could prepare special food for me. However,every lunch menu was similar, but during dinner we got more interesting dishes.
Cottages are practically the same. We stayed in the cottage number 1 and 7, however we preferred #1 because of small details, although the hippos make more noise during the night.
We loved the picnic we had after visiting the Rhino Sanctuary. It is a must and highly recommended, as well as the visit to the Masai Community.
