Words cannot express how grateful we are to the staff at Royal Mara for making our stay in the Mara such a great experience....
My husband and I have traveled a lot and we have never stayed with such lovely, hospitable, friendly, caring people as we did at royal Mara. The staff are the best we have ever come across. In particular, Camp manager James, Simon our driver, Steven our waiter and Steven the security guard, Samuel the security guard, Moses and Johnson.
The owners, George Snr & George Jnr, as well were amazing, so helpful and no request was ever too much for them.
The rooms were out of this world, they are huge all with a large balcony overlooking the river where the resident hippos & crocodiles are on display, all wood used inside the cabin & furniture is hand carved, and the attention to detail is sensational! The game drives were great as well, seeing 4 of the "Big 5" multiple times across the week and getting great pictures of them all. The staff took so much pride in ensuring we had a great time.
The food is restaurant quality, never once were we left feeling hungry. Great variety and wholesome good food. There are also only 8 cabins so it gives a very intimate feeling and everyone gets looked after well.
We would recommend the Royal Mara to anyone who is thinking of this type of holiday, we will most definitely be going back!
