It is a beautiful place and there are little frogs in the grass as you're escorted back to your room that make an adorable bell-like noise. Ealing rome the ground and hippos and crocodiles inhabit the river that runs next to the prepossessing lodge. The tame Ealing was happy with human contact and said hello, me and my auntie stroked it. Food was exquisite with homemade ice cream (strawberry >> Mmmmm). When we woke up the following morning we had organised a wake up call at 6am for safari. We were woken with tees and coffees. There was a walking safari booked by the lodge and we could walk alongside the river with a guide leading us. I'm very proud that I my nanny found a porcupines quill for me to keep and that now sits on my bedside table reminding me of my once in a lifetime trip to the Royal Mara Safari Lodge.
