I spent two nights at Amani Mara in Octobre 2012 – unfortunately only two nights. The lodge is incredible. It is situated in the Masai Mara but „off the beaten track“ in a peaceful conservation area and was built with remarkable attention to detail and blends in perfectly with the environment. The owners, Ashif and Shelina, personally take very good... More

We visited Amani Mara Lodge in March 2013. The visit was a beautiful experience in it's entirety. Beautiful views from the lodge itself, looking out over a river full of hippos! Wonderful decor within the building. A great atmosphere - calm, peaceful, very much at one with the natural surroundings. The service was also wonderful. My sister and her fiance... More

Our trip to the Masai Mara was arranged by Affable Tours http://www.affabletours.com/ who were truly excellent.

Visited Amani Mara in March 2012. We LOVED our time there and were already planning to come back even before we left. The staff and owner are very attentive and friendly. It is a small lodge, so we felt very personalized attention. We had an opportunity to go on a Masai-guided nature walk, go to a Masai village, had a... More

In fact, an elephant... More

I spent almost a month with the family that own and operate this lodge. This place is a labour of love. The family is well respected in the community, passionate about conservation and has a wealth of knowledge about the local eco-system, culture and tradition. Unlike places where you are just another guest, the Amani Mara ensures you are welcomed... More
