We are in Kenya every other year for a medical mission trip, and while there we always try to do a short safari, to rest before flying home. The Sarova is always so welcoming, and just a great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Africa. To say its tent camping is not really true. It may look like... More

To start with, I am NOT a camper. Sleeping in a tent is not my idea of a vacation or even fun for that matter. When we booked a safari tour in Kenya, our itinerary included two nights at the Saraova Mara Tented Camp. As you might imagine, I had certain reservations....... Boy, was I surprised! What a delight.

I have been on safari a number of times since I live in Uganda, but this stay at Serova was beyond all previous experiences. We stayed in the top 'tents' and they are self-contained, exquisitely furnished and positioned. The staff were terrific and the food was absolutely wonderful! We stayed 2 nights and 3 days and the whole experience was... More

I have booked a family tent which is 2 tents connected with a room, the kids enjoyed the camp, at night you have diner and there is a show, in the day you have breakfast and you head out for the drive. After the drive you get back for lunch and then you have 2 to 3 hours down time.

This is actually a resort than a camp.Luxury spacious tents with all the facilities. We had booked standard tents which were fine, but had very little porch area.

A small group of friends visited this game camp. We especially loved our tent accommodations. The bed was so comfy as were the pillows. Our safari produced almost every animal we were hoping to see! Although the roads are bumpy, the scenery was magnificent. Buffet meals were amazing and tasty, with many food options. Great safari/game camp option!
