The Property is very beautiful and the most important part is the people there from the Waiter to the Chief to the Assistant Chief to the bartender to the porter. We could see the Humbleness in their service and also the promptness. Not to forget our Veg Menu was taken care very nicely!! We created memories for a Life time!!...

Visited from April 23rd to April 25th 2017. The accommodation quality and professionalism of staff is excellent as other reviews suggest. The camp is very close to Sekenani gate of Maasai Mara Reserve, approximately 3 hours drive to Mara river. You do not see many animals in this part of reserve than close to river.

We stayed here while visiting the Maasai Mara. It's located within the park, so you're on your game drive the moment you leave the facility. The staff is beyond attentive and grounds are beautiful. There were dik diks roaming around at night and the tents were water-tight (a thunderstorm passed through one night) and well-appointed. The camp is run on...

Inspite of the low population of the Wild life during this time of the year we were able to see the big Five except the RHINO and to make it even better the friendly service, clean tents and good food at the lodge made our holiday a memorable one. Keep it up SAROVA.
