Just got back from a trip to Mara Siria with my two young sons (age 6 and 8), their teenaged cousins (15 and 16) and my aunt and uncle. All four generations found the trip to be astounding. The location is breathtaking--sitting on the bench at the edge of the camp, looking down onto the Mara from the top of...

Mara Siria offers unparalleled views over the Masai Mara for breakfast, but there are aspects of the camp that offer room for improvement. As other reviewers have mentioned, the regime at the camp expects clients to follow a fairly rigid schedule. It's not the sort of place where you can stroll down for a sundowner, or wander about with a...

My early-70's in-laws and my husband and I stayed for two nights at the Mara Siria Bush Camp, having booked through Dipa Shaw of Phoenix Travels in Nairobi.

I visited Mara Siria with a friend in mid-September for three days, and had a wonderful time. The bush camp is gorgeous, particularly as it is situated on an escarpment that overlooks the plains below. It has an outdoorsy rustic charm with a limited number of rooms, meaning capacity is limited to several dozen tourists at a time. The staff...
