Recently returned from a Best of Kenya Safari booked through REAL AFRICA in the UK (a company we would highly recommend).
We stayed three nights at the Mara Simba Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The accommodation comprised of lodges dotted through well-kept grounds situated on the banks of the river. The staff were great, the food was varied and of good quality and there is a nice swimming pool area to relax (and enjoy a glass of Tusker) in between the early morning and late afternoon game drives.
As with lots of holiday accommodation all over the world, power points for the charging of cameras, I-pads, mobile phones and your electric toothbrush etc. are always at a premium. It is therefore useful to pack a 3 or 4 way extension block (mains system the same as the UK).
The huge and famous Masai Mara is of course fantastic - especially if you want to see lions.We certainly needed the three nights to cover the area properly and to maximise the game viewing experience.
We really enjoyed our experience at Mara Simba and it was a great end to our two week Safari. Our rating of 4 stars only reflects that during the 2 weeks in Kenya we stayed at a couple of other lodges that were even better!
