From the time we landed and were greeted at the air strip by Mary and our guide Henry; there the experience began. We have toured Africa over the past few years but the staff and ambience at the Fairmont Mara safari Club were not to be believed!
The "mini" game drive on the way to the "camp site" offered a taste of what was to come. Stopped by the Mara river to take some pictures with the Hippos for background and said hello to the Zebras and Giraffes on the way.
Our housing was "tents" but don't let that fool you! The large four poster bed with misquito net was just the beginning; the interior decor was marvelous. Our tent had a porch which was right above the Mara river with a views of Hippos and Crocs with monkeys visiting in the morning and evening.
Meals are in the main lodge offer choices for even the pickiest eater and are timed to work with the multiple daily safaris and other activities.
A large part of the experience are the game drives that are part of the package. We went on two each day and got the best photographs of the entire trip! Some of our friends went on the hot air balloon trip whcih is available and enjoyed themselves.
The staff, including our tent attendant were absolutely perfect! It was as if our every request was anticipated and fulfilled. This was definetly NOT your normal camping experience! We could not recommend it more highly.
