As a party of five we stayed for two nights in the Royal Mara, it exceeded expectations the lodges were large and very spacious decorated in Safari style but still with modern facilities excellent shower and his/her sinks. The food was fantastic better than a lot of hotels we have stayed in around the world and served outside by the river with hippo's and other wildlife passing by. Our safari driver Wilson had been working on the the "Big Cat Diary" and the passion he felt with his job was infectious. We saw five out of the Big five although the Rhino was in a sanctuary for obvious reasons. The staff were always cheerful and very helpful including the two guides who accompanied us on a walk where we saw an hippo which had been hurt, they became very strict and insisted that we should be quiet and move the long way around the animal as in pain he could lash out and become very dangerous. Would we go back - yes definitely. We were there in September 2011
