Sarova Mara Game Camp
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 September 2013

Exceptional staff here, the service provided was unbelievable. The food is excellent and one of few lodges/hotels that cater for vegetarians equal to non vegetarians. No specials requests needed- everything one could want was on the buffet table. Should you want anything else the staff were superb at accommodating. The game was few compared to the game near the river but there is still a lot to be seen. The time between game drives can be spent swimming, playing table tennis, badminton, archery, darts or just relaxing in the lounge or by the bar. Top marks to Sarova!

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a cottage which had more privacy, but the standard rooms are good too and a less...

When I slept at night, I could hear a lion that the staff said often comes to drink water near the waterhole outside the resort confines.
How much more real does it get?

The tents were extremely clean and neat, the safari service was superb and the food choice wasnt excellent but manageable to say the least. Still, I would say the dining there is one of the weaker points. Besides that, it was such a scenic place to be in, with small deer called the dig digs often running past you and the local tribes- the Masais coming to dance and perform occasionally in the evenings.

The Sarova game camp helped me absorb so much of Masai Mara even when I wasn't on a safari. On the other hand, it brought Africa to my doorstep.

Permanent tent accommodation, very comfortable, had it's own personality, lots of lawn area, staff were very good, huge range of food at each meal from the buffet set up, and all was delicious. Be aware of the long dirt road in, but WOW is it worth it, from the surroundings to the adventure.

Grabbing a cocktail at the bar by the fire after an afternoon game drive is absolutely relaxing. Maasi dance show daily at 7:30pm should not be missed. All the staff on the property are extremely friendly and helpful. Individual tent may seem to be close to each other at first, but each is quite well separated/hidden by tall plants and bushes.

I stayed here because of a working meeting. My stay was indeed very confortable. All the confort is provided in the tent, including hot water bottles, hot shower, mosquito repellents, etc. The bed is superior in confort. I asked for an extra blanket in the second night and it came in a few minutes. The food is very good with lots of choices on all the dishes - and the idea of a "taylored" soup is great. You can do a lot of wildlife viewing even inside the camp: the surroundings, with lots of water, lush vegetation and gardens are place for the Dick-Dick, bushbucks and a variety of birds. Recommend for meetings but, of course, you can also make it a good base to go on game drives. The only problem I encountered: the tents are quite close together - at least the numbers 41 to 45 - and if your neighbour is "noisy", you may have to ask kindly...

Room Tip: As I said, you may want to ask for a tent that has some distance from the others if your sleep is li...

Just lovely tents with granite bathrooms. Each tent felt like it was in the middle of the wilderness - which it was! The whole property was lovely and they had a wonderful area for congregating with other people for happy hour. This was the last place we stayed in Kenya and by far the most authentic for an Out of Africa experience and the staff was superb!

Room Tip: I was quite a ways from the actual buildings that comprised the compound. At first I was a little s...
