    i am quite late in giving a review of the hotel. but the memory of our stay in this hotel still lingers in our minds. My wife was so impressed with this hotel way more than any other hotel we have been. the reception was very friendly and answers queries truthfully. we dont see that everyday. the food was good but the attention you get from the people there is just too good. chef Gilbert was the highlight for us. we stayed there for 6 nights and we had one of the club tents. thanks to their service of guiding us to our tents in the night, just gives u that extra comfort at night. they arranged for a breakfast in the garden for us which just put the cherry on the top. this is one of the best hotels we have been to and would definitely go back there in our next trip to Kenya.

    Room Tip: people taller than 6 feet, advise you to take the club tents. a little costlier but worth it as the tents are taller. it is also near the fence.

    We travelled here as a couple on a tour and found it quite relaxed. There is not much walking to be done internally. The Club Tents looked much nicer to us, although we had a standard one. We were a fair way away in the 50's in terms of tent numbers. It's not the real tent experience as there is an electric fence around the compound. I think it was a good introduction to the Masai, and we were well looked after. The staff were initially a bit reserved, but very friendly.

    A birthday celebration for one of our party was memorable for its enthusiasm and the African take on a birthday song.

    Wine list not the greatest, but we certainly were well fed. Indian food and bread was an unexpected highlight.

    Room Tip: Club Tents are more private and comfortable. Standard tents mean a lot of bending.

    This was the largest Safari Lodge we stayed in during our week-long safari. The tents were a bit too small, but had a nice layout and lovely turn-down service that zipped up the tent and set up the mosquito netting. The restaurant was amazing in all the offerings it had. Beautiful desserts, cook-to-order pasta and big buffet with Kenyan and Indian food. Lots of fresh salads and vegetables were always plentiful. The pool was small, but never had time to use it anyway. The grounds were beautiful and the check-in process was easy and thorough. Good wi-fi, great gift shop, friendly bar service with a great camp fire in the center of it. Just beautiful and its only minutes from the great animals in the Reserve. Great Place!

    The tents are nice. Food OK! Hotels expensive and don't see why! Safari $70 per person, u need to also pay the park $70 p/p per night. Hotel is full board, around 700 per night for 2. Not including the above fees. If u go, arrange safari from somewhere else, much cheaper!

    Dear Guest,
    Thank you for sharing your feedback on our lodge. We do appreciate it and I have noted your comments on the charges for the hotel and for the game drives. Also of note is the charge of USD 70 per person on park fees which is payable directly to the park authorities.
    We do have all inclusive packages which incorporate game drives, air fare, transfers from and to the airstrip and inclusive of bubbly breakfast. Kindly do get in touch on sarova.mara@sarovahotels.com for further details on these when next planning your trip to the Mara.
    I do hope the next time your travels bring you to Kenya, you will return to Sarova Mara Game Camp and be sure to let me know. It’ll be a pleasure to meet with you and for you to enjoy our good facilities, excellent food and amazing hospitality.

    We definitely look forward to hosting you again.
    Kind regards,
    Francis Msengeti Lodge Manager Sarova Mara Game Camp

    Our stay at the Sarova Mara Game Camp was the highlight of our 10 day Kenya and Tanzania safari. We stayed for two nights, but wish we could have stayed longer. We were greeted by a Masai gentleman in full regalia. We stayed in the club tents which were absolutely beautiful. There was a large queen-sized bed and a cot for a child. The bathroom was amazing! Our tent was at the very edge of the property so we were a little scared the first night, but quickly became used to the sounds of the tree branches hitting the roof. The fairy-like dikdik deer outside our tent just added to the ambiance! We loved the furnishings, especially the canvas shelves. There was a large variety of food at every meal. We enjoyed the different stations where they cooked the meat and fish on request. The location is unbelievable. We were there in July in the middle of the wildebeest migration. The staff could not have been kinder. Esther went out of her way to make the experience unforgettable for my 11 year old nephew. She took time out of her busy day to take him fishing in the lake on the hotel grounds, and also taught him card games. We received the highest quality of service at the Sarova Mara. I wish I could go back and stay for a whole week!
