This is by far the best lodge of our safari. Located just outside the Mara gate. I was a bit apprehensive as it was outside, but frankly it doesn't matter. There is a small river by the lodge, which you can view from bar and restaurant area. Saw few hippos and crocodile in that river.
The rooms are very charming, spacious and cozy. Although it is just outside Mara, there are no other lodges close-by.
Food was excellent, very tasty and spread was quite a bit. We got to see plenty of bird variety in lodge campus, spotted at least 25 different species of birds, plenty of mongoose and monitor lizard right from our room. The Mara reserve is few hundred meters from lodge gate and we always saw vultures and tawny very close by when going to Mara.
