“Luxury bush camp in beautiful location overlooking Mara Plains”
Reviewed 20 April 2010

The two nights spent at Mara Siria Camp went all too quickly. The friendly staff greatly added to the enjoyment of our stay. The accomodation was tastefully furnished and very clean. Meals, were varied although of a limited menu, and were delicious with portions that were more than adequate. Our driver/guide made our game drives in the Masai Mara memorable indeed as he knew many choice locations for animal viewing. We saw the Big 'seven', which included three of the cats!
We can wholeheartedly recommend the Mara Siria Camp, and hope to visit again soon.

I stayed with a group of friends at The SIria camp for the weekend. The setting is spectacular - high up on the escarpment with fantastic views over the Mara. The tents are very comfortable, well furnished and clean. The staff provide a very personal service and are very flexible about meal times - happy to fit in with your safari plans. We did not use their vehicle/guide for our safaris but another guest highly recommended them as being very knowledgeable.
Would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay for your safari in the Mara.

The camp site was in a fantastic position with the most amazing views over the Mara.
Excellent service, lovely people. The safari days were wonderful, our driver Ken tried to show us everything. Thanks Pheonix.

I've been to the Mara several times and this time brought my brother, sister and her three kids aged 12 to 16 for their first visit. We all loved Siria. It is really unspoilt, at the top of the escarpment with amazing views. Breakfast is served right at the top- like something out of 'Out of Africa'. Tents are very comfortable and quite 'eco'. Water comes in a bowl, but loos do flush. Hot water for showers has to be ordered and comes very quickly. Just lovely- a real bush camp, but you are very well looked after. No nicely paved walkways, but set amongst the trees and grass, and only about 12 tents in total. Do take the escorted walk down the escarpment to the hippo pools with the masai guide. Food was great and service too. No TV, no loud music, but that's why we loved it, including the kids. Something a bit different and special, and not your average tourist spot.

No large crowds packing into minibusses, no beauty sapa or other unnecessary frills, fantastic staff, and a genuine desire to minimise their footprint in the Mara - what a refreshing change to the usual run of the mill "pack-em-in-like-sardines" lodges!!

Away from the crowds, good food, lovely tent accomodation, lots of game...... what more can you ask for!
The tented room with attatched bathroom is very quaint, no running water, but if you need a hot shower they arrange a lovely bush shower.
Staff were most attentive and so friendly, we were treated like royalty.
I loved the place.

On the 9 May, we had the pleasure of spending time at the Mara Siria luxury bush camp, which was an increditable experience. The balance of providing a true African experience and a five star treatment for their guests could not be over emphasied. It was my first visit to the Maasai Mara and coming for South Africa, it provide me with a life long memory. The camp is private and exclusive; and accommdates about 30 which provide a very relaxing environment. The camp offered excellent game drives, meals and accommodation. The staff are warm, friendly and very proactive in making your stay an experience. I look forward to my next stay at Mara Siria.
