The best place to be in the Masai Mara.Beautiful five star accommodation.The food was excellent as both of us were vegetarians and it was no problem for the chef. Daniel/Emmanuel were excellent guide and a driver. Would like to thank all the staff who looked after us so well . Would definitely come back.

This was the culmination of our week long trip which we had started at their sister resort Ngerede in the Wild. This place was also amazing and felt untouched by civilization on the one hand, yet comfortable and luxurious on the other. The staff was amazing and kudos to the chef! Definitely going back!

We had visited Ngerende for a 2 night stay last year and loved it so much we made plans to return with our 2 adult kids and their spouses. We spent 5 nights and could have easily stayed longer, we each enjoyed every minute of it. The staff became more like family to us this visit, and we were privileged...

We found Ngerende exceptional in every way. Ann and the staff looked after us with great good humour and friendliness. To have a staff of nine satisfying our every need was, to say the least, beyond our experience. The accommodation was luxurious, the location breathtaking and the food inventive and appealing. Daniel and Jonah gave us wonderfully exciting safari drives...

I have been to Ngerende in the Wild 4 times now. Prefer River View tents, but Lakeside is also superb. Beautiful accommodation, great staff! Sometimes they overdo it with the service. Best game drives ever with Jonah and Daniel. Your wish is the teams command. Sundowners on the plains, full day drive with picknick, evening around the campfire watching the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ngerende Island Lodge has only 7 luxury en-suite canvas and wood suites all with raised platforms giving panoramic views of the Mara River and the woods on the opposite bank. Each suite has polished Mahogany floors (including the terrace) and is very spacious providing open plan sleeping and living area complete with wood fire, a separate bathroom providing both Villeroy & Boch massage shower, open air bath (if desired) hand wash basins and flushing toilet. Comfortable seating is provided both in the living area and on the terrace so that the true tranquility of the lodge can be best appreciated. The distance between each suite has been maximised to reduce any risk of disturbance that may be caused by other guests. There is one honeymoon suite isolated from the main lodge, has a private plunge pool and Jacuzzi and has stunning views of the Mara river. Lovely touches as flowers on the bed, fire in the suites, bubble bath with essential oil prepared by your personal butler, hot-water bottle set Ngerende Island Lodge apart from the rest providing a memorable experience. The lodge has been designed to complement the safari experience so as to give comfort, luxury and service naturally. There is an abundance of wildlife both on the Conservation Ranch and of course within the Masai Mara Game Reserve to include Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Hippos and many others. A feature of the Conservation Ranch is an exclusive project to rear the White Rhino so that they can take their place back in the Mara society to which they belong in greater numbers. Over 180 varieties of birds have been spotted within the lodge itself and there are 3 Hippo Pods strategically located around the lodge. ... more   less
