We travelled with the family in June. The weather was great, the game parks were just awesome and Sarova Mara Game Lodge was one of the best experiences. We loved the accommodations, the food was delicious, well prepared and very well presented. The staff were very hospitable and warm. They loved it when we remembered their names and acknowledged their...

We were shifted here because our travel agent messed up with our booking. Nevertheless it was a great stay and night. Was sad that they did not have an African style BBQ the night we stayed. But it was on short notice and the staff were so helpful to make our stay comfortable

If you want to see big cats up close, you can't beat the Mara. We weren't here during migration time so there weren't many wildebeest or zebras, but everyone else was there. It was incredible how many lions we saw as well as cheetahs and even leopards in such a short amount of time. Our guide from the Sarova, Daniel,...

The hotel is located inside the Masai Mara Park, so it will be very easy to get into your Jeep and start your safari. The staff was very kind and professional, and everything went fine. Rooms (tents!) are comfortable and leaves an amazing memory. During the night you could also hear all kind of noises from animals! The service is...

The Sarova Mara offered an exceptional experience in the heart of one of Africa's most beautiful parks: comfortable accommodations, delicious food, beautiful grounds, the friendliest of staff, and - most of all - unforgettable wildlife tours every morning and evening. I would advise booking directly with the hotel, as I had significant problems making changes to the reservation after I...

The camp is as advertised, very nice and comfortable, staff is very friendly and location at the entrance of the park is awesome. I normally don't like buffet food, but this one was particularly good.
