We stayed here just for one night as a surprise for the children.
The accommodation we had had 3 bedrooms all with bathrooms. 2 double bedrooms and 1 twin. A lounge area and fridge. we over looked the swimming pool. you got to the accommodation on sort of golf carts. During the day we went round the safari and lots of photos done and an elephant ride. We then went back for a swim, we were the only one in the pool and you could see all the animals. In the evening we did a night safari then had a meal in the restaurant there which was nearly all glass and you could see the lions. In the morning you are collect by elephant and taking to breakfast. It was a great experience and would do it again.

Room Tip: 3 bedroom family room was fantastic

The hotel is nice, food is ok service is great. We spent a great time at the park. In my opinion rather then coming a full day at the park spend the night and do the night safari it will be more relaxing and more fun. On day/night is more than enough for the park

We stayed for 2 nights in a Swala room which was on the ground floor. Service of all staff was accomodating and friendly. We arrived early so they gave us another room, gave us the key and told us to roam the Safari Park until our room was ready - this was exactly what we were prepared to do.

Being able to feed the ostriches and zebras from our room was definitely a highlight.

The pool was lovely. My children were able to swim and watch the roaming animals. As the sun started setting we could hear the roars of the lions.

Meals were by good with only large windows separating us from the lions.

Being in "Africa" there were a lot of bugs in the bathroom. Just make sure you bring some insect repellant. I was also scared by a little frog who lives in the bathroom.

The beds were comfortable. Good TV channels but the second night most channels seemed to lose reception. Wifi was ok - good for social media and basic emailing, not good if you needed to work.

Amazing stay and will definitely come again.

We stayed at Mara River Safari Lodge for one night. It's an awesome place worth spending one to two nights there. We picked the family room which was luxurious and spacious with view of the Rhinos, Zebras and Ostriches. We also got an elephant to take us for breakfast each morning. We took the night safari and simply loved it. You get really up close with the animals in this safari ride.
We had our meals with a direct view of the lions. The fire dance is not to be missed.
The next day we took the Rhino Package for the day safari and it's worth the money.
All in all an absolutely superb experience for us all.

Stayed 2 nights in the lodge, and it was unforgettable. I think, I became a kid again.. It was an amazing experienced to see those animals running around in front of your balcony. By just looking at them on your pj, already gives you the feeling of being a kid again. Upper lodge really was a blast. Room was so tidy and clean, strong net, wonderful staff, and yeah, delicious foods. Its not cheap, but you are on your holiday, and every moment is PRICELESS!!

Room Tip: get an upper room, best balcony to have coffee in the morning with those zebras running around in fr...
