Recently spent 2 days at the camp on a work conference and stayed in the tented rooms. While we worked hard and enjoyed very good conference facilities, we were able to do 2 morning game drives and were privileged to see not only hundreds of zebra but also buffalo, springbok, warthogs, a cheetah, some beautiful birds, elephants, hyena and various...

This was a great experience while on safari. Our tent was by the little lake and only a short walk from the main lodge. It was wonderful, spacious and comfortable with all of the amenities. At night, we could hear the local small animals (some kind of a local rodent) calling each other! The food and service was terrific! Loved...

Stayed here for two nights on a Collette guided tour. The Masai Mara itself is the mecca for wildlife lovers and this game camp is in the middle of it. Food was excellent for breakfast lunch and dinner. A great variety of food for everyone. We saw all the wildlife we possibly could see and some of it was right...

The Sarova Mara Game Camp is located in the Masai Mara National Reserve park, 240 km south west from Nairobi, very close to the Serengeti park from Tanzania. The driving from Nairobi there takes 5,5-6 hours. Once inside the Game Camp, you are safe and secure, surrounded by electrified fences, inside a lush forest. The tents are luxurious, just like...

The highlight of this trip was seeing 14 lions, including an Aslan-like male walking across the savannah on his own! Note that this camp is far from the Mara river, but we were amazed at how much we saw. The hotel guides are fantastic. The hotel is nice, a bit overpriced given how small the standard tents are, but they...

Love the Sarova hotels in Kenya. This was our first Safari and had heard about these amazing tented sites...I'd call it glamping! Hardwood gloors, comfortable netted beds. Tile bathrooms with showers! The groups were beyond expectations as the site was on a river with baboons, crocs and all kinds of wild life. We loved it
