A gift from my brothers in law, this short stay turned out to be one of the best experiences in Kenya. The camp is set just within the gates of the Mara game reserve in a location full of animals even in the dry season. The staff here are extremely well trained. World Class. Kioko, you run a great team....

There were dik diks roaming around at night and the tents were water-tight (a thunderstorm passed through one night) and well-appointed. The camp is run on...

Inspite of the low population of the Wild life during this time of the year we were able to see the big Five except the RHINO and to make it even better the friendly service, clean tents and good food at the lodge made our holiday a memorable one. Keep it up SAROVA.
