Our tour group was switched here last minute due to the road being flooded to our original hotel. We were all pleasantly surprised! The staff was very attentive and the facilities were very comfortable. There were lots of interesting animals on the property and it was a short ride to our daily safari drives. The rooms were clean and spacious....

Situated in the stunning Masai Mara Game Reserve, Mara Simba Lodge exceeded all of my expectations.

Every single member of staff was extremely friendly and welcoming, they all took extremely good care of us from the minute we arrived....

This lodge is located outside the Masai Mara park and on a tributary to the Mara River. If you accept this is a wilderness lodge, and are aware of the limitations of it location, then it is absolutely brilliant. However be aware: 1.
