Sarova Mara Game Camp

Reviewed 17 May 2011

We stayed here in April 2011 as part of our Kenya safari.

This was the last hotel we stayed and so we had a fair idea of what to expect and the whole facility did exceed our expectation. Located about 5 kms inside from the main gate of the Masai Mara, this nice property is quite big and spacious. They have a very nice bar with cable TV, huge restaurant and a very nice swimming pool. They also have a small putting area for golfers.

Majority of their staff were very efficient and courteous. Some of them remember your name even if you are staying only for a short while and come across always as pleasing personalities.

we stayed in one of their standard tents and that by itself was much better than some other camps. The furnishing was tastefully and colorfully done with enough space for everything and the bathroom was very clean and bright.

The food was fabulous and was one of the best food we had in our entire trip. The buffet was huge and it had a lot of things for a person from any background.

The property was huge and we saw few mouse deers roaming around freely inside the compound.

The security was tight with someone around every group of tents without really affecting privacy.

Overall a very good choice while in Masai Mara.

Tented rooms are great. Ours was just a standard tent, but was still lovely. Food was some of the best we had in 15 days. Staff were lovely, pool was small but very clean and refreshing. Good location - saw everything we could possibly want withing a 45 minute drive at max.

My family (wife and 7 year old daughter) visited Kenya from the 1st to the 8th of April 2011. This was our first time. We spent 1 night in Nairobi, 2 nights in Masai Mara, 2 nights in Nakuru and 2 nights in Amboseli in that order. Our stay at the Sarova Mara Game Camp was simply fabulous. The service we received was great. The tented camp room we stayed in was better than some of the hotel rooms that are on offer these days. Choice of food was good. However, they kept repeating more or less the same menu everyday. All meals are buffets. Overall a very pleasant experience.

After a volunteer build in the northern part of Kenya (Bungoma Region), our group of 10 volunteers plus our 2 drivers spent two nights at this gorgeous hotel in November. The rooms were fantasic, each tent is essentially in its own nook of the grounds, with a view of either some vegetation or a small river, with very comfortable, large beds, plenty of storage for unpacking your suitcases, and a very elegantly designed bathroom, especially considering the walls are essentially tents. We went on 4 safaris while we we stayed there, and got to see all of Kenya's big five animals! We even saw a cheetah and her cub minutes after she killed an impala, so her cub could eat. Overall, my experience at this hotel could not have been made any better. I would be very reluctant to stay anywhere else but here!
