Sarova Mara Game Camp
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 October 2012

We stayed there for two nights and everything was perfect. The food, the staff, the lodge, the game-drives. We loved it. Our lodge was a vip-lodge and we had to walk for a few minutes before we were at the dining place. But that was alright. At our lodge it was very quiet an that was very nice. We wanted to visit a Masai village but when we were there it started to rain. That was bad luck. The next day we had the same weather. It started to rain at 16.00 h.
When you visit the Masai Mara I recomand this place. We loved it.

This is the 2nd time my family has stayed here. Ken was our driver and he looked after us very well. He was constantly in touch with other drivers tracking the big game and the awesome migration. Our kids (10 &8) loved him. Staff at the beautiful lodge were very pleasant and accommodating. We had a very luxurious family tent with 2 rooms and a lounge which were kept immaculate.
Only issue was the hot water pressure in the evening but that didn't spoil the fun.
Will definitely return for more. Asante

Totally fun to ride hours and hours over bumpy dirt roads and emerge at this fully outfitted luxury lodge in the middle of nowhere. Fabulous tent-rooms with draping mosquito nets. Extensive buffets for breakfast/lunch/dinner. Cultural demonstrations and roving Maasai ambassadors. Unique organic garden and the resident gardener, who puts as much fresh produce on the menu as he can. The only thing missing on safari is exercise--due to fenced camp and limited fitness opportunities, and overwhelming food offerings, the traveller really doesn't get a good walk in (and the pool is pretty much for the youngsters).

Room Tip: Tents don't keep the mosquitos out; take your malaria medicine and deet, especially certain time...

Our family of six were there from 26th Sept to 30th. The usual impeccable service brought us back there for the 3rd time.On arrival at the air strip our driver Ken welcomed us with cold towels and a refreshing drink. The family and club tents were superb. Our full day game drives were organised by Ken who made sure that our lunch boxes and drinks was fully stocked. We ended our stay with a great massage by Grace and a surprise Birthday breakfast on their private lawnfor our son and grandson. Special thanks to Carol / 'Douglas / John / Gilbert for the food and service. Be assured that we shall return !! Asante Sana Sarova. Aftab and Manju Mombasa

Room Tip: Club Tents are the best

Visited Mara Sarova for the second year in a row. This year in August during the great migration. And did we enjoy it ! A wonderful clubtent, so the nights were very comfortable. Dikdiks nearby, who posed for some beautiful pictures without hesitation. Wonderful food and very friendly personnel. As returning guests we were treated tot a private dinner on the view deck, which was wonderful.
In the Mara we saw (of course next to the enormous herds of wildebeasts and zebra's) a lot of young animals: lion and cheetah cubs, young giraffe, young "pumba's" etc. To much to mention.
Made a lot of incredibly beautiful pictures.
At the risk of forgetting someone, we would like to thank especially Chef John (delicious pepper steaks !), Caroline, Cyrus, Ruben, Emelda and the people at the private dinner for making this again an unforgettable experience. We felt "karibu tena" once again and will certainly return !
