This was the setting for Born Free, Out of Africa, To Walk With Lions...my Favorite Sarova Lodge! Our chalet looked out at a red gorge where baboons, crocs, and other wildlife gather...a page out of Nat Geo! Beautiful landscaping, great food. Couldn't ask for anything better.

This is a serene and natural environment with the hote located along the River Nyiro. This is ideal for holiday with family, friends or colleagues. The river is great with lots of fish even at the doorstep of the conference. I learned that five quail egges make an ommlette

Stayed 2 nights of our photo safari here. Largest issue was NO WiFi in the rooms and in fact it was only available within a 2 foot radius of the reception desk. A survey to management elicited a response of "working on it". Otherwise, the hotel is lovely with a great gift shop, upstairs buffet dining with great food selection...

I never get tired of Shaba. It is one place you connect with God. Nature has never been real like what it is in Sarova shaba. Excellent is an under statement. The service is beyond words.

We stayed at the hotel for six nights and the experience was simply breathtaking! The place is adjacent to the River Mara and the cottages were very spacious and clean. The customer service was on another level; the staff were very welcoming. They even baked us a cake on our last day at the hotel and offered a bottle of...

Visited by end of year, good party planned by the hotel staff, the Manager Kioko, was always there to ensure good attention. Good food, accommodation, and employees are encouraged to help, talk and interact with guest. It was a great experience. We had our driver, and every day saw plenty of animals.

We used a local travel agent- Bonfire Adventures to book a 2-night stay over the New Year period. I was worried about the kind of service we might get because of the crowds, but I was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent, and great variety, fresh fruit included. The staff were friendly and attentive most of the time- despite the...

Oh my, where do I begin, the stay was incredible. The hotel is situated in an oasis, multiple springs run through the hotel flowing into the ewaso nyiro river which is a few meters away.
