I spent two nights at Amani Mara in Octobre 2012 – unfortunately only two nights. The lodge is incredible. It is situated in the Masai Mara but „off the beaten track“ in a peaceful conservation area and was built with remarkable attention to detail and blends in perfectly with the environment. The owners, Ashif and Shelina, personally take very good...

Wonderful decor within the building. A great atmosphere - calm, peaceful, very much at one with the natural surroundings. The service was also wonderful. My sister and her fiance...

It is a small lodge, so we felt very personalized attention. We had an opportunity to go on a Masai-guided nature walk, go to a Masai village, had a...

The family is well respected in the community, passionate about conservation and has a wealth of knowledge about the local eco-system, culture and tradition. Unlike places where you are just another guest, the Amani Mara ensures you are welcomed...
