My wife Sheila and I spent seven nights at Mara Engai. What an incredible experience it was! We were met at the airstrip by Salim. The game drive back to the lodge gave us a taste of what we could expect during our stay. The Masai greeting we were given when we arrived at the lodge immediately made us feel...

Excellent view on the Mara with animals all around and even in the camp. Lions and hyenas very nearby. Many elephants. Exciting climb to the lodge with our driver. Warm Maasai welcome. Perfect accommodation.

Could the Maasai be any nicer? I don't think so. Such a beautiful, natural place with staff who has only your welfare in mind. Our "tent" was luxurious with hardwood floors, two mahogany queen sized beds, desk, sitting area, lovely bathroom with a double sink and a waterfall shower. The game drive guide had eagle eyes and lead us on...

This inviting boutique style lodge with individual cabins (fashioned to look like tents) is on the top of the Oloololo Escarpment overlooking the vast Masai Mara National Reserve. Getting there from one of the local airstrips is easy to achieve as Mara Engai will send their specialized safari vehicle to get you on time. Be prepared to see many animals...

After weeks we are still thinking about this wonderful place. From the beginning it was a very warm welcome from the staff and the Masai's. We come as visitors and left like a family. The Mara Engai is on a hill so that you have a breathtaking view about the Masai Mara. It's a feeling you can't describe with words...
