The Fairmont Safari Club is located along the Mara river, so you don't even need to leave the camp to see hippos (there are several hippo viewing spots), monkeys and other animals. The camps themselves are very well designed and are extremely comfortable, both the queen and double bed arrangements. The food was very good (we had full board which...

Low stress safari. Make sure you get Samuel as your driver. He is amazing. Food was good and the rooms were great. There is only Internet in the lodge and no American tv. Huge diversity of wildlife. Not a lot of extracurriculars. There is a pool. This vacation is all about the animals. Don't plan on sleeping in. Safari takes...

Didn't know what to expect in a tent. I was very surprised. Lived waking up to the sound of the Hippos. Food was amazing as well as entertainment from locals. The safari rides was probably the coolest thing I have ever done. Saw all of big 5 plus a lion kill. Would love to go back.
