This was the second stop on our 14 Safari with Micato. From the time that they picked us up in the Fairmont Toyota Land Rovers - to the time they took us back to the airstrip for the next leg on our trip is was over the top. The "tent" was incredible - very comfortable and what a view. The...

The Mara Safari club was an incredible experience. From the moment we arrived at the air strip we were graciously met by our guide who welcomed us and offered us cool drinks. Instead of rushing us to the lodge, he made several stops along the bumpy road to catch glimpses of hippos lazying by the Mara river. imagine our thrill!...

We were a family of five on our 2nd safari ever, and everything worked well. Good tents (very), spectacular setting on the riverbank /Mara river full of hippos, very good guide, great game drives, we were lucky to see a kill by a lion pride, a male leopard walking with a kill he had just achieved out of sight from...

Fairmont Mara safari club is undoubtedly a jewel of Africa - in so much as the accommodation is absolute luxury - blew my 12 year old son's mind! However, I visited here in 1999 and standards have slipped since then. To be honest the tents are faultless, the safari is amazing but after my recent visit I feel hugely let...

I returned from my 3rd trip to the Mara Safari Club in early December, and remain as impressed as always. The food and service are excellent. The "tents" clean and comfortable, and the safaris remain amazing. I'm very particular when I pay this kind of money, and I have not beendisappointed in any way.

My friends and I had a two day stay here and it was awesome! Luxury in the bush! We loved the tented camps near the river. Tents were excellent and equipped with everything to make one feel just at home. Service was nice and food was excellent! Loved the free internet and little library near the lounge! We also loved...

We (my wife and two children, 23 and 19) visited the Masai Mara in southwestern Kenya this December for part of our safari adventure. A permanent tented camp, this hotel could not have been a better start. Located at a bend in the Mara river, our tents (one with two beds, one with one) overlooked the river. Sitting on our...

My stay at Mara in September was truly a dream-come-true! I never thought I'd say I spent a week in a tent, but once you unzipped your door, you were in a luxurious Fairmont hotelroom. The food was terrific (amazing daily soups!) and the incredible staff bent over backwards to make sure you had everything you wanted/needed/imagined! But of course,...

We stayed at the Mara Safari Lodge in December for two nights at the beginning of our 12 safari. The tents were more than adequate with everything you need from robes, hair dryers, and large comfortable beds. The rooms face the river which is full of hippos and crocs lounging together on the banks of the river. The service was...
