Mara Serena Safari Lodge
Sharon Pritt from Cumbria
“May my mother and I take this opportunity to thank you all so much for such an amazing stay. The room was so comfortable, the food fantastic with lots of choice for two vegetarians. We had an absolutely amazing time and look forward to coming back.”
A ringside seat for the greatest show on earth.
Located at the very centre of the famous ‘Mara Triangle' of the world-renowned Masai Mara National Reserve, the Mara Serena Safari Lodge is the ultimate safari destination. Set high on a bush-cloaked hill with long views over the savannah and down to the winding coils of the hippo-filled Mara River, it stands centre-stage to one of Africa's most dramatic wildlife arenas, with a ringside seat for the ‘greatest wildlife show on earth', the legendary migration of the wildebeest.
Styled to echo the circular motif of a traditional Maasai manyatta, the lodge blends international sophistication with raw African beauty, while featuring twin rows of individual rooms, each with its own view of the famous Mara River. The central bar and dining areas enjoy spectacular views, as does the rock-surround swimming pool. Each luxuriously-presented room is accommodated in its own stand-alone modular unit, with uninterrupted views, private balcony and spacious seating area. Uniquely-presented in swirling patterns of savannah-yellow and bush-tones, each room features Maasai-inspired design-motifs, king-sized beds (or luxurious twins), lavish all-encompassing mosquito-curtaining, marble bathroom (with walk-in shower), writing/vanity unit, and out-thrust seating area.
All rooms offer:
- Ceiling fan
- Telephone and WiFi connectivity
- 24-hour room service
- Complimentary mineral water and toiletries
- Valet, laundry, shoe-shine
- Hair dryers and safes (from reception)
- Babysitting services, cots, additional beds, children's menus
- Foreign exchange, travel and 24-hour on-call medical services
- 240V/3-pin (square) sockets and shaver socket
The Maasai-inspired dining room overlooks both the rooms and the pool and offers magnificent views across the plains and down to the river. Decorated with traditional scarlet Maasai cloaks and spears, it offers open-plan seating and a relaxed atmosphere. Linked to the dining room is a welcoming bar area, which also offers exterior seating around the panoramic pool. Breakfast and lunch are presented in buffet-style and feature a wide range of international choices. In typical safari style, the lodge offers a ‘full English Breakfast' as well as European options while lunch menus will typically include meat, poultry, fish and vegetarian options. Dinner offers a table d'hôte menu featuring a salad buffet, soup, entrée, pudding, cheese and biscuits and tea or coffee. Vegetarian options are always available. The majority of the meat and dairy products, as well as the fruits and vegetables are sourced from the communities that surround the reserve.
