This is a serene and natural environment with the hote located along the River Nyiro. This is ideal for holiday with family, friends or colleagues. The river is great with lots of fish even at the doorstep of the conference. I learned that five quail egges make an ommlette

Stayed 2 nights of our photo safari here. Largest issue was NO WiFi in the rooms and in fact it was only available within a 2 foot radius of the reception desk. A survey to management elicited a response of "working on it". Otherwise, the hotel is lovely with a great gift shop, upstairs buffet dining with great food selection...

Wow what a location, awesome, brilliant - I could add more superlatives but they just cannot explain how wonderful and lovely this place is. The staff are friendly, the food is lovely, the rooms are exceptional.......... I could go on, but the big thing here is get out to see the wildlife, see Africa as we are meant to see...

I never get tired of Shaba. It is one place you connect with God. Nature has never been real like what it is in Sarova shaba. Excellent is an under statement. The service is beyond words. The food, out of this world. My family want to come back over and over again. The staff despite coming from a very busy...

We stayed at the hotel for six nights and the experience was simply breathtaking! The place is adjacent to the River Mara and the cottages were very spacious and clean. The customer service was on another level; the staff were very welcoming. They even baked us a cake on our last day at the hotel and offered a bottle of...

Visited by end of year, good party planned by the hotel staff, the Manager Kioko, was always there to ensure good attention. Good food, accommodation, and employees are encouraged to help, talk and interact with guest. It was a great experience. We had our driver, and every day saw plenty of animals.

We used a local travel agent- Bonfire Adventures to book a 2-night stay over the New Year period. I was worried about the kind of service we might get because of the crowds, but I was pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent, and great variety, fresh fruit included. The staff were friendly and attentive most of the time- despite the...

Oh my, where do I begin, the stay was incredible. The hotel is situated in an oasis, multiple springs run through the hotel flowing into the ewaso nyiro river which is a few meters away. The moment we arrived, the staff were super kind and immediately ushered to our room which turns out to be very spacious. The room is...

We stayed at sarova shaba as a family during the new year celebrations. It was a great experience. Check in was pretty fast which was welcome after a hot drive to the hotel. Staff very courteous and helpful. Great selection of food during meal times especially the fruit bar. The climax of it all was the bush dinner on new...

Awesome place, small haven. Beautiful property, attention to details especially in room maintenance. The lawns are very well manicured to give you a great ambience for peace of mind. We had a 9 months baby, chef and team ensured our baby got our preferred choice of meal. So don't pack frozen food. Last but not least, great team led by...
