We took a flight from Wilson airport and reached Masai Mara. The staff from Fairmont welcomed us near the airstrip. The hotel is located nearby at the banks of Mara river. We were placed in a tent which was comfortable in all respects. We experienced thunderstorm and heavy rains in the nights but tent was very well secured. The breakfast...

Jambo! My dad and I visited the Fairmont Mara from Feb 17-19 and we really had a once in a lifetime experience. We've both done our fair share of traveling and we both said that staying here and experiencing the Mara was probably our favorite experience! The grounds and tents were beautiful and incredibly comfortable, we only wish we could...

This was a trip of the life time. If you are looking for a holiday in Masai Mara look no where else. This place is a best combination of ethenic Mara authenticity, luxury, comfort and food! The game drives are planned best to see all the big 5's and be prepared to get wealth of knowledge about The flora and...

I am addicted to this place. It is the beauty of the Mara, the unforgettable animals and the incredible staff and accommodation which make it the place where my heart is. The tents follow the curve of the river Mara, so day or night you can hear the hippos "laughing" at you or the screech of the hyrax at night...

Our luxurious "tent" with private deck overlooked the River Mara oxbow, where dozens of hippos cruised by each evening to graze, and returned following the exact same path each morning. Relaxed, friendly service, the grounds are maintained as a park within. A preserve. Our guide and driver Jeremiah was the best. We saw everything-- total of 26 different mammals, including...

Our game driver John was the best part of our vacation. He stopped when ever my wife wanted a picture A- LOT. He found animals i could not see. The food was great and the free time worked out to rest and not feel rushed. This was one of best vacations we have had. Thanks to all the great staff

“If you have mobility issues then ask for one of the tents near to the swimming pool or reception. Tent #1 is excellent!”
