We tried for weeks to book our accommodation through the Mara River Safari Lodge website however it was down the whole time. I emailed the safari park advising of this and our intent to book accommodation at the lodge however did not receive a reply. Needing to book this, we found the rooms were available on the Agoda website so...

This is a good family experience for 2 days. We were busy a full day with the activities provided. It was good to see how much they care for the animals and our rooms were clean and nice. It's great to wake up to the nearby zebras and ostriches. I would have appreciated the tram through the park to be...

We visited this place as we wanted a night safari. We had booked the tandala suite room. Animals do roam below your room but you need to throw the carrots a long way so as to feed them. The room was good. View- excellent. Comfort- excellent. Toiletries- excellent. The rooms are cosy as well. Bathroom is fancy with natural light...

We stayed on the 3 day 2 night package and found the hotel and park very enjoyable. Staying at the hotel was fun having all the animals outside of your window to feed with food supplied by the hotel. It was nice to be able to go and do a couple of hours in the park and then go back...

Stayed in tandala room. Very african theme, nicely decorated into a safari style. However if you are looking for a very clean room, this place is not suitable for u. Be prepared to see bugs in the room, but not a problem for me as we are staying so close to nature. Aircon and heater works well and bed was...

Loved it!!!! As an animal lover... truly enjoyed the experience... Getting to see the animals close enough during the day and nights... You get to feed the herbivore animals from your balcony, throwing over the balcony for them to eat the carrots and fruits... For the carnivore feeding theres a caged bus tour thats very exciting as well.. Kids will...

Seriously, this title is not fair to the place as who won't expect none at such places of nature, but my family did not expect THAT much of all varieties. So this is a caution for the faint-hearted and those who are super-conscious about cleanliness. All else = perfect. Room = very nice, get one with a view of the...
