Spent 5 days in Ngerende on honeymoon in November. This is the most amazing place I have ever been to! The welcome dance, the 5* food, the cultural talks all amazing. Add to that fantastic game drives with knowledgable guides who genuinely care and you can't get better! The staff seem to genuinely love their jobs and they take every...

Just Wow! We booked 1 night in Riverview and 2 nights at Lakeview in the Wild, followed by 2 nights at the Island Lodge. From the booking (thank you Catherine) through to the trip back to JK International Airport everything exceeded our expectations and wildest dreams. We read a review somewhere that said Ngerende's mission was to recreate the Safari...

James and Arbela;we are Kenyans. We took Ngerende's honeymoon package (our wedding was Dec 21). Everything is what you see or read. From Wilson airport to the lodge we have never been treated with such royalty. The whole service package at Ngerende lodge is world class. We are sure we would never have a superb and beautiful honeymoon anywhere else...

We visited Ngerende in Jan.2013. From all our trips around the world (we travel a lot), the Ngerende experience remains the most amazing and unlike anything any other. The staff, the food, the atmosphere make you forget about any other standards. Special thanks to Evans who made our stay so comfortable in all respects. When we needed a tea or...

From the moment we arrived at Ngerende we were treated with such generosity and warmth, I never wanted to leave! The ambience is soothing, "tents" with fireplace, covered porch, and a better closet than I have at home! Each evening upon return we found a hot bath drawn for us, scented with oils, overlooking the river with mama and baby...

I cannot begin to explain how FANTASTIC Ngerende Lodge and Ngerende in the Wild is - the 200 character minimum does not allow the descriptors required ! The setting is breath-taking; the staff hands down are the best I have encountered in my years of traveling in 70 countries; the accommodation is beautifully appointed, luxurious without losing the essence of...

Ngerende Island Lodge is just PERFECTION !! Everything was superb from a wonderful greeting with the Masai to a sad (I did not want to leave) departure.

This was our second visit to Ngerende and we loved it, just like last time. We went back because the staff went above and beyond in every way possible, such as completely revising the dinner menu after we mentioned that we would like to try local food. We requested Stephen as our guide again, and he again proved encyclopedic in...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ngerende Island Lodge has only 7 luxury en-suite canvas and wood suites all with raised platforms giving panoramic views of the Mara River and the woods on the opposite bank. Each suite has polished Mahogany floors (including the terrace) and is very spacious providing open plan sleeping and living area complete with wood fire, a separate bathroom providing both Villeroy & Boch massage shower, open air bath (if desired) hand wash basins and flushing toilet. Comfortable seating is provided both in the living area and on the terrace so that the true tranquility of the lodge can be best appreciated. The distance between each suite has been maximised to reduce any risk of disturbance that may be caused by other guests. There is one honeymoon suite isolated from the main lodge, has a private plunge pool and Jacuzzi and has stunning views of the Mara river. Lovely touches as flowers on the bed, fire in the suites, bubble bath with essential oil prepared by your personal butler, hot-water bottle set Ngerende Island Lodge apart from the rest providing a memorable experience. The lodge has been designed to complement the safari experience so as to give comfort, luxury and service naturally. There is an abundance of wildlife both on the Conservation Ranch and of course within the Masai Mara Game Reserve to include Lion, Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Hippos and many others. A feature of the Conservation Ranch is an exclusive project to rear the White Rhino so that they can take their place back in the Mara society to which they belong in greater numbers. Over 180 varieties of birds have been spotted within the lodge itself and there are 3 Hippo Pods strategically located around the lodge. ... more   less
