The Amani Mara Lodge is an experience of a lifetime. We were personally greeted by the owner, Ashif, and the manager, Anna, upon our arrival. Our drive in to the Lodge was extraordinary as we saw all types of wildlife, including a pride of elephants. The staff at the Amani were attentive, kind and informative. We enjoyed the personal service...

We are a family who lives in Kenya. We have been to Masai Mara many times. We spent 3 nights in Amani Mara Lodge and it was a great experience. The management is very attentive and present all the time working on solving any issues. Alex was our waiter and he hasn't saved any effort to make our meals. The...

Upon arrival we were greeted by the owner - Asif - and his staff, offered refreshing fruit juice and towels to wash our hands. From there on it just got better. The accommodation is unique in every sense of the word. Made to look like a large tent, our room had ample room for us and our 2 children. The...

Thank you for your kind review. It was a pleasure hosting your wonderful family here at Amani Mara . We hope to see you back in the Mara and next time make it even more pleasurable for you and more quiet than last due to the larger group. Enjoy your remaining stay in Africa. Regards Ashif

We stayed at Amani Mara for 3 nights during our E. Africa Trip. This is an OWNER MANAGED hotel with exceptional quality of service. Having been home for more than 5 weeks now; we still yearn for the hospitality and friendship extended to us during our stay- Joe the Masai Guy, Ashif the owner and the whole crew. This property...

Amani Mara is special in so many ways it's hard to know where to begin! It's located minutes from Masai Mara with breathtaking views of the wildlife - lions, leopards, cheetahs, elephants, crocodiles, hippos, zebras, giraffe, deer, antelope, water buffalo, wildebeest and more! The lodge itself is surrounded by protected land where it's often possible to enjoy views of these...

Having read the comments from other visitors there isn't anything new I can add but agree wholeheartedly with their sentiments. This lodge is outstanding. Not only is the accommodation unique but the warmth shown by Ashif and the team was greatly appreciated. Whilst we were there we hit pay day and I needed access to the Internet. Ashif drove me...

SECOND time to visit Amani Mara since we luckily discovered it, and this trip exceeded even the exceptionally high standards we experienced the first time. First-class game viewing (including from the lodge itself, and from the rooms themselves too), first-class hospitality, innovative and eco-friendly (and very spacious and comfortable) accommodation and architecture, stunning location, attentive staff, knowledgeable and flexible owner/management,...

If one takes the time to read the other reviews you will soon realize that Amani Mara Lodge is indeed very unique and indeed a special place far ahead of it's time. Those of us who have enjoyed the pleasure of having time with Ashif Suleman one quickly questions why all lodges aren't doing what is going on here. Ashif...

Amani Mara was just spectacular. Amazing scenic setting with a view of the river and hippo pool. All natural environment with no fences providing an adventure and experience in the Mara that can not be forgotten. The owner is an environmentalist with the mindset and ambition to preserve the natural beauty of the Mara without affecting the animals habitat. The...
