The camp is not only called luxury it is it in a way which is still authentic and not over decorated or without style. All is in wood also the floors and rustic style. Mara Rianta is wonderful located at the river site within several curves of the river. Hippos go in and out and you will hear them at... More

This luxury camp is authentically rustic with outstanding service. Many luxury camps I have been to, try to emulate the 5 star city-based hotels with over the top decorating, expensive amenities and synthetic luxury. Not Mara Rianta. This camp is wonderfully comfortable in its beautiful and unique setting poised above the Mara river and chaperoned by its large family of... More

Wildlife has always been my passion. It only completes when you visit Africa. We picked Masai Mara, Kenya (our first safari trip) and Neptune Mara Rianta as our home for 4 nights. I have to say that it was a lifetime experience! Would want to go back someday. Located in the Mara North Conservation, it provides us with unforgettable memory... More

The camp is beautiful and cozy with hot water, wi-fi and even butler services. I mostly was impressed with quality of food, and small extras like wake-up call and coffee / hot chocolate in bed, hot water bottle for the bed, butler service push button… it makes a huge difference. The camp is located next to the river with resident... More

From beginning to end, our time at Mara Rianta was exceptional. I could not recommend it more highly.

The hotel is amazing!! Very well located across the river from where we could see a lot of hippos. The room (tent) is big enough for a family of 4. The staff was really friendly and our Ranger very kind and prone to transform each game in a fantastic adventure for our kids. The food is also fine!!
