Cabin-tent accommodations were excellent, dining superb, service impeccable. Our drives through the park were amazing and proved delightful to appreciate the great creatures in their natural environment. This location is excellent, not far from the park entrance and very close to the wildlife trails.

Our morning game drive was amazing so the location of this camp is another bonus for safaris. We will definitely be back with other family members. Also no mosquito issues in November...

This is our first time visit. We are so happy to choose this hotel. Everything is perfect. Staff services, ambiance. I am very happy to come here again. So far best in my life. Five star rating is not justified, I can give them seven stars.

Thanks once again to Sarova for their consistent superb accommodations all across Kenya. Specially in Mara they surprised us with one of the top tents from which we could see giraffes upon our arrival. Beautiful place, magnificent people, superb buffet and the best quality from Sarova.
