My husband and I stayed at the Fairmont for 3 nights in mid-January and found it to be a fantastic and unforgettable experience. We were greeted with warm towels and a welcome drink at the airstrip and introduced to our game driver Moses, who had been assigned to us for our stay. The property is only a few minutes drive...

I've been throughout Africa to many a gorgeous African lodge and on more than 25 game drives, but what sets the Mara apart is the scenery - wide open and dotted with Acacia trees (hence the name "Mara") - simply majestic. Very little bush - instead, as one person in our safari jeep put it, it's "all very Lion King."...

Beautiful property for safari in Maasai Mara Reserve. The tents were located near close to the Mara River allowing for easy viewing of hippopotamus by day. The architecture of the lodge has a rustic feel with a stone fireplace, tribal fabrics and beautifully carved furniture. The "glamping" tents are very well appointed and comfortable for enjoying nature and listening to...

We arrived on 23rd December and we were well received. Check in was fairly quick, the cold towel and juice was really a good gesture. Our tent (no. 45) was overlooking the Mara River but it was about 10 minutes walk from the reception. There is a golf cart if you are in need of one for purposes of it...

We arrive at Fairmont Mara Safari Club at noon. The reception area is designed perfectly well; it is spacious with well balanced parts of armchairs and coffee tables put cleverly so you don' t have to meander among them if you just want to pass. Off the reception area there is a quiet reading room. Friendly welcome, hot towels but...

when you have a tent/room overlooking hippo point - it's just amazing on it's own. but then you have great food (buffet and a la cart) - doubles amazing experience. and then you have your safari rides with guide like Evans - and you're getting the best of the best of Masai Mara. the place to come back 100%
