Grounds are beautiful and the location of the tents right on the river are spectacular. You can sit out on the deck and watch the hippos and an occasional croc in the river.

Just returned from a stay at the Fairmont Mara Safari Club. I cannot express how impressed I was with the service they offered. When you arrive, you are assigned a waiter, driver for game drives and someone to service your tent. They stay with you during your entire stay and learn your likes and dislikes and greet you by name....

The location is on a northern conservancy rather than the actual park, which is highly beneficial as in the park you have to remain on the roads and the best of the animals are out of reach, whereas here the drivers take you within a sensible distance of the animals allowing excellent photographic and wonderful observation opportunities. I have just...

My husband and I recently had the extreme pleasure of staying at the Fairmont Mara Safari Club. It was an amazing experience that I recommend anyone else to take advantage of. Our room or tent was at the water's edge and we often shared our environment with 27 hippos and a few crocs. Listening to them was music to our...

“If you have mobility issues then ask for one of the tents near to the swimming pool or reception. Tent #1 is excellent!”
