The only thing that makes the guest lodges "tents" is that the walls and roof are canvas and the windows have zippers around them. There is a foundation with a tiled floor, separate dressing area, bathroom and shower. There is electricity and wi-fi, it is totally civilized, clean and comfortable. The property is located on the banks of the Mara...

I stayed at this brilliantly maintained property in September 2011 along with my colleagues on an office trip. I can never forget sleeping in a private tent thats zipped up in the night and finding a hot water bag lying close to my legs when I slipped into bed to keep me warm in the night. The location was perfect...

I really felt pampered at this retreat. The service was superb. The food was excellent. Our reserve excursions were informative and breathtaking. Our tent rivaled the accommodations at brick and mortar hotels. I would return in a heart beat

A bit more rustic than other Fairmont properties, also on the smaller side. Our tent however was great. Service at all the hotels in Africa has been excellent. The food is plentiful and good everywhere we stayed in both Kenya and Tanzania. We were with a tour, but our tents were spread all over the grounds instead of by each...

We stayed here for three nights on safari. It was a simply lovely experience. The tents are on the banks of the Mara river and we woke to the grunts of the hippos and the calls of birds. The guide who took us out each day was excellent. The hotel assigned our group the same table for meals and the...

This is a large, impersonal hotel that serves to provide food and lodging to numerous people and thus the service and amenities are impersonal and unimpressive. The food was horrible-- every meal! A buffet of whatever they have in the kitchen-- no continuity or theme to the meals (example: ham, lamb, and Spaghetti with couscous, baked beans and pita bread!...

Never thought that we would enjoy sleeping in a tent, but we did. The tents are on a fixed slab and the showers have sturdy walls. The rest of the room is a large size tent with a full size bed. It does not take one long to overlook the fact that the walls are canvas. oom has a nice...

We were in the area doing some volunteering work. Fairmont was a fantastic location to see the best the Mara had to offer. Not to busy, we went in Safari drives everyday. Our tent oversaw the river where we saw hippos play during the day. Night time sounds was the best! I loved our stay here!

When planning a trip to Africa I really kept my mind open, not knowing what to expect. We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and wanted to go all out! The Fairmont Mara Safari Club did not disappoint, from the moment you are met at the airstrip to the moment you leave you are made to feel so special by the...

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