Location

This superb safari offering enjoys a prime position in the Masai Mara National Reserve – right in the centre of the Mara Triangle. This unique region is famed for its high density of wildlife yet, thanks to its remote setting, remains beautifully untouched. It’s something taken full advantage of by the lodge, its hilltop perch offering sweeping views over the savannah and down to the hippos of the Mara River. What’s more, you’ll be ideally poised to take in the ‘Greatest Wildlife Show on Earth’ – the famed wildebeest migration. Watch as thundering hoofs prick the ears of hungry predators.

Accommodation

Perfectly evocative, accommodation at the Mara Serena Safari Lodge comes styled after traditional manyatta – Maasai huts. As such, rooms radiate out from the centre, staggered so that each enjoys secluded and uninterrupted views of the Mara River below. The steward-served suites’ private balconies are particularly good. And, the local inspiration doesn’t stop with the layout; swirling patterns echo the wilds of the bushland and vibrant motifs showcase Maasai tribal art at its finest. Marble bathrooms, satellite TV and complimentary WiFi ensure you won’t be without your mod cons.

Dining

The spectacular views – and the Maasai style – continue into the dining room. It’s a homely affair, with open-plan seating paired with buffet-style breakfasts and lunches. However, dinner mixes in table d’hôte indulgences, with a wide array of gourmet choices. Expect homemade pasta, indulgent barbecues and Kenyan delicacies, including locally sourced kale and perfectly roasted joints. You’ll also have a choice of atmospheric dining venues, from romantic poolside settings to dinner in the bush, overlooking everything from the savannah to the hippo pools.

Facilities

To complement the superb dining, be sure to end your night with a drink at the bar. Whether it’s cocktails, prime Kenyan coffee or new- and old-world wines, there’s a sundowner for everyone. But, for the most atmospheric of African evenings, retire to the campfire as the night sky twinkles on high. That said, there are still plenty of modern comforts to enjoy, with the rock-surround pool, fitness centre and spa all set to yet more Masai-Mara views. There’s everything from sauna and steam rooms to reflexology sessions and massage treatments. Or, you could simply relax on the sun deck.
