Mara Serena Safari Lodge Nov 11, 2009
The Mara Serena Safari Lodge lies deep within the Masai Mara National Reserve. Perched on the saddle of a hill, the Mara Serena Safari Lodge has one of the most spectacular views imaginable across the vast plains, forests and rivers that make up the Masai Mara – one of the world’s richest wildlife sanctuaries. It is on this very terrain that the annual migration takes place when millions of zebra, wildebeest
and gazelle cross the plains below, on their way to the rich new grasses of the Serengeti.
The hotel has been designed to mirror a traditional Masai village or Manyatta and all the guest rooms are located in individual domed huts grouped in a circular manner. The furnishings of each room have been
inspired by traditional Masai art and each one has a private balcony with views that stretch over the vast African landscape. The lodge has a sky-blue swimming pool perched on the edge of the hill, a restaurant that overlooks a waterhole where wildlife gather and several treatment rooms where you can enjoy a range of relaxing massages.
From the lodge you can organize your safari. Other activities they offer are bush barbecues, game drives, evening cocktail parties at the waterhole, watching the hippos and Masai dancing.
We got in late and then left right after breakfast, so I didn’t get to take advantage of everything. But they do have a great gift shop where I bought several souvenirs.
They have a traditional safari-styled restaurant/dining room that overlooks Mara Serena Safari Lodge's action-packed water hole and features a vibrant bar area, a relaxed candlelit atmosphere, and menu choices that include a broad selection of traditional safari favorites.
Other facilities include beauty therapy and massage services,
nature walks, bird watching, balloon safaris and game drives.
