Mara Serena Safari Lodge

Mara Serena Safari Lodge

The wildebeest migration! Few people have not dreamt of seeing this incredible spectacle when millions of wildebeest, zebra, and other plains game (and their predators!) play their roles in the ancient drama of migration.

And it is here, in the Maasai Mara National Reserve, at the very centre of the Mara Triangle, that one finds the Mara Serena Safari Lodge. High on a hill, surrounded by the indigenous bush, with views of the savannah below and the sinuous Mara River, the lodge stands dead center of the drama that will unfold.

Designed to mirror a traditional Maasai village, all the rooms have private balconies with views into the distant African surroundings. The Manhattan-type domed huts are situated in circular groupings and have been decorated in colors and furnishings inspired by the vernacular peculiar to the Maasai. The lodge has 74 rooms of varying sizes as well as the luxurious Mara Suite. The dining area, bar, and rock-surrounded infinity pool have amazing views.

Breakfast and lunch are served buffet-style and feature a wide range of international choices, such as full English breakfast or European. Lunch will include meat, poultry, fish and vegetarian options.

Table d'hôte dinner menus include a salad buffet, soup, entrée, pudding, cheese and biscuits, and tea or coffee. There are three theme nights to look forward to: Pasta, Mongolian, and Kenyan. Also on offer is a selection of local musicians, live bands, or local traditional dancers. One particularly exciting option is “bush dining.” The lodge has an extensive wine list (both old and new-world wines), a variety of local and imported beers and spirits, and many soft drinks and local fruit juices.

It is no surprise that activities center around the three daily game drives. Specially adapted vehicles whisk adventurers across the plains and along the riverbanks in pursuit of the legendary African wildlife.
