For those discerning travellers who like to witness some of the most fantastical spectacles on earth while still remaining in the lap of luxury, the Mara Serena Safari Lodge is the ultimate destination. This plush African safari lodge is located in the Masai Mara National Reserve, which is home to the Great Migration, and here you are offered a ringside seat to this wondrous phenomenon which occurs annually in Kenya. The lodge nestles in the shade of a hill and provides sweeping vistas of the African plains below, all the way to the Mara River teeming with crocodiles and hippo.
The lodge lies around 320 kilometres from Nairobi and access is via air or by road. Mara Serena Safari Lodge is a fine example of luxury and opulence, and is styled in local traditional décor that echoes the beauty and grounded colour palette of the surrounding nature.
The central guest bar and comfortable lounge areas provide a wonderful place for guests to unwind or to cool off in the pristine swimming pool after a dusty game drive. Magnificent and uninterrupted views flow from all the central areas and game can be seen from just about anywhere in the lodge.
Accommodation is provided in a variety of seventy-four luxury rooms and suites which form the wings of the lodge and flow outwards from the central lodge area. All accommodation is positioned for maximum views of the river below as well as ultimate privacy. Rooms are artfully adorned by a mixture of traditional Maasai décor and modern design ideas.
The enormous king-sized beds are draped in lavish mosquito nets and the marble bathrooms provide the ultimate in luxury. Each room also have a seating area with desk from where you can contemplate your activities for the next day or watch satellite television.
Activities include three game drives per day, champagne breakfast overlooking the hippo pools, hot-air balloon trips, exciting guided hikes, bird watching and lavish and romantic bush dinners. Guests can also get some exercise in the gym or enjoy a relaxing spa treatment.
