Located on Ol Donyo Oseiya hill, in the western ‘Mara Triangle’ sector of the Maasai Mara National Reserve, the 74-room Mara Serena Safari Lodge is one of the oldest and largest properties in the Mara ecosystem. Dating from 1973, this substantial hotel is part of the international Serena Hotels group whose largest shareholder is the Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development, and it has the full roster of hotel facilities.

Our view of Mara Serena Safari Lodge

With its dramatic location, commanding a view of the Mara River that provides, as Serena describes it “A Ringside Seat For The Greatest Show On Earth", the Mara Serena is a very popular and well-known base for Mara safaris. This is especially the case during the migration, when it can feel very busy and somewhat impersonal here. As expected, we found the driver-guides’ knowledge of the Triangle very proficient, the very small rooms comfortable and the meals reasonably good for a large, price-conscious lodge.
