The Mara experience has remained the once-in-a-lifetime dream of safari lovers. Natural home to the 'Big 5' game, a safari to Kenya cannot be said to be complete without it.
During the months of August to November, thousands of visitors go to the Masai Mara to witness one of the most spectacular phenomena on earth. Stretching as far as the eye can see, a teeming mass of zebra, wildebeest, and topi, trailed by scavengers make way into the Mara plains from the Serengeti, in what is known as the Great Migration. It is estimated that over 2 million animals take part in the journey.
The Mara Simba Lodge sits overlooking a dramatic bend on the bank of the Talek, a tributary of the Mara River, gently blending into the surrounding wilderness. Stretching almost a kilometer along the river the grounds on the bank remain in their virgin condition, while the landscaped gardens filled with indigenous trees at the back attract a great variety of birds and butterflies.
The lodge was designed to complement its surroundings and is decorated in Masai traditional style. Wide, well-lit pathways connect the main guest areas and rooms.
The 84 en-suite guest rooms are arranged in clusters of 6. Each spacious room opens onto its own private veranda with uninterrupted views across the river.
The dining area, where a delicious cuisine of succulent meat dishes and vegetarian menus are served, and the bar, each have stone fireplaces, focal points in the cool of the evening.
After game drives or a bush walk, the large, sparkling swimming pool invites you to cool down from the African sun and relax. Night time floodlit viewing, from the comfort of chairs set on the wide, open veranda fronting the lounge and dining area, may reveal an elusive leopard across the silvery water.
