The Mara Engai is perched high above the Masai Mara plain just like an eagle's nest and the view from the main lodge and most of the tents is absolutely amazing! And the ever smiling staff is a sight for sore eyes at the end of a tiring day of bouncing around the Masai Mara Reserve. The 3 people who made our stay particularly enjoyable were - Raju the sous chef and William and Sammy who were part of the service team in the restaurant. They are an asset to the Lodge.

Room Tip: Tent 20 commands a fantastic view of the Masai Mara.

Since this lodge is located on top of a hill the ride to this place is in itself a very thrilling experience. The staff is extremely courteous, welcoming and make you feel at home. The chef interacted with us whenever we were at the restaurant and made customised meals for us which was top notch quality. Many ingredients they used was sourced from an organic garden maintained by them. The tents were huge and luxurious, very well maintained and felt like a palace. We were taken on the safari on 6*6 swiss army vehicles which were great to ride in. The farewell bid by the staff was very surprising and their overall hospitality made us feel special and lucky to have chosen this place.
