Royal Mara Safari Lodge

The Royal Mara is an unfenced safari hotel nestled on a peninsula along the banks of the Mara River in the Mara North Conservancy.  The Royal Mara’s eight luxury guest accommodation suites - all with Mara River frontage and built on elevated wood decks with private verandas - are a blend of the classic tented safari camp with the amenities of a lodge facility; the result is an exclusive luxury tented lodge and camp truly unique to the Masai Mara.  The Royal Mara has hosted many couples and honeymooners with great success - the location, accommodations and setting in the Masai Mara safari environment make for a beautiful, romantic retreat. Royal Mara guests are spoiled as they sunbathe on open veranda chaises longes, dine along the river frontage of the camp as hippos wallow in the nearby river, and experience elegant haute cuisine on their own unique African wilderness safari.
