The Mara Serena Safari Lodge lies deep within the Masai Mara National Reserve.
The Mara Serena is the ultimate safari destination, it stands centre-stage to one of Africa's most dramatic wildlife arenas and has a ringside seat for the greatest wildlife show on Earth, the legendary migration of the wildebeest.
Drawing its inspiration from the traditional Maasai cultural motif of a cluster of domed, mud-coloured huts encircled by a 'Boma' of brushwood, the Masai Mara Budget Lodge offers a rare blend of raw African splendour and sumptuous sophistication.
The essentially ethnic décor also draws on a vibrant colour-palette of sun-burst colours, embellished by a unique selection of Maasai art to create the look and feel of a traditional bush encampment. The lodge features individual rooms, each with their own balcony and view of eternity, a sky-blue swimming pool and a spectacular restaurant, overlooking a water hole where a fantasia of creatures collect to drink.
Styled to mirror the circular motif of a traditional Maasai "Manyatta", the lodge has been designed to blend international sophistication with raw African beauty.
The wide-spaced and secluded rooms have been sensitively designed so as to blend seamlessly into the landscape whilst offering magnificent Mara-vistas from their private verandas. As for the interiors, individually styled in exuberant bush colours they feature spacious bathrooms and the calm sophistication of a world-class hotel.
The traditional safari-styled dining room overlooks Mara Serena Safari Lodge 's action-packed water hole and features a vibrant bar area, a relaxed candlelit atmosphere and menu choices that include a broad selection of imaginative and traditional safari favorites.

The word "Safari" means "journey" in Kiswahili but since the days of the "Great White Hunters" a "Safari" has evolved to mean a spectacular bush adventure that takes in sightings of a glorious selection of game, flora, fauna and bird life whilst delivering awe inspiring scenery, show-stopping views and wildlife encounters of the most exciting kind.
One of the most magically memorable of the Mara experiences, a balloon safari allows you drift in silence above the splendor of the plains, dip down to visit the hippo pools of the Mara River, enjoy a bird's eye view of the wildlife theater below and descend to a scenic champagne breakfast cooked and served in the middle of the bush.
