Savour the exceptional Saruni cuisine that is served around the long table and uses fresh, locally grown and organic produce in inventive ways. Alternatively, meals can be taken in the Mara bush among the wild animals, with birdsong and animal calls as a backdrop - a dining experience like no other.
By separate arrangement, a candlelight dinner can be served on your own verandah should you want a bit of privacy for a special occasion.
The thatched central guest area at Saruni Mara offers up a bar area, indoor dining, a lounge with a fireplace, a gift shop, and one of the better libraries we have seen in a lodge or camp.

Morning and afternoon (or full-day) game drive options through the wildlife-rich Mara North and Lemek Conservancies are part and parcel of one's safari experience.

Kenya safari ambassador tributeIn memoriam Honey; Honey was famous for jumping into vehicles to obtain a better view of her idyllic world - the Masai Mara Game Reserve. This special cheetah was killed on the 17th of February 2007 in full view of her three remaining cubs.
Impressions Of KenyaKenya’s wildlife remains at the heart of its attractions, yet there is much more to discover in this fascinating country outside the game reserves. You can climb the slopes of Mount Kenya to find tropical ice on the Equator, or explore the coral reefs of the Mombasa coast.
Explore The Masai Mara By BalloonIt was one of those rare moments where you take in the majesty of nature in complete silence, disturbing nothing, saying nothing. In Kenya last month, I had the great pleasure of a balloon safari over the Masai Mara organised by the excellent and highly professional Governors Company.
Giraffe Manor ReviewLocated in the southern suburbs of Nairobi is an English manor house. When it was built, the country was unclaimed bush rampant with African wildlife. The home of Karen Blixen is nearby who posthumously lends her name to this suburb, Karen.
Hells Gate KenyaI had visions of being trampled by buffalo, stalked by lions, or, given the extreme humidity and daytime temperatures, falling prey to one of the thousands of vultures who call Hell's Gate National Park their home. But our guide assured me that it would be fun.
