Mara Serena Lodge: Wild safari destination in Kenya

Posted on January 7, 2011 | HotelsNo Comment



Welcome to the only lodge in the internationally acclaimed Masai Mara National Reserve! Nestled in the heart of the popular ‘Mara Triangle’, Mara Serena Lodge is among the premier destination for a wild safari. Perched well on a towering bushy hill looking over the savannah plains as well as the below twisting loop of the hippo-filled Mara River, the lodge is among the nation’s most dramatic wildlife showground showcasing the greatest wildlife migration of the wildebeest.

Designed to reverberate the round motif of a typical Maasai farmhouse holding manyattas as domed huts of mud, the Mara Serena Lodge well unifies the raw African wildness with the international classiness via its twin lines of rooms each offering a great vista of the serpentine Mara River. The result is a sophisticated, but still a beautifully traditional looking lodge blending well with the environment.
