Fairmont Mara Safari Club
is located in the Mara Ol Chorro
sector of the Maasai Mara
in Southwest Kenya
This lodge is operated by Kingdom Hotel Investments, whose portfolio also includes various Four Seasons and Movenpick hotels.
As you might therefore expect, this is quite a large and commercial property, operated to international hotel standards.
Public areas are cavernous and, in some respects, quite impressive. The 50 tented rooms are arranged alongside a sweeping bend in the river which seems to contain an extraordinary number of hippos.
Mara Safari Club is definitely more hotel than safari lodge and as such tends to service the upper end of the packaged market. We might possibly recommend it to guests who really are nervous about getting too involved with the wild. or who are particularly passionate about hippos.
