Mara Engai Lodge is a luxury safari lodge located on a quiet, hilltop glade on the Oloololo Siria Escarpment. An awesome setting for your wondrous Kenyan Safari Vacation. Overlooking the amazing Masai Mara National Reserve and Wildebeest Migration Route, with around 120km of unbroken views across the vast savannah of the Masai Mara – it is simply breathtaking. Wonder at the most amazing views over the Masai Mara and Great Migration route from your own private veranda. You are secluded from all other uproar in your spacious tent in complete privacy where the only subtle intrusion is the discrete services of the staff catering to your needs.
Due to Mara Engai's continual commitment to reducing their carbon footprint, ongoing conscious thinking and community activation, they have earned a Gold Eco-rating with Eco Tourism Kenya.
Indulge in fine dining, with delicious treats made from fresh produce from the organic gardens. Get back to nature on thrilling game drives and experience thousands of years of Maasai tradition. Then before you sink into your large comfortable bed, take a look up at the mass of twinkling stars in the clear African sky — it’s something everyone should see at least once in their lifetime.
Large tented suites nestled in the Kenyan ravine forest. Elevated to maximise the view and spaced over a large area to provide seclusion and privacy.
Luxurious toiletries are provided in the full en-suite facilities which feature twin vanities and invigorating waterfall showers.
Special occasion? Private, in-suite dining, for a romantic breakfast, lunch, afternoon high tea, champagne and canopies or an indulgent dinner overlooking the incredible views.
Sit and relax on your private veranda, the palatial tented suites all have stunning views across the Masai Mara plains or within the ravine forest.
Explore our activities and create even more memories to last a lifetime.
Not many experiences are more memorable, or as typically Kenyan, as breakfast in the bush. Setting off first you enjoy a fascinating game drive into the bush where, at one of our specially chosen breakfast sites, a full English breakfast will be cooked before you. Enjoy a glass of chilled ‘buck’s fizz’ while you savour the experience.
Organic Garden Tour
The rich volcanic soil of the escarpment provides an excellent foundation for our organic garden. We have a cleverly designed irrigation system, rainwater collection and crop rotation process to ensure fresh produce all year round. Enjoy a tour of the garden and sustainable farming plot and meet our talented gardener. You may even get the chance to pick your own fruit or veg for your dinner!
