The Fairmont Mara Safari Club is a top notch hotel in the Mara North Conservancy in the Maasai Mara National Reserve. This hotel has become very dear to us for it’s amazing location, beauty and especially, their great staff and exceptional customer service. In our previous blog, we mentioned our safari tour-guide driver, Henry. Henry was absolutely wonderful. Starting with his over 10 years experience in game drives in the area, his personality makes you want to stay forever. He has definitely won a place in our hearts for as long as we live. Anne, at the reception, was also astounding in helping us with whatever we needed. What made our experience in Kenya that much better was the fact that everyone was friendly and eager to help at all times. No matter if it was first thing in the morning or the middle of the night. So today, I will be writing a review on our experience staying in this hotel.

And, this might be true to some extent. We, ourselves, had postponed our trip because we worried we’d get bored for the same reasons. You see, we’re the type of people who like to stay active, even on vacation. So, naturally, we assumed just because it was a small island that there would be nothing to do. Boy, were we wrong…
