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.
Lions, elephants, hyenas, leopards, monkeys, gazelle and antelopes galore, crocodiles, wildebeest, zebras… The list goes on and on of animals you see on a daily basis when on safari. It is truly amazing to witness how they act in the wild and how close the drivers take you into the action. Most of them know a lot about the animals and their behaviors. Take our guide Henry from the Fairmont Mara Safari Club. He is outstanding! Really knows his stuff and makes everyone feel comfortable with his extraordinary personality. Two thumbs up for this great tour guide. Hopefully, if you decide to visit Kenya and stay in the Fairmont Mara Safari Club, you are privileged with Henry as your driver and tour guide.
After spending 3 days in our 1st Safari ever in Africa’s Maasai Mara all I can say is that this place is amazing!!! There’s no words that can describe how beautiful this place and the animals are. Our trip started a little rocky after getting our camera stolen at the airport as soon as we arrived in Nairobi, Kenya. We had to get over real fast and look for a camera asap before our Safari a day later. Who wants to be in a Safari without a camera?! That was a disaster in the making but luckily we found a camera just hours before our flight to the Safari lodge in the Masai Mara. After the trip we’ll have full reviews of our trip and our Safari camp and Kenya in general. For now here’s my favorite pictures of our first 2 days in Africa’s Masai Mara Safari:
