The Mara Simba lodge sits overlooking a dramatic bend of the Talek, a tributary of the Mara River as it gently blends into the surrounding wilderness. Stretching almost a kilometer along the river the grounds on the bank remain in their virgin condition, while the landscaped gardens filled with indigenous trees draw a great variety of birds and butterflies. The lodge was conceived with an emphasis on exclusivity and comfort. It was designed to complement its surroundings and is decorated in traditional Maasai style.
Wide, well-lit pathways connect the Public areas and rooms. At the Mara Simba, special care is taken to conserve the environment. It is the only truly environmental friendly lodge in Kenya as it is the first to install a sewage treatment plant. The plant provides crystal clear water that is used for irrigation. The 84 guest rooms, arranged in clusters of 6 in each natural wood and stone Banda (4 rooms on the ground floor, 2 interconnecting rooms on the first floor), comprise 60 twin rooms, 12 double, 4 double+single and 8 triple rooms. They all have en-suite showers and tiled bathrooms with natural granite. Each spacious room, which can easily accommodate an extra bed, opens onto its own private veranda with uninterrupted views across the river.
