Deep in the heart of the unspoiled Kenyan countryside lies the Masai Mara region – home to incredible wildlife, expansive landscapes and some fantastic remote safari lodges. RASK Travel’s Adam Eisen ventured to The Fairmont’s beautiful Mara Safari Club to experience one of the best lodges in the country.
There is an outdoor pool and a spa - both of which were very quiet as most guests were busy with game drives and other safari activities. The Wi-Fi (available only in the lobby and dining areas) was truly terrible but this bothered me less than usual as I was more than happy to disconnect and truly appreciate my surroundings. There is an option of a morning hot air balloon ride, but at USD 450 per person and with a 4am wakeup, we decided to give this activity a miss.
