Mara Simba Lodge sits overlooking a dramatic bend on the bank of the Talek, a tributary of the Mara River, gently blending 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 at the back 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 Maasai traditional style. Wide, well-lit pathways connect the Public areas and rooms.
At the Mara Simba, special care is taken to conserve the environment. The Mara Simba is the only truly environment 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.

They all have en-suite showers, tiled bathrooms with natural granite and Twyfords, (UK) bathroom fittings. Each spacious room, which can easily accommodate an extra bed, opens onto its own private veranda with uninterrupted views across the river.
