Exceptional”
Great place for family with kids. Room is extremely clean, comfortable and big. Kids love the safari and zoo. A bit pricey and it would be better if the buffet in the restaurant has more variety. Staff is very friendly and helpful! Their service is perfect! They deserve a six star for their services!

We were expecting the animal will be more like taman safari puncak. Unfortunate it isnt. But the safari night package is incredible. The package also fantastic, you can go in and out for safary journey/explorer as many times you like

Don't stay here ”
My boyfriend and I checked into this hotel and checked out approximately 30 minutes later. The room was lovely, as was the view of the free-roaming animals....that is, until hoards of tourists came by riding on elephants. I suppose it is my own fault for not researching this place more thoroughly. I naively assumed it was a safari, as advertised. But it's only part safari, and the other part circus. I know it's a common practice in Asia, but riding elephants is cruel, though many don't realize it. In order to force them into submission, they are broken at a very young age. Wild elephants don't simply kneel down and allow you to mount them. Their "training" is nothing short of torture. Their spines aren't designed for carrying people or objects. It's a horrible practice that I so badly wish would be shut down, but alas, tourists need their selfies, and are happy to get them even at the expense of defenseless animals...anyway, it's worth noting that the hotel itself is nice, and the staff was very responsive to our concerns. I have only nice things to say about them. My problem isn't with the hotel itself - it's with what is outside of it. If they would actually be, as advertised, an actual safari, I would gladly pay money to see animals cared for and happy in a non-threatening environment, but unfortunately, that's not what this is.

Unique and unforgetable experience ”
It is definitely not cheap... everything here is costly, eat with lion etc. But the experience may last a life time. You can feed zebra and animals at the comfort of you room. The room is definitely beautiful. We like the areas where you can pet the turtles, rabbits, etc....

Well Orgainsed, great customer service and satisfaction”
The team at Mara River have a passion for their roles. The presentations are informative and well organised and run to a timely program allowing time to see each one without rushing. They are presented in English , easily understood and done with good humour and positivity. There is a large array of animals to view, we particularly enjoyed the Day Safari ride around the park as you are able to see a huge variety of animals up close. The staff at the lodge provide excellent customer service and value clientele. Nothing is too much trouble and always with a happy smile. They even performed the fire dance in the pouring rain with enthusiasm and big smiles, a very dedicated and professional team. The animals appear to be well cared for, well nourished and without signs of stress. The keepers appear respectful and genuine in their care of the animals. We thoroughly enjoyed our experiences and overnight stay at Mara River Lidge Safari Park and happily recommend to others.

The staff not really kind to greeting us, slow response, when you need buggy you have to wait quite long until the phone picked up. Food is great taste.
