We will carry these days with us forever

We give you our deepest thanks for inviting us into this extraordinary place. You have fed us in all ways – body, heart and soul. We will carry these days with us forever.

Revitalised and reconnected

Four days felt like two weeks. Simply amazing. From the minute one is collected at the airstrip, in a state–of–the–art off–roader, it becomes immediately obvious that every last detail has been thought of.
The result is an experience of intense relaxation from start to finish that leaves one entirely revitalised and reconnected with both nature and oneself. From the superlative game drives with hugely knowledgeable guides, the incredible and inventive food (served in multiple, stunning locations), endless beautiful cocktails, wines, beers and soft drinks, a truly awesome set up deep in the park on the banks of the Talek, rooms that continue to surprise and delight, the whole focus is on giving guests the best possible time. And it succeeds, smashing even the highest of expectations. If you are comparing Ishara to other lodges, don’t. Ishara wins in every single category.

This place is magical

Wow! We cannot say enough good about Ishara. This oasis is so much more than just a property, it is a family, and they know just how to make you feel part of it.
Every detail of this camp has been thought out and most even have a story behind it. We have been on over 27 safaris and this has taken #1! You will not regret experiencing Ishara. From the Canon Studio to the Star Bed, this place is magical. Did I mention they have Nespresso machines in their safari trucks?

Indulgent rest for the soul

MAGIC! Ishara is both the ultimate in safari excitement and indulgent rest for the soul.
It is luxury and comfort at every turn, thoughtful staff that anticipates every need, and contemporary Cordon Bleu cuisine that had us swooning. They consider EVERYTHING—guides who know where to get to the best photography angles; Canon camera studio with professional instruction, editing and printing; spa, gym—all in the heart of the Masai Mara Reserve.

Blown away by the passion and vision

I think the meaning of ‘Ishara’ could not be better symbolized than how our paths met. It was truly a case of following the signs of the universe.
We are blown away by the passion and vision for this place that exudes from every one that is linked to Ishara. We feel the connection with you in our hearts. The level of detail in this magical paradise is one thing but the vibe here is where the real magic belongs, and you should be proud of what you have achieved. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sharing your home with us; we will always be a part of the Ishara family. Continue to inspire and follow the signs, and we trust our paths will remain connected. Ishara is a place where everyone can truly reconnect with nature.

These folks bring this place to life

We all need time to step away from the monotony of life and rest. While we filled our days here with game drives, photography, concepting and editing, my soul feels refreshed.
Thank you for giving me this time of rest and for nurturing my soul. The best asset you have – your people. I’ve made friends that are so much more than Ishara ‘staff’. These folks bring this place to life and make it so, so special. I can’t wait to see what’s to come for all of you.

A paradise for reflection

Ishara is truly magical. It is not just a lodge or camp but a paradise for reflection of the mind.
The quality is amazing and the food tops even five–star restaurants in any capital city of the world. Ishara will be my home in the Mara! Asante sana.

It’s not goodbye, it’s until next time

“Wherever you go, there you are.” To the team, thank you to each one of you who has made my second experience at Ishara so special.
I felt at home. I’ve been in love with the Mara since 2009, so it’s truly remarkable that something new would impress me. Ishara is not only a worthy addition, but an elevation. The wildlife, the room, amenities, spa, cuisine and wine, the sustainable nature of it and uniquely the photography studio. I came solo but leave with a new community and some new friends. Thanks, Altaf and Eric. It’s not goodbye, it’s until next time.

I hope to be back

Ishara is an environment where every flower will thrive and bloom. I have been so gloriously happy and enchanted with every single space and place here —
my soul feels full — full of love and peace, and joy at being able to experience this unique place. Thank you to every single person here. Your vision soars like a Bateleur. I hope to be back.
Natalie & Andrew, South Africa

We arrived as guests and leave as family

An incredulous time spent in your magical camp and a once in a lifetime experience. The attention to detail is faultless. Such a perfect place to spend our “110th” birthday.
We will hold our campfire blessings close to our hearts forever. To quote Fairman’s speech, “We arrived as guests and leave as family.” It was a privilege to share this little slice of heaven with you.
