We will carry these days with us forever

Every detail completely blew us away

My recent stay at Ishara with my girlfriend was truly heavenly. Every detail completely blew us away. The safari rides were extremely informative and fascinating, the food was amazing, and the river suite was the definition of luxury.
The staff at Ishara is caring, attentive, and very friendly. They made the trip well worth a return. Eric, the on–site photographer, shone an eye–opening light on the world of wildlife photography for us amateur iPhone photographers. This is the place you want to stay if you’re visiting the Mara, trust me.

Sufficient excuses for a return visit

With five–star food, spectacular views, modern rooms with both an outdoor shower and a riverbank bathtub.
Ishara embodies the simplicity of perfection. We left the futuristic gym, swimming pool and waterfall suite untouched to ensure we had sufficient excuses for a return visit.

Breathtaking experience

You have successfully created an immaculate and breathtaking experience in the heart of nature. The attention to detail, love, care, and commitment to service at Ishara make this place a world class hospitality destination.
I can comfortably say this is one of the best hotels I have stayed at throughout my life. Thank you for sharing this gift with the world. I hope you never change because it’s perfect.

The warmest hospitality

Blessings to the wonderful Ishara staff, our new friends. You have made our trip extra-special — we love you all. Our 52nd anniversary celebration was the best ever and we will remember all of you forever. The food here was exceptional – the best! We thank you all for the warmest hospitality and will remember you always. Beautiful memories.

Warmth, care, and wisdom shared

As we get ready leave your home, our hearts are full (stomachs too!!). We are so appreciative of your incredible warmth, care, and wisdom shared with us these past 3 days. From the morning greetings and escorts to the breakfast al fresco — from firepit snacks to delicious dinners…
Every meal, every interaction was memorable. The setting is spectacular, but you all made this visit one we will cherish! We all thank you from the bottom of our hearts for welcoming and embracing us. We will miss you and truly hope to return again.

The first proposal at Ishara

We would love to thank all the staff for their amazing hospitality and for a dream experience. We couldn’t have been happier at Ishara and with how amazing each and every staff member was to us, making each night special.
We are so honoured to be the first proposal at Ishara and it was the most spectacular experience on the observation deck. We will definitely come back!

Highly recommend

Ishara is truly a gem of a camp. Tastefully built on the river banks, the tents provide unmatched luxury & comfort throughout your stay. Everything has been thought of, from the Nespresso machine to the outdoor shower & bath. The food and snacks offered are of the highest quality, and most of their vegetables & greens are grown on site, ensuring quality & freshness.
The staff is absolutely amazing and would bend backwards to ensure all our needs and wants are taken care of. Their guides are very knowledgeable and their cars offer a comfortable ride and great vantage points to view (and photograph) the wildlife and scenery. The fact that they can actually provide you with a camera and have a pro come with you on drives to teach you how to use it (and later edit your photos) was for me unheard of – until I visited Ishara. Words and pictures will never do it justice until you see it for yourself. Highly recommend! (Cannot stress that enough).

Our stay here felt like an experience out of a story book

The last four days have been truly magical. It is hard to pen down our experiences in words. I feel no words can do justice to the calm, serenity, beauty and not to mention comfort that you extend in the middle of the jungle. Our stay here felt like an experience out of a story book.
The camp could not be more comfortable. It feels like a home away from home, and the staff is so friendly, caring, and hospitable that you truly feel like their family. Every element of comfort, practicality and aesthetics have been so well thought out and blend in almost seamlessly. The attention to detail shows the love and passion you have invested in this project.

We cannot fault it

Ishara Mara truly made our trip in Kenya unforgettable and incredible. Words cannot begin to express how amazing this camp is. We cannot fault it. The camp itself was amazing and had everything you could possibly need (there is even a gym, pool and spa!) The most special part of the experience was by far the staff and the guides who treat you like family. They went above and beyond in making it the most beautiful experience.
Isaac and the team of chefs catered to every need, specifically our dietary requirements (vegan) and the entire team accommodated any request with a smile, and went that extra mile with special touches. The staff are all so friendly and loving, and Peter (our guide), was so knowledgeable, funny and friendly – each drive was magical. We cannot thank you enough, Ishara for making this an experience of a lifetime and giving us so many special memories. We couldn’t recommend this camp more. For a special stay with everything you could possibly want and more, stay here! We can’t wait to come back.
