Healing my heart

I came as a guest and leave as part of this amazing “Ishara” Family. Thank you for healing my heart and for all the kindness you have shown me. Till we meet again.
Nikki, South Africa


There are not enough words, or should I say adjectives, phrases, vocabulary that I know to even begin to describe and put into words your wonderful ‘Heaven on Earth.’ From the welcome to the stay, to the tiniest meaningful details in everything that you do and stand for – stunning!!! I will be back again and again. I don’t want to leave. See you soon.

This place is magical

Our first time in Kenya and to Ishara, but for sure not the last. This place is magical and gifted us with unique memories to take back home. We are so grateful to be part of this family and to be your ambassadors in Italy, Dubai, and all over the world.

Superb hospitality

We have had a memorable few days out in the bush, fantastic sightings and a great learning experience with Eric, Imara and Jay at the Taswira Photo Studio. Superb hospitality and a warm, homely, and relaxed atmosphere. So, follow your Ishara and be here to enjoy yourself.

Truly memorable and special

Thank you for making our stay at Ishara a truly memorable and special one. The staff was amazing; so service-oriented, warm and friendly, so eager to please and show us a good time.
Julius was FAB! The property is a gem! The views to the river are amazing! The lush and green forest, the quality of the rooms is quite remarkable. We slept like babies to the sound of hippos and woke rested to the sounds of a variety of birds. A TRUE PARADISE! We very much enjoyed the Maasai dances and blessings – Judy will remain my Maasai Godmother forever! Carlos was thrilled with his black Maasai walking stick. Oh, he loved it! Thank you for such a meaningful gift. It will have a very special place in our Mountain lodge in Constanza, Dominican Republic!

Absolutely unforgettable

Asante sana for making our first visit to Ishara Mara an absolutely unforgettable experience. We enjoyed everything about our time here. Chef Isaac went above and beyond with the food. The Starbed experience was amazing. Suleiman planned many special experiences for us. Bernard is an incredible guide. Killion took such good care of us and kept us well fed. Shinka and the Maasai team kept us safe. Our time at the spa was amazing with Liz. The list

Home away from home

Words are not enough to say how amazing you all have been, reading our minds on what we would like and then providing just that. A HOME AWAY FROM HOME – a piece of heaven! Thank you for the lovely gifts for my 2 girls waiting at home – I know they will love it. I will be back in the near future with my family. I don’t want to leave. Just thinking about it makes me cry. You are all amazing.

Ishara really is unforgettable

I can’t thank you enough for the most beautiful stay – every last detail was absolutely amazing – from the scent in the room to the food from the aeroponic tower garden and the truly life changing experiences. Our photographic safari was a top travel moment for me and something I will take with me going forward. Ishara really is unforgettable and I love the meaning of the name.
