This was my first stay at the Aruba Camp after staying at larger camps on previous trips. I was very pleasantly surprised from the beginning. I could not have asked for the staff to be any more attentive to my needs. They went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. The tents were clean and in good repair.... More

We have our own tent and driver/cook, so we stayed at the campsite. Only 1 other tent there, space enough. Friendly people, nightguard, perfect. You have to order food in advance otherwise there will be nothing in the restaurant. No shop here, you have to bring everything yourself from Narok. Shower with hot water and toilets are a hole in...

I stayed here for one night in the self-tent area with my Maasai guides. It was lovely. There is a restaurant and bar and you can sit right at the river and watch the animals come down to drink in the evening. There is a nice firepit, which is lit every evening. The food was excellent - and there is... More

The staff are all friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and very well presented. The portion size was good for me but maybe... More

We stayed here for 6 nights in late August and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay. Aruba-Mara is a very well-run camp and the staff really go the extra mile to assist you by helping with taxis etc. The manager, Peter, was consistently polite and patient and dealt with all matter of queries and concerns. The camp is very... More

Aruba Mara Camp review Considering that many safari camps either cost you your mortgage or are out-and-out dumps, this place is perfect. They have a campsite for those with their own tent / camper which charges €5 per night, bush tents (huge walk in tents with a 4 poster bed and mozzie net) for €50, more luxurious walk-in ' big...

We stayed in Aruba for two nights and did two short safaris and one full day safari. Our guide, Peter, who is also the manager of Aruba, was really good. He made sure saw all of the animals and he knew the park inside out. The food was very good, except for maybe the packed lunch on the full day... More

Our first visit 'out west' was a family adventure, with my husband's parents visiting East Africa for the first time. Daniel met us at Ol Kiombo airstrip and the adventures really began. Within 24 hours, just four game drives later, we'd spotted the Big 5. The food was great, tents just what we needed (spacious), plenty of time to relax... More
