I revisited Karen Blixen camp for the 4th time in Feb 2015, this time with my son and daughter. We had a fabulous three days. We were welcomed and treated like royalty at the camp, and had excellent game drives. I cannot recommend KBC enough to any would-be visitors. Food is great, hospitality superb, accommodation and bush experience idyllic.....don't miss... More

We had a great stay at this camp for 3 nights. The staff were all very friendly and always helpful and appeared to enjoy their workplace. The setting is great looking at the wild animals whilst eating your meals. The "tents" are well set up and the outdoor shower was great. The tour guides/drivers were also very good and drove...

We visited the Karen Blixen Camp at the end of March. We had originally booked for my birthday in January but had to change our dates due to family illness. They were very helpful and this change was no problem. From the moment we landed in the Mara we were treated exceptionally. Our driver Duncan greeted us and took us... More

The staying at the Camp was excellent, great food, nice rooms/tens with a perfect view to the Mara - River with lots of animals only 10 meters from the camp. It is a fantastic place, luxury accommodation with... More

Made to feel like an old colonial master! This place is awesome, service was superb. Our guide Daniel had the most amazing eyesight and an encyclopaedic knowledge. The setting is superb and the "tents" are better than most people's apartments! Considering its remote location the food is great, there is adequate wifi and even a cute little pool to relax...

We stayed at Karen Blixen mid February, we had a very bumpy ride down from Nairobi but once we had landed and were settle in the safari Jeep it was soon forgotten. We arrived at the camp and were shown to our tent, no. 17, which wasn’t too far from the main restaurant etc. The tents were clean and well... More

Fantastic! I don´t know how many times we said this during our 4 night stay at Karen Blixen. From being met at the airstrip by our tracker/guide/driver, Peter and immediately being submerged on our Safari. Peter had phenomenal skills at tracking and finding diverse wildlife. Huge knowledge of his surroundings and was very generous to share it with us. During... More

My wife and I enjoyed two great nights at this camp in January. The tents were very comfortable and situated close to the Mara River so that you could hear the hippos grunting away (day and night) and watch game on the opposite shore (elephant, giraffe, zebra and large herds of impala). The camp staff were very efficient and incredibly... More
