I wasn't terribly excited by the buffet selections, and they were a bit slow getting started before we left for a balloon ride, but otherwise this was an excellent place to stay while exploring the Masai Mara. The rooms were comfortable and the commons area was nice.

My trip was turned into a nightmare by the sales lady called Wanjiku/Hilda I had booked for 4 nights at the camp and was advised to book in town for the 1st night as our flight was going to arrive late and that it was too far to travel to the camp on the very 1st day, I was advised... More

Simple and functional tented camp, with a nice and typical common area where you can meet other travellers. Good meals with buffet, nice staff people. Good position to visit Masai Mara reserve, because the camp is into the reserve, near a river. You can hear the noise of hippos during the night.

We stayed in Kichakani bang in the middle of migration season in August 2013. The camp is quite basic but we enjoyed the stay. Pros: Tents are comfortable Close to the Mara action Close to ballooning starting points Decent food Cons: Service was a let-down No water pressure in the shower and no hot water Overall, decent place to stay...

We stayed in the camp in August this year, the location was amazing-very close to animals you can infant hear them at night! The staff are really nice and the food is ok but the tents are not that great. Ours was quite dirty-bathroom was really dirty and shower was a trickle with no light. There is a swimming pool...

The camp is really close to the park with great staff. Incredibly friendly. The food is below standard, sometimes cold. The tents are good but with the electricity only on for 2 hours in the morning and evening the place can look a little dreary. The swimming pool needs to be treated as it was very dirty although we weren't... More

My friend and I booked this camp through Silver Bird Travel Agency. At the end, we don’t know if the thieves were only the people at the camp, or if the travel agency was involved, but I’ll share my story: The game drive was organized by the camp and the ride itself was OK, we had a good driver (Simon)...
