We were pleasantly surprised with the view, cleanliness and comfort of Manyatta Camp. It was booked by our "budget"Safari company. The tents were spartan, but clean. The electricity (generator) was on from 6:30pm to 10:30pm, and for 1 hour in the morning till 6:30am -- very environmentally friendly. There was adequate hot-water... though if the camp is full, you may... More

The camp lies just outside the park, near the gate, which is convenient. Just in front of the camp there is a very pathetic and dirty village. There are plastic bags all over. The tents are spacious and so is the attached bathroom. I had always water with good pressure in the shower. The hot water takes quite a long... More

The camp is nice, with friendly people working there, the tents are clean and tidy, common area where you can meet different groups and share experiences and stories regarding what you have seen in the Masai Mara National Park.

We Spent there only one night because it was full on our day of arrival. Nice rooms and a lot of free space in the camp. Nice seating area at the reception with free coffee and tea, perfect for an afternoon chat before dinner. Close to the Park entrance and on a walking distance to the masai village. The best... More

We were there last week end. I have been to almost all the hotels in Masai Mara & this is the worst place I have ever stayed in my life. The food was very bad. No water in Toilet & bathroom. When I informed the receptionist, they casually told us that the pipe could have broken. Before end of the... More

We stayed at Manyatta Camp as part of a tour with Safe Ride tours. The rooms were a good size, bed was small and the shower was good. I got a few small rocks in the first meal I ate, all other meals after that were fine but a bit repetitive. Dinners were at or after 8pm which is not... More

Spent 1 night here in October 2012, arriving after a 4 hour afternoon safari and getting up early for a sunrise safari! Travelled with Saferide who partner the camp, saw incredible amount of wildlife inside the park, minutes away. The camp was a little basic, but all tents were clean, sturdy and had very comfortable beds with the vital mosquito... More

İt s not worth for the prices. Breakfast very poor. No electricity between the hours 10.30 pm and 05.30 am. Bathrooms are so dirty in a tent. There is no enough staff. Leopar very rarely seemed in that area.

I stayed here in November 2012 for two nights and found the hotel bery nice and good value for the money. The food quality was good (particularly for vegetarians). The service was more than satisfactory. The power used to be put off between around 12.00 am and 5.00 pm was ok. however the fan was working during the night. They... More

This camp is VERY comfortable and on the edge of wild. You can hear the elephants walking and trumpeting nearby. Each tent is protected beneath a thatched hut and in each tent there are 2 cots for your own comfort. The restaurant/bar/gathering area is perfect for just that. And the fire pit with warriors keeping watch is a great place... More
