The Sentrim Mara provides a great base to explore the Maasai Mara - the atmosphere is great, the safari tents well appointed and the staff very friendly and helpful. However I have given the Sentrim Mara an average rating because the hot water was unreliable - no hot water 3 days out of 4 and the food was average with... More

The accommodation here is in "tents". Ours had a conventional. solid wall at one end that housed the wash basins, shower and toilet facilities, while beyond this wall the bedroom part of the accommodation was indeed a heavy canvas tent hung from a robust looking steel framework. The mains power was turned off at 2100 each night and the tents... More

I stayed at Mara Sentrim for 2 nights with family in January 2015 and liked the overall experience. The cottages are neat and spacious. The food is good too, especially with the Indian touch to it. They have a nice li'l campfire by the poolside and music that livens up the evening. The staff here was very polite and helpful.... More

The permanent tents are very spacious and were kept clean. They have comfortable balconies. Lights out at 9PM so you have to be prepared. Mosquito nets cover the beds, but mine was a bit short and didn't keep all the mosquitoes out. Had one in the net each of the three nights that we stayed. The grounds could be lovely,... More

edge of the Masai Mara Reserve. Features a swimming pool, good food, a most helpful staff, and guards to escort you "home" after dark. The manager shows a genuine interest in making the guests feel comfortable. Beds are fitted with mosquito netting. The tents are clean and kept that way by a willing staff. A fine place to stay, eat,... More

Very spacious luxury tents on a platform with a spacious front porch and a large bathroom area with separate toilet and shower spaces helped make our stay very comfortable. We had a safe in our room and an umbrella was provided. Friendly and courteous security escorts made the well lighted attractive walkway from the dining building safe after dark (but... More
