By the Mara river and being right inside the Masai Mara National Park, Ashnil provides a great camp experience. We were in Tent 3, and heard the hippos who were in the river with the crocs. At night we heard lion roaring from the other side of the river (could be 2 kms away). Great location, good food, well stocked... More

This is an excellent camp. The location by the Mara River is very pretty. The tents are amazing, the bathroom comes right out of a modern urban hotel ... but under canvas, the bedroom is beautifully furnished and the veranda overlooking the river is spacious and comfortable. Our son enjoyed the pool and the meals were very good. I can't... More

We were thrilled with our three night stay at the Ashnil Mara. The permanent tents are luxury level (ours had a view of the Mara river with its hippos and crocs) and the restaurant/lounge are lovely. An elephant visited on the outside of the security fence and we had banded mongooses, a family of olive baboons and bushbuck inside the... More

Our first experience of Africa was at Ashnil and there is much to commend it. The depth of knowledge and expertise of Kerore, our driver and guide would be difficult to improve on and the constant warmth and charm of all staff made the experience a pleasant one. Ashnil is good value for the Mara and the accommodation is high... More

Stopped at Ashnil while in transit in the Mara for a drink. Very welcoming staff from the gaurd at the gate, keeping the wild animals out to the bar man that serves you a cool refreshing drink of your choice. Lovely view of the Mara river where we saw numeours hippos and a couple of crocodiles right from the bonfire... More

We felt very save, allthough we lived... More

What a way to stay on safari makes it feel different with the tent but you have all of the comforts of home. Great wildlife seen on our safaris we saw it all. The pool was nice and lots of good food and excellent service from all of the staff we dealt with. Lots of noisy hipps outside your door... More

The staff was so kind, helpful and caring in making sure that our stay was an excellent one. We enjoyed being so close to the Masai Mara park where we were very fortunate to see a total of 37 lions. The food was delicious at this property and the breakfast had so many choices and the tastiest fruit. The tent... More
