Wanting to tick another box on my bucket list I flew to the mara on an Air Kenya Flight from the small, but super efficient Wilson Airport. My travel agent offered my several choices of camps and lodges, but with research on trip advisor I settled on Mara Ngenche and it was the perfect choice. Five days before Christmas I... More

An elegant and tastefully appointed camp that nestles subtly on the banks of the confluence of the Mara and Talek rivers, barely disturbing the bush its settled in. Delicious food, spacious luxurious 'tents' and attentive personal service, Ngenche Camp was a delightful place to spend a weekend á deux. The Mara speaks for itself, always full of enchanting surprises, and... More

Really nice and well maintained tented camp with an amazing location. We had a lovely stay at this place. Our Maasai guide was awesome (Lucas) who spotted game like a boss (we saw all the big animals plus special stuff like a rock python who had gone into a bird's nest and was digesting his "meal" there). The staff is... More

I booked Mara Ngenche at the recommendation of the travel agent as well as coming across it online. From start to finish the experience was simply wonderful. An intimate setting with only 10 tents, it feels so personal and private and the tents are absolutely beautiful with all the amenities you could wish for. The beds, the bathroom the scenery... More

I loved this place. Location so serene near the junction of Talk & Mara rivers. Nice luxury private tents. Very well decorated& finished. Staff very friendly and helpful. They make you very comfortable. Enjoyed the served meals with a smile. The food was amazing considering being in the jungle. Being vegetarians we were very surprised with the variety. Must mention...

We stayed in some beautiful resorts and tented camps on our trip through Tanzania and Kenya, but this was our favorite. The dirt road and entrance to camp doesn't look promising at first, but the tents, dining and bar areas proved amazing. The staff and chef are absolutely fantastic - well beyond our expectations! After drinks in the well-stocked bar,... More

We loved each of our four upscale camps in East Africa, but this was the best. No buffets and instead divine food with servers. The chef even wrote each of our names in chocolate on the dessert plates for our last dinner. Hot water bottles were tucked under our bed comforter at each night. When we returned from a rain-drenched... More

Lets get serious here- The Masai Mara is a must see before you die place, and Ngenche camp will only make this experience closer to perfection. That's how serious I am. It is located "in the bush", which allows you to commune with nature in the most intimate way. Not to be confused, it is luxurious, a world class, but... More

Our trip was arranged by Carel Verhoef at discoverafrica.com and was perfectly organised. We flew into the Masai Mara from Nairobi and all flight connections and transfers were arranged for us and went like clockwork. Carel was also very generous with his advice having lived in East Africa for some years – he is a mine of useful information. My... More

If you want to feel like a king - you have to come to Ngenche! We were treated wonderfully from the moment we arrived to the camp. We were welcomed with hot, scented towels and a fruit shake. The tent we recieved was luxurious and indulging and was designed with a great taste - which remindes me that the food... More
