I've visited the Masai Mara many times and I have stayed at many luxury tents, but Ngenche has stepped it up a notch. The rooms are massive! The one I slept in had 2 double beds and a child bed and still had space for a lounge area and dressing table. The bathroom has a double sink and indoor bathtub... More

I have just returned from an amazing weekend with my husband and some friends spent at Mara Ngenche Camp. I have stayed in many camps and lodges in the Masai Mara over many years, but I think Mara Ngenche goes down as an all time favourite! The tents were extremely spacious and comfortable and lacked nothing, with many special details... More

It was not until we were there that it was possible to understand what a fantastic camp we had come to. In the absolute middle of Maasai Mara - discreetly placed right by the Mara and Talek river. It only took a few minutes before we saw lions, giraffes, elephants and of course plenty of hippos. We felt super safe... More

This was our second visit to Mara Ngenche and must say the service levels are exceptional every time. The tents are huge and very comfortable and amazingly very little light comes through them in the mornings for those who like a sleep in. The food is delicious. On the game drives we saw lions everyday, 5 cheetah and all other... More

This is such a great little spot to get right into the heart of Mara national park. This place backs onto the Mara river where the migration crossing occurs each year...Some massive crocodiles and the river houses the hippos which you can hear throughout the day and night. The accommodation is beautiful and the staff are so helpful and go... More

Secluded secret luxury hidden in the beautiful Mara surrounded by hippos, served by staff who are attentive and amazing with food to die for, What more can you ask for? A 'tent' with a four poster bed, a hot tub, a hammock, a roll top bath, an outdoor private shower and at night it is laid with candles. I felt... More

My Husband and I visited the Camp earlier this month with friends and we were treated like royalty. The tents were spread out to allow for privacy, each with their own plunge pool, hammock and stand alone Bath. The food, plentiful, delicious and of Michelin star quality. In summary this camp offers the highest level of luxury at the very... More

On arriving at Ngenche we received a delicious cocktail and a quick safety briefing from the very welcoming staff. Ngenche really does live up to it's reputation with the most luxurious tents ever! We had a beautiful four poster bed with views down to the river where you could hear the hippos. A gorgeous free standing bath and to top... More

Ngenche is a hidden gem in the vast expanse of this beautiful reserve and each tent in the camp has it's own compound complete with mini pool, outdoor drench shower and exquisite four poster bed. The piece de resistance for me was having a soak in my roll top bath whilst looking over the beautiful banks of the river! The... More

This camp was more luxurious than the others I had been to. It had a more private feel to it. Maybe because it was less open and had more bush/trees? But it felt more romantic. We had an amazing drive in seeing a plethora of animals and once we arrived we were welcomed with a lovely refreshing mango fruit drink... More
