I have been to Mara Ngenche three times now and I will return as soon as I have the chance! The tents are very spacious and luxurious with huge and comfortable beds, more than anything I love the elegant bathtub where I never miss out to have a relaxing bath after a long day of wildlife viewing and sun.

One of the most luxurious tents I have ever stayed in with every little need catered for.... The outdoor showers were a fantastic experience and the cuisine was fantastic. For those looking for luxury in the wilderness, this is definitely the place to be at.

A beautiful location - on the banks of where the Mara and Talek river meet. The whole camp was truly a paradise in the bush. Every little detail was taken care of - even the towels smelt of eucalyptus! We enjoyed gourmet cuisine skilfully prepared and presented. The staff were always on call to serve our every need. It was... More

By far one of the few lodges in the mara that has a beautiful location.What with sitting at the confluence of both Mara & Talek rivers? To get the true feeling of being in the wild, no vegetation has been touched if there is nothing to erect in its place. only 12 intimate tents. No wonder when one Jose Mourinho... More

I've been to the Mara 3 times (to different camps each time) and I think its a testament to the Kenyan tourist industry and the people who work in it that i've never had a bad experience in the Mara. In my opinion the camps and lodges in the Mara are outstanding and its about matching what you want from... More

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...
