We are 3 families that spent 3 nights at this small tented camp. The location is great, always some animal sightings, specially Hippos. Paul and his team do a great job. Very friendly. Great food as well! Out of the 3 nights there were water problems on 2 and electricity problems on 1. This needs attention.

My wife & I stayed in this camp for 3 days just recently and we have stayed in camps in Botswana before this and since we left this camp we stayed in another in the Serengeti in Tanzania. Frankly we were disappointed, the people were friendly and the tents placed well next to the Mara river, the food was good... More

Wow, first time I went for a safari and I certainly hope it is not the last... Perfect two days. Even the small plane that I was so scared of did not bother me!! Smooth flight, soft landing... and on arrival Joseph our Masai was there waiting for us with his landrover. I was told that sometimes you get lucky... More

This was our third location in Kenya and our first trip to Africa. Masai Mara was not to be missed and Mara Ngenche was perfect in every way! Paul and his staff were terrific and did not miss on anything. The food was first rate and the accommodations were exquisite. The location at the confluence of the Mara and Talek... More

Being born and raised in Kenya and also having a family in the Hospitality industry I have been to the Mara countless times and stayed at numerous kinds of accommodation. Ngenche is by far the most unique luxury tented camp experience I've had. The location of the camp is breathtaking, situated at the convergence of the two main rivers -... More

This place is at the ultimate location in the Mara...on the confluence of the Mara & Talek rivers.... For us the highlight was seeing 2 crossings of whilst sitting in the camp...and because of its location, no cars can come on the opposite side and so you get the ultimate private migration crossing...of course if you are lucky. The other... More

This jewel of a tented camp in Masai Mara, with only six tents and a position which is hard to rival: right at the confluence of the Talek and Mara rivers. One feels one is right in the middle of nature, here animals and shrub reign: no enclosures to keep the hippos, or other animals, out of the camp. The... More

We spent 4 nights in September 2013 in this magic camp. Everything was perfect. The very warm welcome, our superb tent no 1 with its very private garden space, an excellent food, the professional massages and a perfect service in general made our stay unforgettable. We appreciated very much the hospitality and kindness of the camp Manager and his staff... More

What a treat!! As part of of our honeymoon we have spent several days in the beautiful Mara Ngenche and we enjoyed every single minute to the max. The location and tents are phantastic, the food is excellent and the team makes the time greatly enjoyable. Joseph is a highly knowledgable and pleasant guide that showed us so many highlights...

This place is absolutely wonderfull. Luxery when it is best. I had my own tent - which is more like a summer house than a tent. When the guards brought my back to the tent after dinner, we met 2 very big hippoes on the way. One of them decided to run forth and back behind my tent, a Little... More
