We had the most wonderful stay at Exploreans Mara Rianta Camp. The camp was absolutely stunning, I loved the private butler who provided wake up coffee/tea and muffins every morning, personal waiter and guide/driver for the Masai Mara trips. I let them know prior to arriving that I was gluten free and they catered for this so well even providing... More

We recently returned from a 6 night stay at the Exploreans Mara Rianta Camp with our 2 year old daughter. As it was our first safari, we weren't completely sure what to expect. We were met at the airstrip by our driver Daniel (not to be confused with the senior driver Daniel mentioned in prior reviews; although our Daniel was... More

Would highly recommend this camp from the friendly staff to the good location. Just a short drive from the airstrip. All the staff were very happy and very accommodating even at our 6am wake up call the butler was bright and cheerful. The food was very impressive and we were left feeling full whether it was breakfast, lunch or dinner.... More

Amazing lodge, friendly staff, good selection of drinks and food. Stunning rooms with an amazing view. Game drives done in really nice safari cars with good informative drivers. Would highly recommend it to anyone!

This is the height of luxury. Everything from the rooms to the food to the staff are top-notch. I can't think of one single thing that could possibly be improved upon. Absolutely incredible. The staff, led by Anne-Marie, are some of the kindest, most wonderful people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. They went above and beyond to make... More

My friend had suggested this place to my wife and I for a weekend trip and man, was it excellent, Driving from Nairobi is an adventure to say the least. The roads begin to get rough about 50km from the camp but as you get closer you drive through herds of wildebeest and zebra and the landscape is postcard material.... More

We went to Exploreans over the weekend from Nairobi and spent two nights there. It was awesome! Luxury tents that are overlooking the river! The decor of the tents is outstanding with an open shower! Generally you feel like you have all the luxuries in the middle of the bush! It has it's charm of being in the middle of... More

Stayed at camp # 7 and 8 with my wife and 2 kids 12 and 16years of age on March 19 and 20, 2014. What can I say... this is the ultimate in top class luxury and service I have ever experienced in my life. Having stayed at numerous 5 star safari camps in Tanzania and South Africa, the Exploreans... More

My family and I just spent an AMAZING two nights at the Exploreans Mara Rianta Camp. I love finding out about properties like this on TripAdvisor - new gems that have yet to be discovered by the masses, but are on the cusp of superstardom. Our tents (#7 and #9) were beautifully appointed and spacious. The thoughtful attention to detail... More

My family and I stayed at the Exploreans for four nights in February 2014 and were very pleased. Accommodations: Our tent (#13) is probably like the rest of them and was very comfortable with modern amenities, yet rustic and fit well into the safari scene. Comfortable beds (our two children were with us, ages 8 and 5) for all, hot... More
