After reading the reviews, we were going to the Camp with a bit of trepidation, but were very pleasantly surprised with what we saw. We were warmly welcomed by very nice and helpful staff, the tents were actually decent and clean, food was pleasant, there is nothing to complain about to be honest. The camp is basic, but no-one is... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights as part of a safari package with 'Planet' who are based at Nairobi airport. Highly recommended if you enjoy unreliable electricity and hot water supply. Packing and unpacking in the pitch dark. No hot water for shower. No towels, toilet paper and no breakfast because the power has failed. If you really must... More

This is a good place to stay. The people working there were nice, and it was awesome to wake up in the early morning to the sounds of lions roaring and hyenas laughing. I know nothing about the food because we had our own chef with us on our safari.

I camped here with two of my girlfriends, and we were habing a blast! Great food, hospitality and location! I absolutely recommend this camp for the ultimate camp feeling. There are of course cabins wich are buldings of cement and most of the other 'rooms' are tents under solid roofs. We went to bed and woke up hearing the roar... More

My bf and I stayed at Rhino Tourist Camp for a 2-night/3-day safari and was assigned Room 1983 - one of the covered structures (not the tent). Upon stepping inside, you notice that the structure hadn't been built properly. The corners of the ceilings were open, leaving room for critters to crawl in (had a nasty lizard surprise in the...

We stayed at Rhino Tourist Camp for a two-night, three-day safari, and I was pleasantly surprised . I was not expecting much from a budget camp, but the place was clean, and the staff was friendly. We stayed in a tent, and towels, soap and flip-flops were provided. The food was simple, but good. Unfortunately, we were sleeping in the... More

When I booked a tented safari in the Maasi Mara with a safari broker out of Nairobi, I expected the same type of tented camp we experienced in the Serengeti or Ngorongoro crater; a tent with attached bucket shower tent and portable potty out in the wild in or near the park. Real camping but with a comfortable cot bed.... More

I highly recommend this place if you are visiting the Mara. Rhino has many things going for it - great location (if you want to visit the Masai villages after a game drive, staying here would make that easy), great food, great staff. Few places in the Mara to also have a 'massage' centre. Food: Everything is freshly prepared, wholesome... More

We were in a wall room (no tented) and it fitted perfectly to us. There are a few choices for breakfast, lunch and diner, but all of them where really good and they change from one day to another. I was asked for help because mine was the only car at that time going to take some people which car... More
