My wife and I spent four nights/three days at this wonderful location. We had picked it because it only had 7 tents. We were the only guests there, so had fantastic individual attention. Christina and her staff were amazing. Food was excellent, our tent overlooked the Mara river, complete with hippos. David, our game driver, was incredible at spotting, often... More

This trip was our first to Africa, and we chose Enkerende as it was a small camp promising lots of wildlife rather than a pool and several restaurants. We were not disappointed. We were picked up from the airport in a land rover (defender so could go over anything) and saw our first animals enroute to the camp. Never having... More

The camp offers 5 star facilities in a spectacular location at the Maasai Mara Reserve. The tents are clean and netting prevents insects from coming in. Tents also have a private bathroom. The food is excellent. Breakfast by the river in full view of hippos is highly recomended. The staff belong to the Maasai tribe and are very friendly and... More

Hello My husband and I were in Kenya for part of our honeymoon and after safaris in other parks we went to the Masai Mara. Though we were expecting something more comfortable, and after a first impact, the truth is that we couldn't have had a better experience at this park if we went to other camp or lodge. Cristina...

Beautiful, relaxing and amazing in the photographic safaris. The camp is in the middle of a beautiful forest where you can "touch" the Mara river and 1 minute walking from the sabana. All rooms are tents with a wonderful bed and private bathroom. Very comfortable and with all facilities. Raoul and Cristina (the owners) are really nice and they will... More

Maasai Mara has always been the ever dream of wildlife lovers and anthropologists. Our stay at the Enkerende TC has been a dream come true when Raul and the Masaais daily customized our safaris to explore the animal life during the Great Migration. We asked to spend quality time with the Big Five. What could have been a very tough... More
