Didn't expect it to be such a stunning place as it turned out to be! Was more than pleasantly surprised when we reached there after a long, bumpy and tiring drive from Nairobi. Plenty of game viewing (including the Big Five) in just two days, as well as giraffes grazing across the hill from our tents. Food was fab, staff... More

I spent three days from 22nd to 24th August with my family. Being my first time with a road drive from Nairobi it wasn't easy. The drive was tiring, the welcome from Sheila and the crew was very warm. The tented rooms inviting, very lovely concept. The food was good not much variety but very well done. It is worth... More

The booking for this camp was made last minute by an agent in Nairobi. I am living in Kenya and working for an NGO so I am fortunate enough to have a vehicle. I chose to drive myself. There are no signs, many of the drivers weren't sure where to direct me and unfortunately, when you google this camp whoever... More

I'm torn as to whether to give this camp three or four stars, because it really depends on what you're expecting. If you're expecting luxury, you'll be disappointed. If you're expected camping, you'll be pleasantly surprised. My wife and I stayed 2 nights at this tented camp just outside Masai Mara game reserve as part of a 10-day safari trip... More

We should have stayed here for 2 nights but... when it rains the river that separates the area where the tented camp is located from Masai Mara is swelling and you can say bye bye to your things if you are caught on the wrong side of the river. So we have stayed here only one night. We arrived here... More

In the 9 weeks I have travelled through Africa, my definite highlight was my Safari to th the Masai Mara. This lodge was in a great location, and I am not one for roughing it up so the luxury tents were just my style. I liked having a bathrooms in the tent, with all the facilities. The only downside is... More

We stayed here two nights. We were the only guests and were well-looked after, even having four security guards at night. The guards were very obvious and we were not worried about security at all. Food was simple but fresh. We were on safari and did not expect a five star buffet! Our room had solar power only and this... More

We stayed here 3 nights. It's outside of the Masai Mara and not a good road to drive. It could be a shortcut but even this road was a long drive to go the places where you need to be to see a lot of wild animals.Ok, here at the camp are also possibilities to see wild animals but is... More
