Mara River camp is one of the best camps I have had the pleasure stay at. The attention to detail is beautiful, not only the decor but the staff looking after you. The decor is superb. Beautiful pieces adorning the walls, paintings by Ray Charles, huge carvings sculptures in the grounds and architecture that gives it the African feel. A... More

I have been there now like 4 times taking groups there. All of my groups except one had excellent time--that one only complained of beds and some of food. However that group said that animals were best. Very small personal touch type. We did flying package and was one of the best rates around. You fly to airstrip and then... More

Although I found earlier reviews of the camp very helpful when choosing where to stay for our trip to the Mara, I thought they could do with an update so here goes! If you are into beautiful natural settings, the MRC, nestled up to the river where groups of hippo swim, snort and grunt is a delight. Watch out for... More

It's just a new camp, it was a little bit quiet, there about 5 of us staying there. The location of this camp is very good, it's just outside the reserve right on the Mara River. You can see the hippos playing in the water. There is a Maasai Village about 10 min walk, we went there and watch soccer... More

The lodge name has changed a number of times and this made me worry a little but on visiting I must say I fell in love with the place. I will never forget the hippo at the river just next to the lodge

Ad inizio agosto la mia compagna ed io abbiamo fatto un safari al Masai Mara; volevamo soprattutto vedere la grande migrazione. Da una parte siamo stati sfortunati perchè l'agenzia non aveva effettuato la prenotazione del lodge, dall'altra siamo stati molto fortunati perchè abbiamo alloggiato al Mara River dove abbiamo incontrato un grande direttore, Mr.Louis, e Patrick, la simpaticissima ed abile...

A co-worker and I who work in Western Kenya decided to take a weekend trip to Masai Mara and were very fortunate to stumble upon Mara River Camp. In addition to the incredible location along the Mara River, where hippos were lounging and elephants passing by, the newly renovated facility is gorgeously designed with luxurious safari tents, beautiful dining area,...
