I'd go for 2 nights at Ol Pejeta and 4 at the Mara. I love Sweetwaters but it is considerable smaller than the Mara. On the other hand I have no idea what entumoto is like and I do know that Sweetwaters is very very good.

I'd also agree with Val, although Sweetwaters has ranked with me as one of my favorite Kenya places to stay. When you are going to be there may also be a factor, but the Mara does definitely have more area to cover. Depending on your interests, and if you did cut your stay at Sweetwaters to 2 days, after going to the Goodall chip preserve and seeing Baraka the rhino, I would skip those and spend more time looking for wildlife out and about. Now if you have a great desire to be able to pet a rhino up close, you may enjoy it. But for me, those 2 places, which my guide thought I'd enjoy, were more zoo like. I also am not familiar with entumoto in the Mara.

Another vote for 2 nights sweetwater & 4 at mara.

You can also visit the Rhino Sanctuary @ Lewa from Sweetwaters.

There's a Chimpanzee Sanctuary @ SW.

Definitely 4/nts in the Mara.

As to Entumoto, yankari/Richrd replied to your other thread (Siana Springs vs Entumoto) re both of these camps and where located. There are other options in the Mara that might better suit your needs whether location and actual camp.
