Sarova Mara or Ashnil Mara Camp?

Hello,

We had decided to stay at Royal Mara but I have sent them repeated email for reservation and phone call as well but no luck! and no reply. We are going in July and we are almost late!

I am now looking at Sarova Mara and Ashnil Mara. Does anyone know if both this places are located inside the park and which park? And do you recommend them and if yes which one?

Thanks for your help in advance :)

cbear,

❝and regarding conservation im pretty sure all the camps interfered with wildlife when it was built, we still saw plenty of rhino :) ❞

This camp was particularly controversial there was a big campaign by conservationist against it, many people still boycott it and Somak as a result

there was also lots of discussion / argument about it here on TA, this long thread for example

yes i have seen them.

which is exactly my point, every single camp built in any reserve has interfered with habitats.

nobody can deny that- and i didnt see any there at all- it must have been hiding :s
