We stayed two nights at Aruba Mara Camp and wish we could have stayed longer.
The camp is ideally located right by one of the main gates to the reserve (Talek Gate) so is great for those early morning game drives. On such mornings they bring coffee and biscuits to your tent to keep you going before breakfast is served after the drive.
The tents are fab with four poster beds and a brick attached bathroom. They all have a deck that overlooks the river and it was nice to sit and watch the warthogs and impala on the other side. At night they even provide the nice touch of a hot water bottle.
The food provided is also to a very good standard and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. One word of warning if you are self-driving is that a 4x4 is essential.
