I would agree completely with tvplano's review. It was as if I was writing the review myself.
This camp was part of the Explorer Kenya camping tour. We paid 875$ pp for a 6 day camping safari including Masai Mara, Amboselli and Lake Nakuru. We also had trouble with the bathroom with a door which didnot have a latch...We had to creatively use a rubber band to tie the door and keep it closed. The flush would not work and hot water was very difficult to come by. Fortunately we were here for just 2 days. We had trouble sleeping there the first night, cause there was another family(of about 20 people) in the lodge who were very noisy and not considerate at all.
There was also a masai guarding the camp at night. At night when we were returning back to our tent, he approached us and took something out from under his blanket. We were scared cause we didnt understand what he was trying to communicate and he had a spear in his hand. Our guide who was also living in this camp saw this and came to help us. The masai was just trying to sell us stuff but it was a little scary.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner was also provided by the campsite because of their deal with Explorer Kenya tours. The food was good and good quantity. We even had lamb the first night for dinner. The staff was also pretty good and helpful.
I guess you get what you pay for. I am not sure how the other camps in Masai Mara fare in comparison. This camp had atleast the basics; i.e. it had a private tent, private bathroom and toilet, a bed., common kitchen and common eating area. I guess if you go out camping, this is what you experience. That being said our camp at Amboselli far exceeded our expectations and was a luxury suite compared to this.
