When u want to experience a tent, you would first be reluctant to try the same coz u are not sure about the cleanliness, the food, the water....I was suggested by a few colleagues to try out the 5 star experience of Stanley Maara but ofcourse that comes with a price; so after a let of coaxing from our travel arranger, we booked ourselves at the Ol Moran tented camps. Ofocurse, I took a lot of help from the reviews posted on trip advisor before I decided to check this out.
After a very difficult road journey from Nairobi to Masai (thanks to the poor infrasatructure) , we were greeted on arrival with a refreshing Orange juice and warm towels to wipe our tired faces. The food was simple buffet but yet tasty. The rooms were very neat and clean, putting our fears to rest.
The place is just quite close to the Maara entrance; the staff friendly and helpful. Though they told us the lights would be off from 10pm - 6am, we slept quite peacefully after we came back tired from our game drive. They ensured all blinds were pulled down, the musquito repellent was put on..... Nice experience without compromising your comfort.
