“Great Tented Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Staying in tents made us feel we were actually living with the animals.It was not everyday that you wake up early morning to the sound of an elephant trumpeting.There was a slight problem with the hot water in the bathroom as it was coming in short spells and then stopping.We called the house keeping ad they said that it was the air pressure problem.But on the whole we would recommend this camp as it completes the safari experience.The rooms were very clean and there were moe problems with insects or mosquitoes.
The food also was good.

Room Tip: Any room is fine as you really get the safari experience staying in a tent

it is nice to stay in a place like a tented camp instead of a building, feel more like in the wild.
They provide self-serviced meals which are the most delicious food I had in Kenya, especially the spaghetti with meat-ball!!! Chef YumYum create many excellent yummy sauce!!
Basically it is safe and all the staff are very nice and helpful. You will miss there when you leave.

Great tents to complement your safari experience; has all the basic amenities you need plus great food. I can't rave enough on how courteous, accommodating and friendly all the staff are, would definitely stay here again.

This was a pleasent tented camp experience just outside of the Masai Mara game reserve. After a long and bumpy drive down the roads leading to the camp, we were met by the staff with drinks and warm towels. We were initally led to the basic tents, but then were given a complimentary upgrade to the luxuary tents so we have an impression on both. The basic tents are just that: Basic. The beds will accomodate two people and there are full bathroom facilities in each one. The luxury tents, on the other hand, have a full porch, two large beds, other inside furniture and a large bathroom area. Our shower's water pressure was a bit low, but our friends (in the same type of tent) had amazing water pressure. It should be noted that power is only on for a limited time during the day, as well as the hot water.

The staff is very friendly and attentive. We never waited on anything at the restaurant and the food was good. I cannot say enough about the fresh fruit and juices offered. They even packed us a delicious lunch for an extensive game drive one day.

Overall, this was a very nice experience for a very reasonable price.

Room Tip: The luxury tents are much larger and more isolated than the basic tents.

This is a nice basic tented camp, good tent, covered with a hard roof, electric lights, after dark and in the early a.m. nice beds, simple bathroom and shower,clean concrete floor. you need to let the water run to get to the hot stuff. I have stayed in tented camps where you needed to walk to the toilet and showers. The staff is VERY warm and friendly, they remembered my name every time we met, of course I remembered their names as well, funny how that works. A couple folks give the place a bad rap, the food was good, ans plenty of it. Of course it is not INSIDE the Mara, some travelers should do research before posting things that make them look stupid.

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.

Room Tip: Prefer the tent rooms !!
