My parents and I recently stayed at Mara West and it exceeded our expectations. The location offered superb views and I have the amazing sunrise photos to prove it. It is well worth the drive up the very bumpy road to get to this camp.
If camping were always this luxurious and relaxed, I would camp more often. I do not enjoy sleeping in tents, but it was hard to recognize the inside of our tent as anything other than a high quality hotel. The only trouble I had sleeping was trying to block out the sounds of the wild animals all around. The bed was the most comfortable of all the places we stayed.
Our family agrees that we enjoyed our stay at Mara West the most during our 2 week safari. The laid back atmosphere allowed us to completely relax and feel at home. We were treated like part of the Mara West family.
I look forward to returning to Kenya and staying at Mara West again.
