The rooms are great, tents are comfortable and hosts are good. Nelson and his team are friendly. Location is great, very near to the gate. Overall, you can really enjoy your stay here. However, our stay could have been better, we had many instances, which obviously disappointed us, given all the great reviews. First night, our shower broke down, there was no hot water. It took the team an hour to fix it up, we could do nothing but wait. There was atleast 2 instances when the food was short of requirement in term of quantity and we were left hungry, however the taste was good, Will(Cook) even extended to prepare a Vegetarian food. The safari's were great, however, I think probably the guide were new, they were referring to book to tell information about animals and birds. We went during the migration and the guide took us between hoards of animals which was wonderful experience. Next was the Masai village walk. Really, I think this was more made for tourist purposes. The sample hut, the shopping arena, and exaggerated prices, for anything you ask for. The owner, took us to Lake Nakuru and back to Airport, made us comfortable. I would look for other options next time I visit Masai Mara.
