The camp is an amazing place if you want to combine relax & adventure. We stayed in a big tent with two double beds just in front of the Mara river, the tent is very comfortable with private toilet and warm shower. The services and staff were excellent, we were treated like kings and the food is just amazingly good, actually we ate like pigs!
Joseph our personal guide was excellent in finding all the animals but the elusive leopard. In the camp itself there were zebras, hyppos, elephants, baboons and hundreds of birds and being myself a birdwatcher it was a paradise for me just walking around with my binoculars around the camp. Nearby there are few Maasai villages, very interesting to visit and learn more about this culture.
For sure it is a place to come back in the future!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Jacqueline Roumeguere-Eberhardt was born and raised in Northern Transvaal, South Africa and initiated as a Venda Princess. She studied Anthropology in The Sorbonne in Paris where she met her first husband Pierre Roumeguere. They set off together on many adventures in Africa, Pierre as a Diplomat and Jacqueline working for the French National Council of Scientific Research (CNRS). In the early 60’s, after spending 3 months in the desert looking for the Lost City of the Kalahari, they ended up in Kenya where Jacqueline decided to record the Maasai people’s amazing ceremonial cycle. She spent her whole life photographing, filming and observing ceremonies that may never happen again. She fell in love with Ole Kapusia, a young and valiant warrior who not only helped her with her research but also raised her three French children, Isabelle, Carolyn and George. In 1979, Jacqueline and Ole Kapusia built a family home, Mara Enkipai, where Jacqueline spent a lot of time writing. Her last book yet to be published is called ‘My husband’s six wives….’. By the time she finished writing it, Jacqueline was the first of Ole Kapusia’s nine wives. Jacqueline’s writing refuge has now been opened by George & Vanessa Roumeguere, her son & daughter-in-law. The couple aspire to share with each guest a little of the passion, adventure and culture of this unusual family home. ... more less
