I have no real news for the readers of this rows. I think everthing is said in more than 100 contributions about this exceptional place. Or have you ever seen this rating of 530 given star with 535 possible ones? (early November 2013). We, two grandparents an a grandson will give this place 5 more stars.
Okay, we were 5 days/4 nights here. Just in the center of the most interesting place for watching wildlife in Kenya. I think this is the first excellent point: There are many more lodges in Masai Mara, but this one is really in the park and there is not need to drive first early in the morning a large distance to be at the rivers Mara and Tarek.
Be aware where you are! Then you will realize what comfort you have in this camp. Nice rooms (tents) with comfortable beds, tables and chairs, not much but running water, hot showers, a working water toilet and many small LED-lights during darkness. Everthing to feel good here.
In addition a very nice and attentive staff guided by the very nice Leslie as a camp-manager. They tried really to read the wishes from your eyes and to fulfill it. Every morning with the weakup call at 5:30 we had on the table in front of the tent hot coffee, hot tea and hot chocolate to start the day. And at lunch and dinner time there was a food buffet which a good choice of good cooked meals. Every day another composition.
If you are lucky like we were with the sightings of wildlife and together with the friendliness of the staff and comfort of this camp, I'm sure, you will never forget the few days in this place. Okay, there is a price for it, but try it, there is no risk and worth the money!
