I just returned from a four-day stay at Entumoto and I miss it already! First and foremost, the staff from top to bottom is excellent, friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. One of the owners joined us for meals everyday which was a nice personal touch. The tents are spaced far apart - we couldn't even see another tent from ours. The game driver, Isaac, is phenomenal (he's Bronze level and very informed). Every single hour in the vehicle with him is catered completely to what the client wants. He was so patient and made sure we were happy and comfortable. You see plenty of game drivers out in the Mara who look miserable, serious, and are driving subpar cars that get stuck in the mud. Not Isaac! And Entumoto uses completely open air land cruisers that allow you to go wherever you want and you feel right there with the animals.
We had a picnic "bush" lunch or breakfast each day out in the savanna in the mara and a sun downer out on the lions rock overlooking the camp. One unique thing about Entumoto is they have their own fruit and vegetable garden and weave their homegrown produce into their meals. I highly recommend this place! You won't regret it.
