We enjoyed nature and experienced raw wilderness with luxury thrown in with minimum fuss. Tents are large and kept spotless, we stayed in tents 4 and 5, both overlooking the mighty Mara River. The family enjoyed breakfast and lunch with crocodiles, hippos, elephants and the poor wildebeests who did not make a successful crossing in the background. We witnessed a wildebeest crossing on approach to the camp and there are a couple of nearby crossings points. On the way to the camp we witnessed giraffes sparring, elephants and a lone hippo in the middle of the path. Just as we got to the bush for our sundowner drinks a black rhino walked past. Catering is overlooked by the excellent chef Simon and his brilliant team, enjoy meals on par with the best restaurants. Both the guides Lucas and Milton are excellent. Milton was incredible at pointing out animals and knowledgeable regarding the history and behaviour of these animals, in fact he was genuine in love with nature and passionate in protecting and preserving the Mara ecosystem. None of the cruisers have the irritating two way radios which tend to disturb and infringe on the sounds of nature. Finally the camp manger , Annemette who was amazing at making sure nothing went wrong with our stay and at the same time was almost invisible, she demonstrated a combination of absolute professionalism and the warmest hospitality. i am a seasoned visitor to Mara and have stayed at a number of camps and she stands head and shoulders above every other camp managers. All the people at the camp did everything to make our stay memorable and we will definitely be back in next year or two.
