Chose this Safari Camp due to Tripadvisor as i was intent on a "special" birthday trip for my wife and we were overwhelmed by the welcome and courtesy of the camps staff.Kenya is a special place for this type of celebration!Our Waiter Lexson was just superb and the room/tent butler Dalton and then Limar was also exemplary in making sure we were up at 05.30 with a hot drink and looking after our needs during our 3 day stay,of which virtually all the time is on safari in that 700 square miles of the Maasai Mara.
Initially we flew the enjoyable 2 and 1/2 hours from Diani Beach to Ngerende airstrip and was met by our guide Ashford Kamau and Guest Receptionist Miriam in the Toyota Land Cruiser.It seems second nature for these Kenyans to make you feel special and very humbling that is!
I have to agree with the recent review by " dingull", (we met on some of the safaris during her last few days),our guide "Ashford" was so keen to make sure we saw that elusive Leopard to finish the BIG 5 that one or two safaris did become extended.However,he certainly made up for it when my wife was introduced to "Queen Elizabeth & Koffi Annan" a pair of 5 year old Rhino's!! Oh, Queen Elizabeth is pregnant,(really!!)
The service could not be faulted,meals were excellent and Lexson was very cunning when the Management surprised us both with a celebration for not only my wifes birthday but also our 42nd wedding anniversary and a special thanks is in order for Nicholas (the chef).
Thank you everyone. (Asante Sana)
