If you want a memorable Mara experience, go to Richard's Camp. Immediately we felt welcomed, like part of the family, and were shown to our outstanding tent accommodations with had outside showers (showering under the stars is awesome!). The dining tent was so comfortable and the meeting tent became a hangout for us, very comfortable seating and a relaxed atmosphere. We spent many hours in the evening sitting by the bonfire and talking with our hosts and fellow travelers. Richard, who is inspiring and a man of his word, spent time with us talking about the Mara Elephant Project. He has really put his heart into saving elephants. Alisa and Thor were also wonderful, finding time to help out in any way they could, including some of our group's dietary requirements. They were always so nice and went out of their way to make us feel at home.
Our game drives were more than memorable, driving through the incredibly beautiful Mara, finding through experiences eyes many animals we couldn't have seen on our own. The dedicated Maasai guides were so much fun, laughed with us, found wonderful site to show us, and really knew their stuff.
After spending two weeks at other sites in Kenya, I would definitely come back to Richard's Camp first, spending more time in the vast outdoors and taking in the spirit of the land and people.
