Great camp, great game, great food and great staff. The team running the camp are great fun and nothing was too much trouble for them. My wife and I stayed 4 nights at this small camp the first week of March 2013 and we had a superb time. Uncertainty surrounding the local elections in combination with low season meant we were the only guests and had the whole place to ourselves. The camp is situated on the Mara river in the Mara North Conservancy adjacent to the National Park. This means off road and night drives were possible. We saw an amazing number of animals and particularly liked the local genet Jen. Her nightly appearance in the dining room made dinner so much more special. A great thank you from Edward Pennings and Claudia Quintela.
