The Entim Camp is a nice lodge, where we spent 4 nights. Location is great, close to the Mara river, so you can have a view of the river and the hippos in the water from the bar and restaurant. The tents are located on either side of the main area. Tents are comfortable, and well decorated, allthough the lighting at night is a bit poor. If you want to read in your bed, you will need a flash light. Good quality bed, and nice shower.
Staff is great, and particularly Jonathan and Mike, who are waiters in the bar and restaurant are wonderfull guys, who did everything possible to make us happy.
Food is lovely. At your wake-up call, tea or coffee with cookies will be served in your tent. Breakfast was for us a packed breakfast box with many choices, which we ate during the morning game drive. Lunch is a three course meals, just as diner, with plenty of variation and really good quality. After the afternoon game drive, drinks and snacks are served at the fire-place. It is a pity that they still serve bottled water, and do not have a good filter system for drinking water. It means that for drinking and brushing teeth, we must have used several dozens of plastic bottles during our stay.
Game drives were very productive, with excellent views of lions, cheetah and even a crossing of about 5000 wildebeast and zebra. Our guide also did know how to position the car for good views and the best pictures. However, we did feel that the focus of the game drives was a bit too much on big cat sightings, and the rest of the wildlife was almost completely ignored by our guide. We felt that a significant loss in the quality of the game drives compared to other places where we have been. Also it was a pity that our vehicle was not in tip-top shape, and did not start on two occasions while on game drive. Allthough it was solved quickly, you do not want the think about this when oberving a big pride of lions.
