Thank you so much for writing such a great review! It was so much fun having you all in camp and around the campfire. We hope the rest of your safari was brilliant and that you found some time to relax at the coast! Looking forward to seeing you out here again soon.

We stayed at Ekorian's Mugie Camp in December. We were a family group of 11 including an octogenarian grandfather. From the moment we touched down at the local airstrip we were treated like royalty by the team. Our guides George and Joseph were incredibly knowledgable and clearly love what they do. They whisked us off to see some game with...

We were a family group of 11 people staying at Mugie Camp. It was a trip mainly to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were welcomed at the airstrip by the brilliant guides/drivers - George, Joseph, David and Peter - and then our holiday began. Our safari started straightaway as we went on a game drive on the way to camp....

Beautiful facilities and land, breathtaking wildlife, great food to suit every need. A perfect experience, that far exceeded my every expectation! We spent hours within 30 feet of two lionesses and two cubs while zebras inched closer and closer in a game of chicken. Later a huge water buffalo chased the lionesses and their cubs. Giraffes galore, water buffaloes in...

This was our very first safari camp, and I didn't know what to expect. Little did I know that the accommodations, hosts, guide, and meals would spoil me for the rest of our vacation. This camp truly felt like a home away from home because it is home for the Perretts. Donna, Josh, and their young daughters, as well as...

My fiancé, mom and I travelled to Donna & Josh's camp / home at the end of July / beginning of August and we couldn't have been more welcomed there.

This April we were in Kenya again and made our second visit to Ekorian. It offers a nice variation to the standard game parks with their (almost obligatory) early morning game drives, bush breakfasts, evening game dives and sundowners. Ekorian is very relaxed and you can do all these things if and when you want and there are plenty of...
