I was fortunate enough to stay over at Instinct of the Mara for one night in September 2019. I was part of a group of mountain bikers who had just finished a 10 Day Rift Valley Odyssey and this was the most incredible place to finish at. After a super long and hot day on our bicycles, we were welcomed with cool drinks, welcoming smiles and a delicious lunch. The view from the deck and dining area is absolutely beautiful and I didn't want to leave just in case I missed something coming out of the bush toward camp :-) My husband & I were so happy we upgraded to sleep in one of the camp's tents: a beautiful bedroom and super functional bathroom with lovely organic Kenyan toiletries for us to use. The bed was very comfortable and we had a fantastic view from our verandah. All the staff were super helpful and friendly and treated is like royalty. They even woke us up with freshly brewed coffee delivered to our verandah at 05:30 in the morning. All our meals were delicious and prepared with care. To top it all off, I was fortunate enough to be awake at 03:00 am to see a lioness walking past my tent. I was told by the Maasai askaris that she passes through that section of the camp almost every night. I would highly recommend this camp and hope to visit it again soon.…
This is a unique and beautiful place to be Very private and secret in the middle of the marvelous beautiful bush of Massai Mara the team is beautiful and kind, the meals are excellent and the tend you live in is luxurious and Highly comfortable! But don’t forget: you live in der middle of the bush and in der Night you hear several animals And their sounds close to the tent! At the early morning Safari we were able to see giraffes Zebras and other animals The guides namely Tize and Zombe, a Massai!, are highly competent and very helpful and showed us a lot during our safaris The lodge tries to be helpful to the environment using solar technique for the electricity
With my great surprise I discovered on internet this camp. It s a bad bad copy of Muthaiga Black leopard . The camp is the same, the tents are the same, the location is the same . But the difference is enormous !!! Before the tents were well furnished, with all comfort you needs, fantastic antique furniture, Lois Vuitton cabinet , triple mat table in the donning room, softy amd elegant cushion by interior designer , under plate in silver plate , Italian cuisine. The big tents built ed by an important Italian fashion industry was rich of an elegant touch . Now it s a bad bad copy of what is was . I posted the original photos , after you decide if it s convenient or not to try .
My recent trip to the Instinct of the Mara exceeded my expectations in every way. The camp is beautiful, the staff and accommodations were perfection, the meals were 5 star and the safari experience was life changing. I highly recommend the Instinct of the Mara and look forward to going back.
I had the great pleasure to stay at this magical location with a small group. Brilliant combination of sustainability, eco chic, with professionalism and care that can only be compared to fine hotels and resorts. The service is outstanding. "You will arrive as a guest and leave as a friend." True. The chef will spoil your taste buds, wonderful wine selection and cocktails will greet you after your safari. The wildlife sightings exceeded any of my dreams, following tracks was exhilarating. You will always feel safe here! The genuine kindness of the staff, combined with their training, will impress you. Only negative? You will have to leave. Say goodbyes. Won’t be easy. Yes, I believe the staff is used to tearful exits. Enjoy your stay!
