The staff at the camp were really lovely and friendly. The pool was a hit with the kids as it was hot. Tents worked perfectly and being on the river so close to park entrance was ideal. We used a local guide from the camp whose English was passable but his skills were tip top and found tons of animals

We, a couple, stayed at Talek for 4 days. We were impressed by the level of service. Very attentive staff and a wonderful owner Mustafa, who did everything to make our trip to Masai Mara comfortable and easy. Our guide Joseph was superb. Food was very good. Room was simple and comfortable. I will stay there again should I come back to Masai Mara in future.

Had an amazing experience. Booked a tent and a normal room for our family of 5. Rooms located right in front of the river. There is a lot of baboons in the property. Hippos and crocodiles in the river which is amazing to see from your room. The tent was spacious. Friendly staff. Food was okay. Located near Talek gate. Game drive organised by them was amazing. The staffs, owners, management everyone was very friendly and helpful. A must place to visit!

- very helpful staff - close to Talek Gate - very short distance to central parts of the Mara, so that you spot a lot of animals especially in morning drives - nicely located at the river - very spacious tents

A great place for the family, good spacious tents and rooms with running power and hot water. The swimming pool is a plus especially for the kids. Food is tasty and freshly served. The hospitality from the staff is commendable. Best of all is the tour guide George who ensures you get the best game drives and spots of viewing. Ahsante sana Mostafa and team and look forward to coming over again
