We recently stayed here as part of a 3 day/2 night budget safari in Masai Mara. Tourism was off when we were here and we were the only tourists staying here. That was a little odd. However, the tents are good, the attached bathrooms are cement and have hot water and good flushing toilets. I was there with two of...

I spent 3 nights in this camp and have very little to be unhappy about. Let's be fair, it's a lower budget camp, so don't come here expecting 5 star treatment. Staff are friendly, accommodations comfortable, food is definitely not Michelin style but tasty nonetheless. Access to the Mara is within easy reach. I've stayed at more sophisticated camps but...

We stayed here for two nights as part of our safari to the Mara and Amboseli. Tents and common areas are simple and clean but fine for a short stay. Dinners were never great but breakfast was much better. Limited electricity doesn't matter as you're out all day doing game drives, and it was nice to have hot, running water...

I stayed here as part of a volunteering trip to Kenya. This place was so good! Lovely friendly people, lovely food, lovely scenery, felt very safe. The tents were considered luxurious to me as I'd been in a home stay previous to this that didn't have showers! They were clean and had everything I needed. If I ever return to...

I visited this camp while on a volunteer trip may 2014. I loved everything about it! We had the most amazing safari driver (Joseph). I don't know how he spotted the animals half the time--it would be one small rustle in the bush at quite a distance and he'd spot it! The food was typical Kenyan food, but so good!...

The camp is very near the entry gate to Masai Mara. The vegetation around the camp is very natural and the wind blowing in the evening is normally very refreshing and especially after a long game drive. Unlike the many camps, they have a standby generator hence you have access to warm water. The tented and thatched houses are neatly...

Tents with roofs were sturdy, clean, and comfortable. View was amazing. The food was typical Kenyan and might get tiring if you're planning to stay more than a few nights. It was perfect for our one-night stay. The Maasai guards and the stars at night after the generator was turned off were bonuses.

Simplicity rules at Manyatta Camp. The tents are clean, designers have never been to their bathrooms but everything works just fine. There is hot water in the shower, the toilet will flush, there is soap and towels. If you are an ex-boyscout you will find it luxurious. The food is very simple, typical Kenyan. Don't expect gourmet experience but they...

This is a REAL budget camp in the Masai Mara (NOT inside the Reserve). I visited this camp between 13th and 15th December 2013 with a friend of mine who was home for the Christmas holiday.from the USA. The reception area of Manyatta camp was as basic as they come and so were the rooms.. Little beds(And i mean little)...

We were pleasantly surprised with the view, cleanliness and comfort of Manyatta Camp. It was booked by our "budget"Safari company. The tents were spartan, but clean. The electricity (generator) was on from 6:30pm to 10:30pm, and for 1 hour in the morning till 6:30am -- very environmentally friendly. There was adequate hot-water... though if the camp is full, you may...
