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!... More

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... More

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... More

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)... More

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... More

The camp lies just outside the park, near the gate, which is convenient. Just in front of the camp there is a very pathetic and dirty village. There are plastic bags all over. The tents are spacious and so is the attached bathroom. I had always water with good pressure in the shower. The hot water takes quite a long... More

“The newly built tents in the down side are very nice and spacious unlike the old tents which are small and a bit worn out.”
 of 5 bubbles FavourSafaris, Mar 20, 2014 | Read review
“Since this is a budget camp, ensure that your tent has zips that actually zip up or else you will freeze and get wet during the cold and or rainy season. Make sure you bring along a powerful torch or solar light as the generator is switched off at 10.30pm sharp. Try and get a room near the dining area, you feel safer esp if you are females.”
