Ashnil is beautiful! The tents, the restaurant, the view of the river - loved it! The staff are friendly and genuinely interested in your day. We loved talking through our day with Sammy in the evening & having a drink by the fire. Kerore, our driver, was amazing! His knowledge of the animals and land meant that we saw almost... More

Visited this place in 2015 , So far we have been to Ashnil in Tsavo and Samburu. Like all of them. Liked the luxury tent feel , the exterior is made of canvas but the interior is luxury wooden floor. The location at the river bank,very relaxing. Hotel grounds are indeed nice, and there's a nice pool to relax in.... More

This is an excellent place to visit! On arrival you are greeted friendly and you immediately feel at home. This is a true African tent safari experience. Tents are spacious and well equipped. Rooms are neat and the hot water bottles waiting in you bed after dinner was a friendly surprise. Staff are extremely friendly, helpful and have a great... More

Not a camp as we understand it! Tents are luxurious to say the least, with private facilities, and four poster beds complete with mosquito nets, which were turned down and arranged by the house boy at dusk. Hot water bottles were offered as well. Each tent had a riverside veranda from which we could view the resident population of elephants,... More

Nice place with tons of animals to see. Accommodation was good and the staff very attentive to every requirement. We didn't have a riverside view which would have been better but it was reasonably close to the lounge and dining area. Some rooms were quite a walk away. The tens are very well equipped with fully tiled showers and toilets.... More

Excellent place to stay within the Masai Mara reserve. Had a wonderful time. Very friendly and helpful staff who made the stay pleasurable. Tented rooms were spacious and very comfortable. Quality of food is good, but we did not consider to be luxurious. Only downside was the 3-hour rear-end crushing ride to get there (and another 3 hours getting out).... More

This place is beautiful! It truly is a LUXURY tented camp. The "tents" are nicer than most hotel rooms. The setting is just so surreal and all of the staff were extremely helpful (and speak English - thank you!) It gets cold at night, bring some warm jammies to sleep. Also a very warm jacket to wear on the morning... More

Great location - you are right in the 'thick' of the Mara, so you don't have to go on lengthy drives to get to the action. Tents are quite nice as are the bathrooms. Food is good. Nice service and attentive staff. Liked the pool. No complaints. The hippos add some good ambiance on the river.

This camp is situated right next to a river which is fantastic. You have a constant view of the hippos and sometimes giraffes and gazelles tend to visit as well. Much like the other camps, the electricity is switched off at midnight since its run by a generator. The staff are friendly and quite helpful.

From the pre visit emails to the whole stay at the camp- they gave us such good memories! The cottages ( try and get # 23 or 24- they are close to the reception area where the meals are... More
