We are just home after a fantastic visit to Kenya & Zanzibar with the Swedish "Mamma Zebra" group. A five night stay at the JK Mara camp in the Masai Mara national reserve was the highlight of our trip. The camp is run by Masai men from surrounding villages and the service was impeccable, kind and efficient. The tents were... More

With only a short distance to the Masai Mara park entrance, this camp lies nice and quiet surrounded by trees and bushes. The camp is very clean, nice and the service is always on top with helpful personal all english speaking. The tent was cleaned everyday and probably cleaner than many hotel rooms i stayed in. The food was different... More

So nice place with comfy and clean tents surrounded by small trees. Great service from the masai people that runs the camp. Very good food both for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The camp is located just outside the park but is still a good choice for safari trips

The place is beautiful. Tents are located under the shade of green trees beside a little temporal stream. The tents are clean and comfortable. You have lights from PV and warm water. From the camp to the park is just a short drive. Personal working in the camp are very kind and efficient. Food was good, and we were surprised... More

We were visiting the camp with "Mama Zebra" tour. The camp environment was very safe. Our tents were very comfortable and clean. The staff supplied with hot water every afternoon for shower and the beds were warmed up by hot water bottles before sleeping. All the meals were tasty and generous. The camp staff was very service minded. The tour... More

Modest tented accommodation with toilet & separate manual shower stall, was clean and well maintained. We were entertained by a Masai dance put on by the staff members. The food was good. Our game driver Julius was excellent, we saw the most abundant wildlife in the Mara, right from the time we were picked up at the airstrip, our ride... More

This place could do just a few small things to make the stay more enjoyable: 1) offer some real or better coffee. at breakfast we got hot water and a beaten up tin of "Africafe" instant coffee with a soiled spoon and an inch of coffee powder in the bottom. 2) show some interest in the patrons. there were 5...

We stayed here for two nights at the end of Sept 2011. On arrival we were greeted by local Masai people who are employed to run this wonderful camp. This was our first ever Safari /camp & we were pleasantly surprised by how clean & comfortable the camp was. Our tent had everything we needed, with wildlife all around, you... More
