We spend a long weekend in Mara Ngenche tented camp. This place is uniquely positioned in the pocket where the Mara and Talek rivers meet. With just 10 tented accommodations, the attention and hospitality for the guests is simply outstanding. The tents have standard of a five star hotel room and services the same levels. Food is above all expectations.... More

We were a family of seven with 2 children under 8. We enjoyed our stay very much. Big thanks to the entire Ngenche team, they are an excellent team. Our hotel guide and driver Joseph made the trip very memorable by showing us the best of Mara. We will surely be back. I highly recommend Ngenche for families with children... More

I'm sorry I didn't write this sooner! We visited the Mara Ngenche in late August 2015 and were blown away by how wonderful everything was. The manager Paul was so welcoming and all the staff were easy and friendly and made us feel so comfortable. They made us feel like family and never like tourists. The tent was beautiful and... More

We´re very much spoiled and demanding safari guests,because we´ve lived in Kenya for three years and have seen many places and done many safaris (not only in Kenya). Mara Ngenche, on top of the Mara river, is certainly one of the most impressive places we´ve seen in Kenya (when coming back again), and not only in Kenya .... And the... More
