Expect budget style accommodation. Permanent tents on a concrete slab with an ensuite at the rear. The tents have a raised bed on the inside but these don't fit very well and had quite a slope to fit. Lighting is poor, and water is not hot. Generator runs for a few hours a day but the powerpoint connection in our... More

Mara Sidai Camp: a place where one is welcomed so warmly and looked after so well..a home away from home. A caring smiling manager who is always going around checking on his guests, accommodating their requests or answering their questions. Staff very friendly always ready to help. Chefs always ready to make food to our likes. The camp is nice,... More

We are happily surprised at how good it is to wake up with the sunrise. The tent has a toilet and shower. The bed is very short for a tall man. Fresh air was still a good night's sleep. The chef is very attentive. My husband does not eat onions. When the cook saw that he is not eating, he... More

The property is extremely serene and beautiful and very close to Masaai mara gate and masaai villages. Food is excellent home -cooked with enough vegetarian options. There is bonfire in night as...

We had a great time at Mara Sidai camp! The property is absolutely beautiful-there are lots of trees and flowers. The power goes out at 10, which was not a problem for us since we had early game drives in the morning! This was actually a very good thing-since the camp was dark, the stars were shining bright! The tents... More

Greate budget Camp! We've stayed here for 2 nights in May 2015. Despite not very good weather we spent beautiful time here. Comfortable tents with all you need inside. Hot water by schedule every day in the evening and morning, the same as electricity. Well served dinning room with bar. Baboons on the territory :-) Not far from the Maasai... More

The camp is beautiful. The tents are basic. Bathroom is Claustrophobic. Beds are clean and comfortable. Food is good enough.Generator is on from 6 am to 7.30 am and 7.30 pm to 10 pm- thats when you get to charge camera and phone and get warm water to bathe. Overall not a bad place to stay for couple of nights.

We had read a lot about this camp with mixed reviews so went with low expectations. The staff were lovely, particularly the operations manager Charity, who helped with anything we needed and checked on us daily, including arranging a replacement mosquito net as ours had come un-stitched. The rooms however were disappointing despite budget expectations, the tents are old and... More

Simple but comfortable and nice camp very close to the gate to Masai Mara Reserve. Just the beds might be longer :-) The food was good and all the staff very friendly. Just the surrounding of the camp with all the rubbish is sad.
