We just had four fabulous nights and didn’t want to leave. This camp has a prime location on the river, where you can watch the hippos. Short drive to see incredible wildlife. The entire staff, is attentive and engaging. They are very knowledgeable about the area, traditions and animal behavior. Our guide for the game drives was exceptional and we were fortunate to see the big 5, plus dozens more. The camp is very eco conscious and tends to your every need. We would highly recommend for anyone traveling to Kenya. We enjoyed every minute we were there and getting to know the staff made for a nice personalized experience. We typically don’t stay in the same place twice on our travels, but this would definitely be one exception.
My friend and I enjoyed a stay at the Sentinel camp for three days in early September. every care was taken to make our stay enjoyable, comfortable, and authentic. The staff was amazing and couldn't have been more gracious. I would whole heartedly recommend a stay at this camp if you are considering the Maasai Mara experience.
Sentinel Mara was a very pleasant surprise to us as we have been in the Maasai Mara area numerous times and had not been there. The camp is simply superb! It is located in the forest right on the Mara River and hippos are in the river right below the camp to serenade you. Our tent was among the very finest we have EVER been in (of probably over 40 camps in Africa) and was very roomy, nicely decorated, and comfortable. The food was exceptional and the chef accommodated any request. The staff was extremely attentive. Sentinel is only a short ride from the Musiara Marsh area which has excellent wildlife viewing. The camp is very Eco-conscious and they strive to leave little environmental impact. The camp staff is as good as we have ever seen. They have obviously been well trained by Peter, the owner, who should get an A+ for customer service training. It is hard to add to all the accolades I have read in previous reviews but this camp is very much worth your visit. They make you feel at home. We are already looking forward to returning!…
We stayed at this lodge in September with a group of friends. (Unfortunately only one night) We were immediately greeted by the whole team with a welcome drink and taken to our very beautiful and well-maintained tents. The view is breathtaking. The highlight of this lodge is the staff. Peter and his team were incredibly attentive and endeavoured to make our stay unforgettable, which they did. I hope we can come back one day.
Sentinel Mara is spectacular across the board. It is in the heart of the Masai Mara, allowing for easy access to excellent game drives—with a location along the Mara River that allows for game viewing even while relaxing at camp. The camp itself is outstanding, with charming communal tents for dining and relaxing, comfortable private lodging tents, excellent food, and wonderful service. The camp's staff and setup are both extraordinary, and they make for an unforgettable safari experience in the Mara.
