Our stay at Nalepo camp was unbelievable! The camp is situated right in the middle of the Mara surrounded by pure nature and wildlife. Our guide Shiv was attentive and very knowledgeable and our driver Alex was determined to make sure we saw all the coolest animals. Joseph was a great waiter and the food was phenomenal. As three women...

Nalepo camp is located right on the Talek River on a beautiful meander. The camps location allows for amazing wildlife viewing without having to drive for hours. The migration crosses all around the camp too. There is a large pride of resident lions that can be seen along the river and clearly heard at night! The camp itself is an...

Our family of 5 (3 children ages 12, 9, 7) stayed two nights at Nalepo camp and were thoroughly impressed by the facilities and the hospitality and service of the camp staff. Located on a riverbank within the Mara, the camp is ideally suited for game-viewing. We had two game drives per day, each lasting approximately 3 hours. One began...

After driving "blind" with no signage en route, we finally found the camp, which is superbly located on the banks of the Talek River. Very private and Eco-friendly. The staff were great, except for an unfortunate incident between management and a driver/guide that was handled very unprofessionally, and this definitely impacted negatively on our experience. Accommodation was in very comfortable...

I stayed 3 nights at Nalepo with my family in Aug 2015. Overall, we had a really great experience-- the camp is un-fenced so you can hear animals during the night and truly feel like you're out in the wild Mara. The staff, without a doubt, has 5 stars-- they were very friendly and accommodating. I even had a phone...

Highly recommended for family, friends or couples. Nalepo Camp is the perfect way of experiencing the wilderness of the Mara without sacrificing comfort and relaxation. 6 luxurious tents nestled between the trees right by the Mara river. Visits by nocturnal park dwellers, from hippos to elephants, create an unforgettable experience. Fantastic food and expressed staff who make their first priority...

We visited Nalepo Camp during the first week of August, 2015. It was the most amazing part of our 2-week visit to Kenya. The camp is located near a river/ravine - laid out well with a great deal of privacy for all. Special shout out to SHIV - he was courteous, professional, knowledgeable and went out of his way to...

We went to Nalepo Camp expecting something quite basic. What we found was a very high quality camp in the heart of the Mara very well located for great game drives. It is in a beautiful spot in the bush on a bend in the Talek River. You really feel like you're in the action. It is also conveniently only...
