We were there for our honeymoon and had a totally fantastic time. We had an amazing five star+ tent and the stay couldn't be more friendly. Solomon (from house keeping) was just fantastic and a pleasure to deal with. All in all a wonderful and memorable stay. Would be great for families too

This is the epitome of one's idea of a game camp! Before arriving I couldn't imagine how nice the amenities would actually be. The pictures of the "resort" are beautiful but one has to experience it to really get an understanding. The tents take one to the scenes from "Out of Africa". Beautiful decor and well appointed furnishings, lovely bathrooms... More

I went on a safari to Masai Mara and stayed here for 2 nights. We received the best service, the rooms were very clean and the staff were awesome ready to assist at any point. My kids were really happy, and look forward to our next visit in Kenya. We highly recommend this property.
